"It's In The Water" Featuring New Works From MALT, TEAD & ELLEN RUTT

RSVP To The Event On Facebook

Inner State Gallery is proud to showcase an entirely new body of work from three of Detroit’s most progressive up and coming local artists with It’s In The Water an exhibition featuring Malt, Tead & Ellen Rutt. Join us in Eastern Market to celebrate the talents of these artists on September 27th from 7-10pm. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

Ellen Rutt 
An exploration of vibrant color palettes and textural layers of paint and mixed media, each of these multifaceted artists brings a unique style to “It’s In The Water”, showing what makes them a creative force to be reckoned with in the City of Detroit.


Over the past decade, graffiti mainstays Malt and Tead have collaborated on everything from gallery exhibitions to public art installations throughout the country. Using hard lines and explosive color schemes, their work juxtaposes the deeply layered mixed media pieces of Ellen Rutt. Coming off of her sold-out exhibition at the Detroit Red Bull House of Art in the spring of 2013, Rutt continues to explore her mixed media collage work, blending digital and traditional techniques into compositions of organic forms and sharp geometric shapes. With over 50 new mixed media paintings and limited edition prints, this is an exhibition that is not to be missed.


“Each of these artists have made a strong impact on us with their work.  We feel that this explosion of color will cap off another great Detroit summer and provide a fitting transition into fall,” gallery co-founder Jesse Cory said.

Welcoming artist reception will begin at 7pm and will end at 10pm.
