A big thank you too to my family who came from Wisconsin (with cheese in hand!) and Illinois. My mom and dad have been incredibily supportive of us through it all. My dad even labored hard to provide the base for "Le Prince du Ciel."
Thanks too to Until the End who played a great set for everyone. Their music really added to the ambiance of the night.
And finally, thanks to Laura at the gallery and of course Lynn and Frank for the opportunity to show at their space.
Enjoy some pics from the opening. Hope to see the rest of you next Friday at the closing!

ABOUT THE EVENT:
Please join Rabi Sanfo at the Frank Stone Gallery March 19-29. He will be exhibiting his latest body of work at his first solo show titled "L'âge du Fer" which means "Iron Age" in his native French.
Local band Until the End will be performing at the opening. Please stop in, enjoy a glass of wine, and learn more about his work!
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Burkinabé artist Rabi Sanfo immigrated to Minneapolis in 2004. Starting his business Yarbi Design first in his garage, Sanfo put his welding background into use by creating metal furniture. Since then, he expanded his work to include metal sculptures, and in 2007 relocated to the Q.arma Building in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. Although his artistic techniques have evolved over the years, the core theme of his work remains: to share the history and culture of his native Burkina Faso.
My art is contemporary African art inspired by my country, Burkina Faso, and Africa in general. Through my art, I want to share the rich and impressive history and culture of West Africa. The shapes of my sculptures, furniture and decorative objects are inspired by words, stories, fables and situations that come into my mind, and my culture. By the magic of bending, grinding and welding, I try to give these inspirations a form, an expression and a touch of life so when I get lost in a deep contemplation, I feel like they are living.
