Saturday 5/5

More than 30 artists will welcome visitors to the studios at the Traffic Zone in an annual ritual that grows a bit more ambitious every season. Twenty-one artists have studios at the TZ, which is conveniently located where Interstate 394 disgorges onto Washington Avenue N. in the Minneapolis Warehouse District. This year several of them have invited artist friends to share their spaces for the evening, so the building will be hopping with black-and-white photos, colorful abstract paintings, minimalist sculpture, moody landscapes, Chinese-modern landscapes, whimsical prints, moiré-patterned designs and more. Portraitist Vesna Kittelson produced this lively cut-out image of "Christine."
