Gifted and Guided: 2011/12 WARM Mentor Program Exhibition



As many of you might know, I have been participating in WARM's (Women's Art Resources of Minnesota) two-year Mentor Program. Emerging artists, like myself, are paired with a more experienced artist. The protege and mentor meet monthly during the course of the two-year program. The mentor serves as a role model and guide, offering insight and feedback in a supportive framework.

The program is coming to an end at the end of the year and a final exhibition of protegee and mentor artwork will open October 6th, with an opening reception on October 13th from 6-9 pm. This exhibition is the culmination of the mentoring relationship and the art produced during this two-year journey. Thirty-two artists are participating in the exhibit, 10 mentors, 18 protégée, and 4 Program leaders. All forms of visual art will be represented: paintings, photographs, works on paper, mixed media, installations, and sculptures. 

The exhibit is being held at the GrainBelt Bottling House--a huge space that will accomodate a large variety of work. I will have three larger paintings in this exhibit. Besides the opening reception, the exhibit can be viewed during normal business hours during the week (9 am-5 pm), as well as the following dates--
