The paint-and-sip experience has finally hit Fargo-Moorhead. Creatively Uncorked hosts social painting parties at local and private venues.

Owner Shanna Cramer came up with the idea of Creatively Uncorked after seeing a picture on the Internet of a similar event. She knew instantly this was her dream job.

“I have a background in art, I have been painting since I was 12 and I went to school for it,” Cramer said. “I got sidetracked along the way by life and kids, so then I just got…

by Sabrina Hornung | .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) | November 12th, 2014

For a photographer, light can be a best friend or worst enemy. Minnesota State University Moorhead student Austin Marts has been exploring this concept and has been studying how to control and effectively use light or, as Marts says, “use light intentionally.” His first exhibition at the Moorhead Atomic Coffee consists of 10 photographs using both digital prints and darkroom processes.

With this body of work, not only is he exploring light, he is also exploring a few different…

The Plains Art Museum presents “Art Boom: The Tri-College Art Faculty Show”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to notice that the Fargo-Moorhead art scene is booming. Thanks to not only the “Downtown Renaissance,” which involved the revitalization of its structures as well as its cultural points, but also the Tri-College community, which has fostered three incredible art departments. The Plains Art Museum will be host to Fargo-Moorhead’s first ever Tri-College faculty…

Br. Llewellyn Kouba

Last week we explored a bit of the history of Assumption Abbey in Richardton, N.D. We discussed a bit of the history and renovations, and then ended with Abbot Brian Wangler sending me to the Abbey Pottery Studio to meet the Abbey’s resident artist, Brother Llewellyn Kouba.

The studio is located in a space that formerly housed a prep school dormitory. The studio came into being in 1987 with Brother Basil Atwell, OSB as the Abbey’s first potter until he felt the call to be more…

As much as I hate to admit that the passing of Labor Day leads to the passing of summer, I tend to reflect on my own personal highlight reel. I spent the majority of my summer in western North Dakota (in Stark County to be precise) and some of my favorite company was that of the monks at Assumption Abbey in Richardton.

My sweetheart and I decided to check out the abbey one summer day, but opened the door to see the monks at prayer. At the time we thought we would disturb them and made a…
