MOORHEAD – Brittany Cossette knew the perfect subject for a portrait assignment in one of her photography classes at Minnesota State University Moorhead last fall.
She just didn’t realize at the time that the assignment would get her into an international juried gallery show – or lead to her current relationship with Brian DeMars, the subject of the portrait and a co-worker at Johnny Carino’s restaurant that she got to know better during the 45-minute photo session.
Cossette’s portrait, “Something I Need,” was among the 60 selected out of more than 800 submissions for the recent “Faces” juried show at the Darkroom Gallery in Essex Junction, Vt.
The 23-year-old native of Barnesville, Minn., took a “roundabout” path to finding photography that started with her high school hopes of pursuing a career in fashion design.
As she neared high school graduation in 2009, Cossette said she wasn’t ready to move to Los Angeles or New York to try to find a break in the competitive industry. Instead, she enrolled at North Dakota State University, taking a year of general courses with the idea that she could start fashion design classes there. Read the rest of this entry →

As she packed her bags and drove to Chicago, Theresa Boyle was far from certain she had made the right decision.
The senior graphic design and music industry major had an internship at Bass/Schuler Entertainment in Chicago this past summer, which turned out to be an experience of a lifetime. The company is a college-booking agency, which means they work with schools to plan entertainment events, such as comedians, bands and more. Read the rest of this entry →

It’s a true story that reads like fiction – and it’s one that should raise the spirits of any aspiring author. Elise Parsley, a 27-year-old piano teacher in Plymouth, Minn., leapt from being an unpublished, agentless author-illustrator to one with both an agent and a book contract in three days.
The quick-fire timeline went like this: Parsley sent Steven Malk at Writers House an e-mail query on Tuesday, November 19; he signed her on as a client on Wednesday, and on Thursday submitted her picture book, If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don’t!, to multiple publishers. Connie Hsu at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers made a pre-empt offer on Friday, which Malk and Parsley accepted that evening. The book is scheduled for fall 2015 publication.
The ecce gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by local talent, Andrew Stark, professor in the Department of Art & Design at MSUM. The artist’s style draws broadly from the history of painting, with strong connections being made from the renaissance, Rubens, as well as contemporary influences such as Gerhard Richter. Andrew’s recent large-scale work contains dense compositions that achieve both a richness and an electricity. The collection conveys elements of old master figure painting, and seeks to create and explore interactions between figure painting and abstract mark-making. Read the rest of this entry →
