Unique art exhibit to stop in Little Falls

The Great River Arts Association will present ‘Portraits 2000,’ a unique touring visual art collection on display now and throughout the month of May at the Morrison County Government Center atrium gallery.

Twenty-one regional artists have produced 67 artistic, interesting, sometimes whimsical and often moving photographic portraits of folks from throughout Minnesota’s lake country.

‘Portraits 2000’, sponsored by Lake Country Journal Magazine, is the result of a contest the magazine held inviting artists to enter black and white portraits in three different subject categories including Humorous, Posed and Spontaneous. The show includes the winning pieces in each category, as well as all other entries.

In creating ‘Portraits 2000’, the Lake Country Journal hopes to promote photography and the capturing of the region’s residents—two of the magazine’s biggest interests. Participating photographers are from all over Central Minnesota, and most of their work shows the people of their hometowns. Viewers will see portraits of General John W. Vessy by Dan Johnson of Brainerd, The Story Teller by Faith Swanson of Crosslake, Mike Hanlon by Sara Hanlon of East Gull Lake and Lady Of The Lake by George Byron Griffiths of Edina.

There is no fee to see ‘Portraits 2000’, and the exhibit is open to the public during Government Center hours: Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Government Center Gallery is located at 213 SE 1st Ave. in Little Falls, MN. One can call the Great River Arts Association office at (320) 632-0960 for more information. This exhibit was made possible in part by a grant provided by the Five Wings Arts Council with funds provided through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature.
