Art on the Plains is Plains Art Museum’s signature juried exhibition for contemporary art in the region, presenting a survey of media and styles and identifying emerging and mature talent. Now in its twelfth installment, the exhibition has become an important career builder for young artists and a point of pride among established artists. Juried by Aaron Spangler, a sculptor and printmaker who lives outside of Park Rapids, MN. He is represented by Zeiher Smith & Horton, in New York City, and Gallerie Michael Janssen in Berlin. His work can currently be seen in the collection of the MIA in Minneapolis, MN. This exhibition will serve as a cornerstone of the Museum’s 40th Anniversary celebration.
