Artwork by Frank Gaard
Known for his brash personality and his idiosyncratic art practice, Minneapolis-based painter Frank Gaard has made an indelible mark on the local visual arts community over the past four decades. Using a vibrant, sometimes acrid palette, Gaard offers up satire through imagery derived from his emotional life, intellectual and political obsessions, and relationships, skewering pop culture excesses as well as academic and art world elitism. In honor of his "Poison & Candy" exhibit at the Walker (on view Jan-May 2012), Gaard has created two collectible mugs featuring designs from his 2009 "Pony Painting" - one featuring a pink "girl" pony, one with a blue "boy" pony.
- "Girl" and "Boy" designs sold seperately for $12 each, or buy both together for $20 ($4 savings!)
