People-watching can be entertaining and fun, especially at a museum like the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. See what plein air painter Curtis Gander saw — and captured — at the renowned museum during this unique solo exhibition.
A unique series of miniature paintings by Minnesota painter Curtis Gander is on view at Minneapolis’ Douglas Flanders & Associates. The fascinating series features paintings that show people viewing works of art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The artist writes, “Painting miniatures was a new endeavor — I felt the small scale lent itself to the intimate nature of this series. The MIA miniatures are all based on candid photos that I took during various visits to the museum. I have always enjoyed visiting the MIA and enjoy photography, so the series was a natural outcome of my interests.”
“Viewing the Viewer” is currently on view and will show through December 4. To learn more, visit Douglas Flanders & Associates.
