David Klein Gallery’s downtown Detroit location debuts Rosalind Tallmadge, Terrain this week. The exhibition will feature the latest series of paintings from multi-media artist Rosalind Tallmadge, who is alumna of Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Tallmadge uses unique materials to create her multi-textured paintings. For Terrain, which is on view from Nov. 13 to Dec. 18, the artist has explored the use of natural minerals. Using chunks of mica with metal leaf, glass beads, and sequins, her work serves as a metaphor for “the power that is produced by the combination of traditionally male and female characteristics,” according to David Klein Gallery.

A Cincinnati, Ohio native, Tallmadge now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her art has appeared in exhibits in New York City, Detroit, and Chicago. Recently, she was included in the Cranbrook Art Museum exhibit With Eyes Opened: Cranbrook Academy of Art, which ran from June to September of this year and highlighted the school’s contributions to various artistic fields. Tallmadge received her MFA from Cranbrook in 2015.

David Klein Gallery, located at 1520 Washington Blvd., will host a by-appointment opening reception for the show from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Nov. 13. Those interested in attending can reserve their spot online.

Outside of the event, the gallery is open from noon to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday. Visitors who are not fully vaccinated must wear a mask.
