Jerome Emerging Artists Fellowship Exhibition

Having your favorite young painter win a Jerome Fellowship is like seeing your favorite indie band get props from Pitchfork: The artist gets a boost. The audience gets hip to something fresh and great. And you get to be right. Such is the case with Samual Weinberg, whose folkloric, pop-mystical paintings we’ve been obsessed with since they cropped up in a 2013 juried exhibition at Rosalux. Weinberg jumbles various painting languages, from Renaissance oil to cartooning, to craft narratives that read like postmodern totem poles, or creation stories from the future. They feel wise and ancient, even when laced with hamburgers and Facebook images. This weekend, he shows alongside fellow Fellows Star Wallowing Bull, Emmett Ramstad, Holly Streekstra and Lindsay Rhyner, in what’s looking like the most promising Jerome exhibition in recent memory. Opening reception 6-8 p.m. Fri., free, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, 2501 Stevens Av. S., Mpls., J. SCOTT
