Americas 2020: All Media
The Northwest Arts Center opens the Fall Semester at Minot State University with the “Americas 2020: All Media“ annual juried exhibition. The exhibition is on view August 21 to October 2 in the Walter Piehl Gallery.
From its first call for entries in 1995, each year the All Media competition has brought diverse artwork in all mediums, traditional and experimental, to our community. This year’s exhibition features 41 artworks from artists across the United States.
We are honored to have ceramicist Guillermo Guardia as the juror for the Americas 2020: All Media exhibition. Living and working in St. Paul, Minnesota. Guardia creates figurative sculptures and pottery, integrating pattern and form, which are influenced by art history, his upbringing in Peru, Catholicism, his transition to living in the United States, and political events.
A limited public reception is scheduled Thursday, Sept 10 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Both exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Please see the reception event or NAC website for more details. Masks and social distancing are required.
Guardia will also be presenting in the Art Seminar series on Friday, September 11 at 12 noon in Aleshire Theatre, Hartnett Hall.
The Arts Center is open on adjusted hours this fall, Tuesday through Saturday, 1-5 p.m. and by special arrangement. It is closed holidays. The Walter Piehl Gallery is located in the Northwest Arts Center on the lower level of the Gordon B. Olson Library, with its own entrance on the south side of the library.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
