Fiber Works & Rosemaling Exhibit Is Open. Artists Reception is May 4

Works by Artist Cathy Forgit of Fertile MN and Jean Honl of Roseau.

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC) is excited to present the Fiber Works and Rosemaling Exhibit featuring artists Cathy Forgit and Jean Honl.  Meet these artists at the Artist Reception on May 4 from 1-4PM. We will have light refreshments, and Jean will also be demonstrating her rosemaling. This is held in conjunction with the Art and Wine Walk.

Cathy Forgit of Fertile, Minnesota shares pieces that harken back to the “olden days”: coverlet patterns from the past, hides from primitive sheep once used to keep the sleeping warm, striking block patterns, and one wool rug spun from the wool of her own sheep. 

Jean Honl of Roseau, Minnesota not only decorates functional pieces with rosemaling, she constructs those pieces herself. She has her own woodshop where she builds pieces such as the chair on display in the gallery. And then she adorns them with rosemaling, a traditional Norwegian style. 

Cathy Forgit’s Fiber Works

Working in these different mediums, Forgit and Honl have brought the bright and bold colors many of us have been missing this time of year! Come visit the Fiber Works and Rosemaling Exhibit at the NWMAC gallery now through May 4.  The gallery is located at 211 DeMers Avenue, East Grand Forks, MN 56721(located within the Riverwalk Artists Gallery.)The gallery hours are Friday–Saturday, 2:00–8:00 P.M.and Sunday, 2:00–5:00 P.M. (But before you go, please double check to make sure the gallery is open.)

The Art and Wine Walk is located in downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks. Participating businesses feature an artist showcasing their work, while offering wine and appetizers. The Art and Wine Walk has a small participation cost if you want to attend the entire event. However, the public is welcome to come to our gallery to support the artists without choosing to participate in the official Art and Wine Walk. Take advantage of the opportunity to view the art on display and for sale at the Riverwalk Gallery.
