‘Art on the Plains’ opens with a bang
We had a ball at the opening reception for Art on the Plains XI, held on Saturday, January 28. A boisterous crowd showed up to catch the first few glimpses of this regional juried exhibition, including an impressive showing from the featured artists, many of whom traveled to be part of the festivities.
Artists winning awards during the reception for their work:
1st place – Jamie Burmeister, for two works; a video installation entitled The Music Within My Head and an installation of ceramic figurines entitled vermin.me.
2nd place – Keith Taylor. He has two photographs in AOP: Hill, The Badlands, and Rain Cloud, The Badlands.
3rd place – Raina Belleau, for her work Dignity in Dexterity.
Receiving honorable mentions were: Amber Fletschock, Mark S. Manke, and David Sebberson.
AOP XI will remain up until May 20 in the 1st and 3rd floor galleries, and it’s a perfect opportunity to brush up on the work of our region’s most exciting artists.
Special thanks to Dave “Bulldog” Arntson of Milestones Photography for the photos.
