Frank Gaard's particular brand of seedy pop art has been raising the eyebrows of the highbrow art elite since the mid-1970s. The Chicago-born artist came to Minnesota in 1969 to work as professor at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, with exhibitions worldwide and inclusion in the permanent collections of the Walker Art Center, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Art Institute of Chicago. CO Exhibitions is celebrating the revered and reviled painter with a rare retrospective of his work, spanning more than four decades of cheeky kitsch. The exhibition will include selections from Gaard's famed underground zine Artpolice, pieces from his continuing portrait series, large-scale works that haven't been shown for decades, installations and recent collaborative works with his wife, Pamela. The opening reception will include a screening of a short documentary featuring a studio visit and interview of Gaard by local news and art veteran Robyne Robinson.
