|Third Street Gallery hosts exhibition, reception for Fargo artist|
Third Street Gallery, 28 S. Third St., a non-profit arts space dedicated to providing arts opportunities to artists and the community, will host a free public exhibition opening reception Thursday, Aug. 31, from 7 to 9 p.m. for painter and illustrator Donald Renner. Members of the Third Street Gallery are invited to preview the exhibition and hear from Renner as he discusses his work in an artist talk at 6 p.m., prior to the public reception. Memberships can be purchased at the door for those interested in the artist talk.
Renner recently moved to Fargo after completing his bachelor of fine arts from UND. This exhibition is a combination of previous and new work, created using watercolor washes, followed by controlled burning and ink drawing.
The exhibition is curated by Rebecca Sefcovic Uglem and Amy Lyste, directors of the Third Street Gallery. Those wishing group tours, including schools, should call (701) 775-5055. There is no admission charge but a $2 donation is suggested for adults and change from children.
