The North Dakota Art Gallery Association (NDAGA) and the North Dakota Council on the Arts (NDCA), with support from Starion Bank, organized two exhibits to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the North Dakota Council on the Arts. The exhibits display the artwork of 50 North Dakota artists, including MSUM professor Brad Bachmeier’s signature ceramic vessels, as well as the work of the exhibit curator. One of these exhibits is displayed in the Heritage Center, and the other is a touring exhibit that will travel the state during this anniversary year. 

A catalog highlighting the works in both exhibits will be available to purchase for $10 through NDAGA’s office. A PDF file is also available online at  http://www.nd.gov/arts/sites/default/files/PDFs/art50catalogweb.pdf.

The Heritage Center exhibit will be displayed from Oct. 28, 2016 through April 30, 2017; and the touring exhibit will be displayed from October 2016 through December 2018, please visit http://www.ndaga.org for more information.

Art lovers are encouraged to let others know how much they appreciate the role the arts can and do play in North Dakota’s wellbeing, community pride, tourism and economic development.
