Vibrant Matters

Opens Saturday: Always inventive, the seven Minnesota artists whose new work is featured in “Vibrant Matters” transform the most unlikely stuff into art — rusty cans, roadkill, animal hair, sausage casings, found sound, dark matter. Some or all of that detritus will find its way into their new show. The mysterious, brooding image shown here is a still from “Cento,” a film by Michael Thomsen. Other participants are David Emitt Adams, who uses 19th-century photographic processes to print images on antique cans; bronze fabricator David Aschenbrener; art taxidermist Sarina Brewer; fiber artist Erica Spitzer Rasmussen; musician/filmmaker Chris Strouth, and photographer Keith Taylor. (Opening reception 6-8 p.m. Sat. Noon-4 p.m. Tue., 12-6 p.m. Wed.-Fri., 11-5 p.m. Sat. Ends March 14. Free. Instinct Art Gallery, 940 Nicollet Mall, Mpls. 612-208-0696 or
