2017 RAA Member Exhibit Opening Photos


Special thanks to Roger Boulay for installing the exhibit and to Al Mueller for capturing the Opening Reception for the 2nd Annual RAA Member Exhibit.

With almost twice as many members participating this year, the gallery is a great representation of the talented artists, photographers, potters, and more that our community is proud to call our own. Don’t forget that you can support your local artists by purchasing their work through this gallery exhibit. The full list of participating artists can be found here.

If you missed the opening weekend, please plan to visit any Friday or Saturday between 4pm and 8pm through the end of July. The location is Watkins Gallery on the Winona State University campus.
