Local Artist Jon Crane Opening Event and Unveiling of Red River Masters Exhibition
October 24 @ 5:00 pmIncluded with Museum Admission
The new exhibit Red River Masters will display the work of several local artists who laid the foundation of the Fargo-Moorhead regional art scene. This exhibit will not be a complete history of local art – too many people are left out and the subject is too big – but it will highlight some of our region’s best loved past masters as well as introduce our visitors to some of our favorite artists who are mostly unknown. The exhibit will draw from the Rourke’s fantastic collection of local artwork and the historic collection of HCS, and we will borrow a few things from the walls of our society’s members. We will begin with artists working when we were the wild frontier and continue through the artists who strengthened the Concordia and Moorhead State art departments and established our community’s galleries in the 1960s.
