The color and pattern explosion happening at the American Swedish Institute (currently via the marvelous Gudrun Sjödén exhibition) is complemented by this show of work by the Aune sisters from Duluth. How craft and heritage intersect in art is on view here. So are the influences of folk art and contemporary Scandinavian design. Alison paints; Kirsten works with stencils and screen printing. Delightful patterns and vibrant colors are integral to their oeuvre. Like Sjödén, the Aunes also have a growing international following.
