Art Exhibits

  • General Information on Exhibits

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council conducts several exhibits during the year.

Our main exhibit is the Northwest Minnesota Art Exhibition that occurs each Spring.  Our NW MN Art Exhibit Entry is now on-line in our portal.  To start the process LOGIN and register.   More info here.  If you are a teacher or entering pieces for a group, please complete one on-line entry generically for the enter group and then look within the application for the updated teacher/group spreadsheet.  The spreadsheet is in Microsoft Excel and will be attached to your group on-line entry form.

During the Northwest Minnesota Art Exhibition, pieces are chosen for our annual Traveling Art Exhibit.  The travel exhibit is mainly on display at local libraries throughout the region.

We have a gallery location in Thief River Falls at Northland Community and Technical College. We host various exhibits in that location and welcome your inquiry to participate in future exhibitions.  Contact at the Arts Council office.
