Local Artist Juried into National Exhibition


Fri, Jun 28th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro’s David Tacke is one of 50 artists who have had 69 pieces juried into the national Horizontal Grandeur at the Stevens County Historical Society in Morris, Minnesota. In its sixth year, Horizontal Grandeur was named after Minnesota’s Bill Holm’s essay of the same name. Bill Holm’s love of the prairie was well known through his speaking engagements as his writings.

This rural Minnesota historical society received permission to promote their national art exhibition through distribution of his essay and use of the title from Holm when it first began hosting the exhibit, in 2006. According to Tina Didreckson, coordinator of this national exhibit, all genres and mediums are encouraged. “Our call guidelines are intentionally vague,” said Didreckson. “North American prairies, whether tall, short, mixed or coastal are all different, and the artists and people who live on the prairies see more than large skies and expanses of grassland. Bill Holm’s essay encourages all of us to look at our landscape with a ‘prairie eye.’ We are honored to be able to continue his legacy of encouraging everyone to look at the horizontal grandeur of our world, instead of the vertical.”

The only eligibility requirements are that artists must live in a state that has a prairie, the piece must be original to the artist and an interpretation of their prairie. Fifty prairie state artists, and 69 pieces will be showcased at this year’s show which runs until October 13, 2013. Many of the artists will attend the 6:30pm opening reception, on July 11 making it an excellent place to talk to the artists about their personal statements of their work.

Tacke says about his work “I am always interested in making a photograph. Ideally I am walking or hiking, every day, aware of light, forms and actions of nature, including people. At some level the unfolding of a flower is as energetic as lava pouring from a seam in the earth or thunderheads billowing high into frigid upper reaches. Light, shadow, atmosphere are all in constant flux. I am always exploring ways to develop technique, aesthetics, and conscious and unconscious interaction, in order to see and faithfully record and depict aspects of that flux in interesting, revealing ways.”

The majority of the pieces in the exhibition are for sale. Print catalogs are available from the Society or the work can be viewed for free on the Society’s Horizontal Gr .....
