Xcel Energy Gallery

Each year, Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists (FMVA) presents the Studio Crawl, a popular, free event that gives the community access to professional artists’ studios. The Studio Crawl is an opportunity for people to meet artists, see demonstrations, and purchase their work. As a collaboration between the Museum and FMVA, the Museum is proud to announce a preview exhibition, containing artwork from participating artists displayed a month prior to the studio crawl weekend. This year’s Studio Crawl will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 6-7, and will feature 38 studios. Including Hannaher’s, Inc. Print Studio inside Plains Art Museum.

The Museum would like to thank the Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists for their partnership. FMVA promotes and supports the visual arts through exhibition opportunities, artist talks, professional development workshops, networking seminars, critiques, and the annual Studio Crawl.
