The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is pleased to announce we will have 2 Featured Artists at River Walk Artists Gallery and Shop in East Grand Forks, Mn from March 26 through April 27, 2014. Sherri Kruger of Badger Minnesota and Lynne King of Alvarado, Minnesota will be sharing their artwork with us.
Everyone is invited to attend an artist reception at River Walk Artists Gallery Saturday March 29, 2014 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
Sherri Kruger is a glass artist creating wonderful mosaic items of every shape and size, out of stained glass, recycled metal and cement. She has participated in many shows and won just as many awards, including Best of Show at the Grand Cities Art Show in Grand Forks, North Dakota. She is a member of Artist’s on Main in Roseau and displays her works there and she is also the Art Club Advisor at Badger High School.
Lynne King hails from Muncie, Indiana but made Northwest Minnesota her home a few years ago. She is a photographer with a keen eye for landscapes that tell a story, wildlife, and birds. She also loves “old things” and is inspired by barns, houses and cars. As a former librarian, she is of the firm belief that a picture is worth a thousand words and a good story is hard to resist!
Both Artists have benefitted from the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council by either receiving grant money or they have participated in workshops designed to help artists with their business.
We are happy to have both Sherri and Lynne as the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council Featured Artists for March!
As always, the River Walk Artists Shop and Gallery is free and open to the public. They are open Wednesday through Saturday from 2:00 pm to 8:00pm and on Sundays from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
