RWAG Featured Artists: Nibs and Knives


Nibs and Knives


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.
