Women's Invitational Exhibition

An exhibition showcasing the creativity of emerging and established women artists in the region.
January 9, 2018 through February 16, 2018

The Taube Museum of Art opens their 2018 Season featuring a Women’s Invitational Exhibition in the Full Gallery. The women in this exhibit range in age and life experiences, as does their art involvement. It was on that basis they were invited to participate, as well as their involvement with the Taube Museum of Art over the years. Some have been involved for over 20 years, like Linda Olson and Judith Greenwood; and others for just a few years, such as Susana Amundarain, Ruth Ganes and Marilyn Niewoehner. There are working and retired art educators, established practicing and emerging artists represented in the exhibition. Collectively their work displays a uniquely feminine perspective in the shared environment of the museum setting.

There are nineteen local and regional women artists included, with a total of 63 works of art, in a diverse range of media. They include the following in alphabetical order:

Rachel Alfaro

My sculptures have developed from a juxtaposition between soft sculpture techniques and complimentary ceramic elements. The works focus on textural aspects of the materials, combining different soft and rough feelings. Viewers are always invited to touch the artwork, as their textures are part of the experience. I use traditional crafting methods, such as weaving, crochet, and basketry to sculpt creatures’ representative of a different world.

Susana Amundaraín

Susana Amundaraín is a Venezuelan-born American artist. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her paintings and mixed media works on paper lie somewhere between abstraction and representation, and her images have been described as poetic and compelling, many times identified as lyrical abstractions. Ms. Amundaraín holds a Master of Fine Arts degree, with emphasis in painting and performance art from the University of Denver in Colorado. She has also been a Visiting Scholar in Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts, in NYU, New York City. She lives and works in Minot, ND.

Carol Fielhaber

Artist, wife, mother, grandmother and lover of souls! My work is a mix of response to feelings, message, and a deep need for purpose. I paint because I love the very act and the excitement of something undiscovered, continually searching concepts, styles and medium. I paint to give myself and others the courage to take ownership of self, to be empowered, to go deep within, and to claim our own space with integrity. I grew up in North Dakota and love this part of our wonderful country more than ever before. I have always been an artist in my heart but now I feel it in my bones! My art journey has just begun as I learn and am changed with every stroke of my brush, charcoal, pen, pencil, or marker.

Amanda Fimreite

Originally from the Minot area, Amanda Fimreite has been an art instructor in Devils Lake for the past few years. In her free time, she enjoys acquiring new techniques and media to expand upon her own knowledge. Her current works are from her study of the Raku firing process. The masks are an extension of a previous body of work that explored how humans build emotional walls or harbor misconceptions of others. The Coral Set, however, reflects a more whimsical side with her fascination of combining light and sculpture.

Ruth Ganes

Ruth Ganes is a professional photographer and retired nurse who specializes in capturing images of wildlife and landscapes across the U.S. and Canada. Originally from Iowa, she currently lives in North Dakota and sells her work to various suppliers in the forms of prints, books, and postcards.

Judith Greenwood

A long time ago, a little girl grew up in Manhattan, Kansas. She began by drawing the wildflowers and trees, hills and valleys. Kansas State University, architecture, then art, was studied for a while. Later came a B.A. in Art Studio from University of Kentucky. In 1985, Judy and husband Larry moved to Minot. She taught Graphic Design, She spent a few years as Editorial Page Editor for the Minot Daily News, at Minot Area Council of the Arts connecting local artists to K-12 classes, and loved helping with some summer classes for kids at the Taube. In 2006, they retired to Alamosa, Colorado. For the gift that allows her to share with others so many kinds of joyful, inspiring images, her heart is filled with love and gratitude.

Sue Huitt

The plants and insects of the prairie and forest continue to inspire Sue to create quilted bowls and small wall quilts. She captures moments in the seasons as they fly by. The patters, textures and colors of batik fabrics and geometric prints build up compositions that seek to stop time.

Wendy Kimble

Wendy Kimble was raised in Minot ND, where she attended Minot High School and Minot State University. While attending Minot State, she received her Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her works for this exhibition are inspired by the ancient Venus figures and the female body form.

Patricia Marquard

Pat is from Minot, ND and is an art educator in the White Shield School District. She has an art and music degree from Minot State University. She is an active watercolor artist who has exhibited frequently in the region.

