Student Art Showcase

StdntShwcse1-031313The newest installation in the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council Gallery is a collection of artworks by high school students from Greenbush-Middle River and East Grand Forks.

Student Showcase includes acrylic paintings, charcoal drawings, watercolor paintings, and oil paintings by students in grades ten through twelve, taught by teachers Deb Aune (GMR) and Erin Nelson (EGF), who both exhibited their work here last summer together.

StdntShwcse3-031313Subject matter ranges from wild animals to self-portraits, and a few floral impressions as well.  The students’ mastery of simple graphite and charcoal captures contrasts in animal dispositions, while bright colors exude floral and facial expressions.

The exhibit Student Showcase will be available for public viewing until April 14th.  Located in the River Walk Centre in East Grand Forks, the gallery is within the River Walk Artists gallery, 211 Demers Avenue. Hours are Wednesday through Saturday 2 p.m. to 8 p.m, and Sunday 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
