The reception for the 2013 Fargo Moorhead Visual artists Big Show kicked off with a bang on April 16 as regional artists and art connoisseurs came to view the multimedia exhibit. The mission of the FMVA is to promote and support quality Visual Arts in the Fargo-Moorhead area by educating and encouraging visual artists and their communities.
Over 50 artists of all ages and backgrounds have their work displayed at the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County at the Hjemkomst Center and many more came to the reception to show their support. Local artists gathered in the reception area for food and refreshments and talked to guests about their works—everything from traditional paintings like Winona and Jason by Laura Youngbird, and Rude II, a screen print by Kent Kapplinger, to multimedia sculpture like Trashy Bridal Gown by Suzanne Williams, and OVO by Terry Mallick. The exhibit is open to the public until June 3. For more information on FMVA events visit FMVA.org.
