September 17 through October 30, 2020: “Hidden Nature” Photography Showcase by Jessica Bak. Jessica received an individual artist grant in 2017 to capture and present this showcase. Jessica said, “My hope is that you will experience nature through my eyes. My photographs portray the beauty that surrounds us but is often taken for granted. We simply forget to stop, look around, and say ‘Breathtaking!’ Take a moment to breathe and absorb the sighting around you. This is my passion; one that I would like to share with the world. There are so many unique moments that can be captured in nature. So come, take a journey through the nature, and find the beauty in these photographs. I hope someday you will find your own journey!” Check back for a link of the virtual tour to Jessica’s exhibit!
Join us on Thursday, September 17 at 5:30 pm for a virtual artist reception and artist talk with Jessica Bak!

Through October 2020: Although the gallery is still closed to the public, John Kellen has his photography show up! The Willmar Area Arts Council has created a virtual tour of the exhibit, which can be viewed here: https://www.willmarareaartscouncil.org/gallery/
About the exhibit, John says, “This exhibit not only showcases my photography, the images portray the story of my mother’s journey with Alzheimers and our travels searching to create peak life experiences while we are still able.” The exhibit will be up until the end of October, so there is a good chance the building will open before then and you will be able to view the show in person.
*Indicates the project was funded in part with with a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council made possible by the voters of Minnesota thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund, and a grant from the McKnight Foundation.
