A collection of works from North Dakota artists to celebrate ND Council on the Arts 50th Anniversary!
May 2, 2017 - June 2, 2017

The Taube Museum of Art Main Gallery is featuring Art 50! exhibition celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the North Dakota Council on the Arts. Art 50! is the traveling portion of this two part exhibit. The traveling exhibit features “50 artists for fifty years – each artist a testament to growth of the arts in North Dakota, a snapshot of the present and a hope for the arts in the future of our state. Artists emerging, as well as seasoned, take their place in the history of this great state, and their fine art works showcase the diversity among them and the connection they have to North Dakota.” According to Linda Olson of the North Dakota Art Gallery Association and the curator of the exhibit, both 2-D and 3-D works by artists from all four corners of the state are on display through June 2, 2017. Just a few of the artists included in the exhibit are: Susana, Amundarain (Minot), Bradley J. Bachmeier (Fargo), Bennett Brien (Belcourt), Kaye Burian (Manning), Dean Colin Fay (Gackle), Cris Fulton (Bowman), Pat Gerlach (Wing), Guillermo Guardia (Grand Forks), Sabrina Hornung (Jamestown), Brian Hushagen (Bismarck), Anna Jacobson (Wales), Terry Jelsing (Rugby), Ali La Rock (Bismarck), Nelda Schrupp (Lakota), and Linda Whitney (Valley City).

 


 

Lower Gallery

Tedium

by Lindsay Arnold
May 2, 2017 - June 2, 2017

The Lower Gallery features Canadian Artist Lindsay Arnold’s exhibition ‘Tedium’ through June 2nd. ‘Tedium’ is a series of detailed drawings of hand-made doilies exploring feminine identity. Through the doily, Arnold investigates the issues of aging and perfection and its role in the feminine identity and value. Using ink, watercolour and pencil crayon, Arnold renders her doilies in various sizes and degrees of disrepair. The end result is a Trompe L’oeil that uses the strokes of her pen to imitate the crocheted knots, loops, and chains of the original.
Arnold is intrigued by issues of feminine identity, the myth of perfection, and perceived expectations of self. As a wife and mother she finds herself inundated with messages about what she should aspire to have, such as: the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect ageless face. Her work is a response to those behaviours and compulsions related to striving for and maintaining a faultless appearance. Arnold says, “I use drawing and mixed media to explore self-administered repression, intrasexual enforcement, and the creation of identities through material objects and artifice.”



 A public reception will be held on Thursday, June 1 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Free and open to the public. Museum and Gift Shop hours: Tues – Fri 10:30 – 5:30 pm, Sat 11:00 am – 4:00 pm or by special appointment. There is no charge for admission, but contributions are accepted to help the Taube Museum fulfill their mission of enriching lives through the visual arts.

These exhibitions are made possible with support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
