The public is invited to stop in and “see the spectacular artwork created by veterans and active-duty military artists and creators,” said Kim Forness Wilson, executive director.
“Have a treat and a look around, get a few gifts, and see all the new things we have planned for 2023,” Wilson said.
The organization also is hosting an “Open Salon” from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, when artists are invited to come and paint, learn new techniques, and make new friends, Wilson said. The salon is free and open to all ages; families are welcome.
At the “Bead Class,” set for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays, participants can learn Native American and contemporary beading from Tammy Nadeau, of Grand Forks, who is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. The class is free and open to adults; children are welcome with an adult helper.
