The Winter Fantasy Art Exhibit is the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council’s current exhibit at our gallery at Northland Community and Technical College.
Join us as our artists help you to escape into other worlds that lead into the magic, myths and fantasy of winter. Visit our exhibit and let your mind explore as you go on an adventure in our winter fantasy wonderland.
