Lanesboro, Minn. – The upcoming exhibit at Lanesboro Arts Center features selections from the ‘2014 Minnesota Biennial’, a juried exhibit of the Minnesota Museum of American Art (MMAA). The exhibit, just finishing up its run at MMAA in St. Paul, now travels to Lanesboro and will showcase work in a variety of media by 17 artists from throughout the state. The exhibit opens at Lanesboro Arts Center on Saturday, August 16 with an artist reception from 6-8 p.m., and runs through Oct. 12, 2014. The reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

Through an open call process aimed at surveying contemporary artistic practice in Minnesota, the Minnesota Museum of American Art (MMAA) curated the juried exhibit, aiming to reflect the diversity of artistic practice in Minnesota. The exhibit opened at MMAA in St. Paul on June 3, honoring artists young and old, emerging and established, urban and rural, and those who work in traditional and unconventional media. Thirty-six artists were selected from a total of 377 applications. Of those 36 artists included in the St. Paul exhibit, 17 artists will be featured in the Lanesboro exhibit: Miranda Brandon, Betsy Byers, Patricia Canelake, Gina Dabrowski, Gregory Euclide, Debra Evans Paige, Selma Fernandez Richter, Glenn Grafelman, Val Jenkins, Dodie Logue, Lisa Nankivil, Jehra Patrick, Howard Quednau, Todd Thyberg, Amy Toscani, Gary Wahl, and Michon Weeks. Media ranges from oil on aluminum, to charcoal on paper, to ink on porcelain, to a mix of wood and plaster and styrene and foam.

The exhibit is presented in partnership with the Minnesota Museum of American Art, sponsored by Inspire(d) Media, and made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Providing year-round arts programming for more than 30 years, Lanesboro Arts Center’s mission is to serve as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages. For more information: www.lanesboroarts.org / 507-467-2446 / info@lanesboroarts.org. Handicapped accessible and free to the public, the exhibition gallery is located at 103 Parkway Ave N. in Lanesboro, Minnesota. Open year-round; gallery hours Memorial Day - Octob .....
