Soft or bold, face-first or fading away–these works of exemplary technique use color to enlighten, embody and set apart their subject matter from the stark, contrasting nature of… the ordinary. Artists from Northwest Minnesota include Joel Miller & Sue Suess of Raven Works Forge in Roseau, Therese Jacobson of Alvarado, Phyllis Kalliokoski of East Grand Forks, Stephanie Olson of Thief River Falls, Alicia Spilde of Karlstad and Elizabeth Rockstad of Ada.

(Warren, MN)  The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council (NWMAC) is happy to announce an exhibit of Paintings by Karlee Westrem of East Grand Forks, Minnesota. Ms. Westrem’s artworks will be showcased in our East Grand Forks gallery Wednesday, May 4, 2016, through Sunday, May 29, 2016.

Karlee is majoring in art and mathematics at the University of North Dakota. She was a recipient of the Student Artist Training Grant from the NWMAC in 2013 while she was a student at East Grand Forks High School. She has participated in several exhibits sponsored by the NWMAC, winning first place this year at the regional exhibit in Roseau, MN.

A life-long resident of East Grand Forks, Karlee’s exhibited paintings reflect past memories of one of her favorite places, Duluth, Minnesota. “I love driving along Lake Superior’s North Shore, and also exploring hidden beauties in the wilderness,” she says. Lighthouses, water, sailboats, and an occasional humorous imaginary scene painted with acrylics fill her canvases.
