About Trey:
Trey Everett will be showcasing his most recent work from the past 11 months. “Since March of last year I have been delving into local and international political and editorial illustration work. Working with the Crookston Times I submit an illustration each week which keeps me on my toes and has helped me hone skills of translating ideas in my head into images on paper, which can be very challenging!”

Some of Everett’s latest work also includes images for the Revised Common Lectionary Year A that runs from December 1, 2019 to November 26, 2020. For this series Everett has been working on and developing a style of pen and ink art called Neo Traditional. “It’s a bold, realistic stylized art that incorporates nature symbolism. Neo Traditional is also recognized as a tattoo style art work.” Everett will be showing a wide variety of his pen and ink artwork from past years as well. (Instagram: @treyeverettcreates)

About Annie:
Annie Fitzgerald’s music has been described as “a blend of Tori Amos’ intellectual appeal, Sarah McLachlan’s mystical charm and Edie Brickell’s baroque spirit” (Jamsphere). Honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as an artist to watch, Fitzgerald released her second album You & Me & the Sun on June 1st, 2018. Produced by Danny O’Brien (The Farewell Circuit, Dem Yuut), the album finds Fitzgerald joining gifted Minneapolis musicians and shaping a textured folk-pop sound mixed with the raw vitality of rock-and-roll. Since her first release In Good Time, Fitzgerald spent time a part of the NYC Indie scene, started a family, and welcomed a move back to her home state of MN and a newfound sense of space to create. You & Me & the Sun explores connection, vulnerability, love, and sparks in the span of time navigating the balance between motherhood & her life as a songwriter. (www.anniefitzgerald.com)

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC) is excited to announce the opening of the new exhibit, Nibs and Knives featured in our East Grand Forks gallery fromJuly 12 to July 31, 2014. The pen & ink drawings of Trey Everett of Crookston, and the woodcarvings of Tom Brosseau of Thief River Falls, will be showcased.

 

IMG_0900Trey was a contributing artist to the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council’s 2013 Community Supported Art program. His inspirational pen & ink “holy doodles” are “images that came to mind from meditating on scripture passages, books, past events, conversations with friends and family, and from simply trying to be attentive to God in my everyday life,” he says. Trey also facilitates healing through art sessions throughout the northwest Minnesota region.

 

Tom Brosseau has always enjoyed working with wood, beginning wood carving when he was about 19 years old. His love of the outdoors inspired him to carve birds and wildlife. Then a few years ago he “picked up a chainsaw and tried [his] hand at carving with it” and discovered he loved it. Through the Northwest Minnesota Arts Council, Tom received grant money to purchase tools and expand his carving work.

 

The Nibs and Knives exhibit, opening July 12th, will be featured during the Art & Wine Walk, Saturday, July 19th, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public in the NWMAC gallery, located inside the River Walk Artists Shop & Gallery at the Riverwalk mall near Mamma Maria’s, across Demers Avenue from Cabella’s in East Grand Forks. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Sundays, 2:00 to 5:00 p.m.  For more information call the Arts Council office at: 218-745-9111, or email: tmjacobson16@gmail.com.
