Todd Norsten: NOWHERE

Todd Norsten’s monoprints, now on view at Highpoint Center for Printmaking, are low-key and super witty, with a resemblance to highway signs. Perfect for these dystopian times, the prints rely upon text as a primary mode of expression — with misanthropically funny results (don’t worry, there are a couple of bears in there, too). They bring messages such as “THE END IS AT HAND AGAIN” or “KEEP OUT NO ENTRY STAY AWAY UNLESS I KNOW YOU.” Another print pairs a giant gray square with the caption “DESERT SUNSET” because Minnesota winters are bleak, and monochromes are definitely in season. (9 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Fri., noon-4 p.m. Sat. through Nov. 11 at Highpoint Center for Printmaking, 912 W. Lake St., Mpls. Free.
