The Nemeth Art Center hosted a fundraising dinner titled; "Brother Can you Spare a Dime" November, 18th 2017 at Spike's Speakeasy. Local chefs Amy Thielen (author, Give a Girl and Knife) and Megan Handke (executive chef, Wonewok) made a feast of Moroccan food--savory stuffed pastries, Parisian Couscous Royale, and rosewater-scented beignets, among other things.
Esther Simon's heaviest jar of change donated to the art center won an original piece of art by acclaimed photographer Wayne Gudmundson.
Thank you to all of the flappers, paupers, bootleggers and dandies that attended and to everyone who made this successful event possible!

Nearly 80 individuals came together at Necce's Ristorante in Park Rapids to enjoy a life changing meal by celebrity chef Amy Thielen and to support the artistic programming at the Nemeth Art Center. A massive thank you to all that participated in making this fundraiser an astounding success! Here are some images from the evening captured by Dawn Rossbach and Lowell Wolff:
The Nemeth Art Center held a "Halloween Happening" at Armory Square in Park Rapids on October 31st, 2015. The night was comprised of a family dance party with DJ's ESP Woody McBride & Casey Borchert, along with a musical performance by Marah in the Mainsail. This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Region 2 Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, with additional support from the Park Rapids Downtown Business Association and Chamber of Commerce. Here is a taste of some of the wonderful images of the Happening captured by NAC member Lowell Wolff. I would like to thank everyone who helped to make the Halloween Happening a successful reality!
There have been some esteemed guests to the Nemeth Art Center in the past week! Eike Schmidt & Roberta Bartoli had a chance to walk through the NAC and study some of our paintings. It was an amazing and enlightening experience to get their collective opinions of the NAC's permanent collection. Eike was just named the director of the Uffizi Museum in Florence, Italy. Congrats Eike! http://www.magentaflorence.com/new-uffizi-director-named/
Sending out a huge thank you to the nearly 40+ individuals who supported the Nemeth Art Center's fundraising dinner hosted by Amy Thielen and Aaron Spangler on August 7th, 2015. Opening their home to new and ongoing supporters of the art center, Amy pulled out the best of her culinary talents and provided a meal no one will forget anytime soon. A Spanish themed dinner featured Paella, a traditional tortilla, a garden gazpacho dotted with an eggplant condiment, fresh green beans and a Celery Salad tossed with dates, roasted walnuts and Amy's own dressing. Finishing the meal off was a caramelized creme brûlée desert with a surprise burst of black currant jam.
