Juried exhibit featuring work by artists living within the Mississippi
Watershed, Great Lakes or Red River of the North that explores their
relationship to water.

Rivers and watersheds are a metaphor as to how we are all connected. This exhibit will explore both the diverse perspectives and shared experiences that have been formed in this region, where water is so fundamental to our way of life.


This exhibit is also made possible, in part, by funding from the Bemidji Area Arts Endowment.

Existential Psychoanalysis (What is Life?)

Paintings by Tawnee Corning
August 2 – Oct 25
Opening reception 5pm-7pm

“Existential Psychoanalysis” is a series of portraits with images of outer space and nature projected onto them to portray the feelings that come with the struggle of finding the meaning and purpose of one’s life.

Inspiration for the psychedelic themes of Tawnee’s paintings come from her love of 1960’s & 1970’s music, poster art, and psychedelic light shows.

From my original work painting watercolor landscapes, I’ve created in a myriad of mediums and subject matters for some 40 years, but abstract is where I’ve landed and I love the challenge.   An artist hopes to grow, to stretch and experiment during a lifetime of creating and abstract is my stretch now.
