Fargo Exhibits:

Feb 13-Mar 8 - Kelly Thompson. New Paintings. Rec: Feb 13, 6-8pm, ecce gallery

Thru Feb 22 - Tim Ray: Unseen Prints, Drawings & Collage (216 Broadway gallery). In terms of selecting the pieces, each show takes on an individual identity. Taking work from different time periods and movements creates a more recognizable narrative. This collection has a range of work from 1969 to 2008. Its goal is to create parallels between Ray’s drawings and how they relate to the acrylic collages. - Tessa Beck Got to the full article here:, ecce gallery

Thru Feb 22 - Hybrid Vigor, An Installation by Stephen Alexander Wischer. Stephen Alexander Wischer, an associate professor of Architecture at NDSU, energizes the Museum’s Atrium with an intriguing site-specific installation from his ongoing body of work, Hybrid Vigor. Constructed with ordinary yellow-page phonebooks, these displays include thousands of books Wischer transforms through cutting, tearing, burning, and dipping into solutions, which he stacks and anchors to create the illusion of a massive wall. This work contrasts the monumental scale of the combined books with the transitory nature of their contents. The Ruth and Seymour Landfield Atrium, General Exhibition.

Now full-time artists, Chwast and Sieling are highly prolific and exhibit their work regularly in solo and group shows nationally and internationally. VIVID focuses primarily on the artists’ paintings, drawings, and sculpture.

The North Dakota Mural. The landscape in North Dakota is the sky—the stars at night, the clouds in the daytime. At night I thought about the stars and light-years and the speed of light and everything that was sort of inexplicable.— James Rosenquist. Serkland Law Firm Gallery, Landfield Atrium, General Exhibition

Creative Actions: Selections from the Permanent Collection. Plains Art Museum is thrilled to unveil a re-imagined Permanent Collection show, which focuses on and engages with the ideas and creative actions of artists.

International Harvester Photographs. The exhibited photographs lead viewers through the progression of the building from its time-worn state when it was acquired in 1994 to its current condition. The exhibit features photographs of the building as the International Harverster warehouse, during renovation, and as Plains Art Museum. The building now combines elements of the original warehouse and a modern museum. Main Floor South Hallway, General Exhibition

Island Park Ramp Installation – MARIA FRIBERG: ATLANTER. Maria Friberg allegorizes the conventions and conditions surrounding masculinity and its multiple relationships to the myth of power. Friberg’s leitmotiv is the male image and the modern business suit. Her art uses video and photography to capture the nuances of masculine performance and to express the often-elusive vagaries of social conditioning. Her method is subtle, her messages poetic. Friberg’s work opens our awareness to the many possibilities of representing masculinity. Island Park Ramp, General Exhibition
