It's normal to feel a bit resentful when winter settles in earlier than usual (that is what happened, right?). But if your ideas on coping with the next few months are limited to hot toddies, hot buttered rum and hearty cursing, you might benefit from Mark Sloniker's more imaginative take on the change of seasons. His new installation Winter Is Soluble combines sculpture and interior decoration to represent the arrival of spring. Sloniker's representations of nature are brightly colored and fanciful, drawing inspiration from his rural Wisconsin childhood. Magpie should provide the perfect setting for Sloniker's cheerful genre-mixing: The space, which opened in June, not only hosts exhibits and workshops, but offers the work of local clothing and jewelry designers for sale.
