A unique piece presented upside down, as it was painting by Minnesota native artist, Manila Luzon, on an episode of Ru Paul's Drag Race. This painting was won by our very own social media intern, Tea Renee, recently on a trip to L.A. Come celebrate Pride Month with us by learning more about this special painting and it's special connection to one of our devoted volunteers at the Nemeth Art Center.
This is the last weekend to see the Youth Art Show and cast your vote for the People's Choice Award. Come see what talented young people we have in our region.
Every Thursday-Saturday we have a long table with art supplies set up just for our young visitors! We try to inspire creativity and self-expression based on the works in our exhibits. This month we are creating tapestries like the one in our community gallery done by Chaz Marlin by gluing paper pieces in all shapes and sizes on a colored paper. We are also using color crayons to make our own water and nature scenes like Georgia. Bring your kids over for an afternoon and dive into some art! This project is also free and open to the public at during our gallery hours.

We are thrilled to host our first Artist's Reception and 2nd SAT HAP of the season! Come help us celebrate a new season of art in our community!
kyong juhn is a Korean-American walker, photographer and community advocate residing in Rochester, MN. Walk for Hope & Peace presents juhn's journey from Rochester to Bemidji- 350 miles over 21 days- that paid homage to her mother, who escaped from the North Korean communist regime by walking 323 miles from Pyongyang, North Korea, to Busan, South Korea. During her walk, kyong was joined and supported by many individuals along the way and the Veterans for Peace, Chapter 27, who walked with her for much of the journey. Come hear about this amazing project that opened dialogue about ways to promote peace and gives a voice to the diverse experiences and shared hope for a peaceful future. A recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Scholarship and a graduate of the School of Art Institute of Chicago, juhn has received many awards and grants to carry out her walking projects, which include "A Walk on the Camino de Santiago" in 2016.
Her reception will include a traditional Korean dance performance by Kim Yeon Hwa, who trained in dance at the Korean National Gugak School and is a dancer with the Yeonjeong Korean Traditional Music Center in Daejeon, Korea.
Téa Renee, our featured musician for our first 2nd SAT HAP of the season, will perform a traditional Korean folk song, along with a variety of American folksongs and other genres, many of which incorporate the theme of hope and peace.
