The School of the Arts at St. Cloud State University presents North of North, an exhibition collectively curated by nine selected upper-level art majors. The exhibition will feature artwork covering a diverse range of media by Luke Aleckson, Allen Brewer, Sarah Burns, Kate Casanova, Daniel Dean, Andy Ducett, Ben Moren, and Oakley Tapola and will take place at the Gallery Vaultin downtown St. Cloud.
North of North seeks to expand the Twin Cities art community by introducing St. Cloud to the conversation through curatorial intentions that focus on authentic artist personalities and their intimate connections to their work. This exhibition, fully conceived and executed by the students, seeks to bring together Minnesota-based artists at various stages of their careers, and who work in a diverse array of practices, to initiate a discourse that explores the relationship between materials and the authentic reveal of illusionary techniques. Though different in intention and execution, each artist’s work shares a similar articulation of the act of ‘making.’ The exhibition opens on April 24th with a reception from 6-9 P.M.Refreshments will be provided.
The Gallery Vault is open to the public Friday to Sunday, 3pm to 7pm.
This project was made possible by a generous Action Grant from the Office of the Provost at St. Cloud State Univeristy.
