RWAG: “Seaside Visions”


JUNE 04-29, 2014


Reception: June 21, 2014

1:00pm-5:00pm during the Art and Wine Walk




The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is very excited to bring the art of these two East Grand Forks residents.  Mentor and Student, together under one roof!  ‘Seaside Visions’ is their interpretation of what one would find in their environment at a seashell-strewn oceanside.

Exhibit7Erin Nelson teaches visual arts at East Grand Forks Senior High.  She has an appreciation of 70’s artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, and Jean Michael Basquait, as well as by the environment she dearly loves, the ocean. Many of her paintings incorporate the use of numerals or lettering into her designs. The paintings she selected for this exhibit are in honor of her grandmother who introduced her to the ocean’s beauty from her earliest childhood. Nelson adds, “I hope this collection gives the viewer a sense of that environment my Grandma taught me to love so much.”

Exhibit5Karlee Westrem is a 2014 graduate of East Grand Forks High and has been a student of Erin’s for several years.  Karlee received a mentorship grant from the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council during the summer of 2013, and has participated in area student art exhibits, earning top scores. She says she has been inspired by her teacher, Mrs. Nelson, who introduced her to famous artists and styles of art, and experimented with color and design along side her mentor.

Exhibit1The ‘Seaside Visions’ exhibit and the artists will be featured during the Art & Wine Walk on Saturday, June 21st, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm in the NWMAC Gallery. Non-alcoholic beverages and refreshments will be served. To register for the Art & Wine Walk, visit the Blue Moose on the day of the event.
