Through the month of September, we had an amazing time hosting 19 local artists working in the medium of Japanese washi brand, mt tape. Each piece was more unique than the last, with artists creating everything from entire dresses made out of washi tape to design-based works, portraits, multi-dimensional pieces, installation art and more. Artists like Jennifer Davis and Michael Cina stayed true to their aesthetics, using mt tape to accent and embellish their beautiful, recognizable compositions, while artists such as Joshua Nelson and Lex Thompson chose to go more large scale, bringing a Minnesota wildlife themes into the equation for a fun front window display. We’re sad to see the work go, but happy to have collaborated with such talented artists — and hopefully helped them discover a new art medium in mt tape!
