Making History Closing Reception

Friday | July 16 | 4:00-6:00pm
Winona County History Center | 160 Johnson Street

Making History the River Arts Alliance Member Exhibit & Showcase opened May 1, 2021 in the new Slaggie Family Lobby Gallery in the Winona County History Center. COVID-19 restrictions in May prevented a “grand” opening to the new gallery space and exhibit, but there will be a “grand” closing reception on Friday, July 16 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Please join RAA and the Winona County Historical Society for this launch of their partnership bringing art to the community. Feel the beauty of art displayed in the new gallery, meet the artists and make your selection from pieces that are for sale. Hors d’oeuvres provided, and a cash bar will be available for refreshments.

Next up is Wild Knowing featuring the work of fiber artist Anita Jain. An opening reception will be Friday July 23, 4 – 6 p.m. and the exhibition will run July 23 – August 29. Anita was born in Finland and now lives in Maple Grove, Minnesota. Finnish folklore and nature inspire her art. Her work has been shown at the American Swedish Institute, Perpich Center for Arts, Nordic Center, Duluth, MN, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Textile Museum of Finland, Kortteli Museum of Kuopio, Finland, and Art Factory of Porvoo, Finland.