Roxi Mathis

I like discussing experiences with others, hearing about others’ and sharing my own as well. My current work is a story of my recent adventures with eye surgery. The process of having three eye surgeries in as many months provided me with a lot of inspiration for art. I try to illustrate the crazy light patterns and visual anomalies that plagued me. Some of these weird things evolve and expand into bigger ideas, and the discussion continues.

Chelsey Mickelsen

A spirit is within us…that was my inspiration for these works. They are only small steps of a larger journey and collection of work that I’m creating. In my past, I have been impacted by life events that have filled me with a darkness that I feared I would not be able to escape. Thankfully, I rediscovered my faith and rekindled the light within my spirit. These five canvases on display show how the journey of my faith and readings ignited pieces of me and show my journey to escape the darkness. Soon I will share the rest of my journey as a grow to “Be a light for all to see. Matthew 5:16.”

Kathy Monti

I have been an Artist my whole life. I’ve taken classes in Watercolor, Print Making, Pastels, Acrylics, Graphite, China Painting, Stained Glass, Mosaic, Bead Making, Frit Painting, Glass Painting, Glass Sgraffito and most recently Pate deVerre sans mold. Until 2013, I always had a day job. I started my own glass studio in 2013 Prairie Light Art Glass Studio LLC, and haven’t looked back. I find inspiration for my work everywhere. I love living in the country and have always loved animals and nature. I look forward to working in my studio every day. I also love teaching glass art, and have traveled all over Western and Northern ND giving classes. I sell my work through craft and art shows, retail stores, The Capital Gallery in Bismarck and the Taube Museum of Art Gift Shop. I look forward to learning new things to incorporate in my work.

Janie Myers

I was born and raised in Minot, ND. I have been involved in art for as long as I can remember, always creating. Relatives often show me artworks, that I made for them previously, which they have held on to and cherish. I currently reside in Minot’s ArtSpace, continuing my art career throughout the United States. I hope to retire in either the Southern US, Europe, or some Tropical Island! “My work is not for everybody, but it is for somebody!” ~ J.D. Myers

Marilyn Niewoehner

Through my years of working mainly with textiles, I find color and texture interesting, in and of themselves. Working in a loose style frees the viewer to interpret what they want to see. Color and texture allow a different type of emotion to surface, rather than that of seeing an object.

Linda Olson

“I start with a pattern, a recipe, but I never follow it to the end.” Linda graduated from Minot State University with majors in art, English and psychology, then went on to earn a Master of Arts, in 1987 from the University of Montana and a Master of Fine Arts, from the University of North Dakota in 1990. She has exhibited her works extensively throughout her career; she has work in several public collections, as well as in many private collections. Olson is well known for her rock art documentation, and several of her artworks have been included in publications. Linda Olson has taught at Minot State University since 1990.

Sheila Porreca

I like to create art that shows my love of nature, so I take my brush and see where my imagination takes me with each art piece.

Jill Roloff

After many years away from the camera, I’ve recently been drawn back to it. I do not spend hours in post-production, I want people to experience my unadulterated work. The majority of my photographs involve still life subjects in which I attempt to take a different look at the everyday world around us. One does not always need to travel far to find the beauty and intrigue in what’s already “here”. I hope everyone can appreciate things as I see them.

Diane Engal Stai

Why I create...I don’t remember a time when I didn’t enjoy being creative. That interest lead me to earn a teaching degree in Art and a 42 year career of teaching both Junior High and Senior High Art. ...Manipulating color, line, shape, and contrast have always held my interest. I like going into a project not having all they answers and seeing what presents itself along the way!

Nancy F. Walter

I am originally from Stanley, ND and currently resides in Minot since early 2004. I have been involved in the arts in some manner for over 30 years. I received a certification in Design and Production Art from the Phoenix Institute of Technology in 1985; and was employed as a graphic designer in Arizona before moving back to North Dakota to attend Minot State University. Since receiving my Bachelor of Arts Degree in 2001 in Fine Art and Graphic Design, I have been employed as the Executive Director at the Taube Museum of Art in Minot, ND. I also have my own business creating unique, one of a kind jewelry and paintings.
