Light Grey Art Lab hosting fundraising sale

Two-day sale features pieces from 2012 exhibitions

WHITTIER — Prints, sculptures, paper toys and other pieces featured in 2012 exhibitions at Light Grey Art Lab will be offered during a two-day fundraising sale for the community art center Jan. 12–13.

Artists featured in last year’s gallery shows — including “Expletive Typography Show,” “Night of the Exquisite Corpse” and “Tarot, Mystics and the Occult” — donated artwork for the fundraiser. Proceeds from the sale will support upcoming exhibitions, community events and classes at Light Grey Art Lab.

Light Grey Art Lab opened its workshop and gallery space near the Minneapolis College of Art and Design campus in March when founder Lindsay Nohl and her coworkers moved their Paper Bicycle design studio from Uptown and began hosting classes and gallery shows.

The sale runs 10 a.m.–6 p.m. both days at Light grey Art Lab, 118 E. 26th St. For more information, go to lightgreyartlab.com.
