Opening Reception: Saturday, September 18th 6-9pm
Show Runs: September 18 - October 31, 2010

Things discarded and forgotten are inspiration for Allen Brewer and Pamela Valfer; their exhibition Alternate Futures explores the complexities of exhuming cultural ephemera to imprint new relevancy and meaning to things abandoned by time. Their work will explore an alternate path and future history, from refuse to venerated relic Brewer and Valfer assemble drawings and sculpture that provide a convincing argument for re-envisioning the past, present and future.

Brewer and Valfer both live and work in St. Paul and are adjunct professors at CVA and MCAD. They have shown extensively throughout Minnesota. Valfer attended Vermont Studio Center Artist Residency and received a 2009 Minnesota State Arts Board Artists Initiative Grant. Her work is also included in the viewing program slide registry of The Drawing Center in NYC. Brewer has had numerous solo exhibitions, garnering him a national reputation as both an illustrator and artist.
