ABOUT Gray Matter Series
Monday, April 23rd 2018
6-9pm at Winsome Goods Flagship + Studio (201 6th St. SE, #2 Minneapolis, MN)
Part of an ongoing set of collaborations led by artist and milliner Anna Lee, this pop-up gallery and shopping experience launches the SS2018 collection of one-of-a-kind hats and digitally printed made-to-order scarves from the paintings of Ruby3 by Anna Lee, as well as the custom (vegan and cruelty free) lipsticks Ruby + Rosa by Elixery.
Shop the collection, meet the collaborators, and take in the original paintings and photo/video exhibition by photographer Lauren Krysti, creative director Melanie Haroldson, hair and makeup artist Kristine Loehrer, and filmmakers Kylee and Christian Creative.
You’ll also get a closer look at the workspace of our gracious host Winsome Goods, a line of women’s clothing designed, sampled and produced under one roof by a small team of people. Their mission is to create timeless and sustainable garments that do not adhere closely to a specific trend, fad, or seasonality.
Development of scarves from original paintings was made possible thanks to a grant from The Arts Partnership.
The Gray Matter Series is about finding the middle ground between the polarization within ourselves (and our greater communities) through expression of sometimes conflicting concepts and emotions. Through these collaborations, we find beauty in the complexities of the modern human experience and peace in knowing we are not alone.
