Biggest little art show - photograph by Sabrina Hornung

“Our whole idea was to make sure that everyone had some kind of exposure to the arts, which in a small town in North Dakota, you don’t always get that, you have to go to Grand Forks or Fargo, where the big cities are. We just went with the idea that people in a small community -- Nelson County -- we consider that a community, really does have an interest just as much as anybody else does.

Tucked in the back of Roberts Street Studio, if you follow the “yellow brick road” (a funny story, if you get the chance to ask her), you are likely to find local artist Mackenzie Kouba working on her next masterpiece.

Born and raised in the Fargo-Moorhead area, Kouba is no stranger to the art scene. She began her arts degree at UND, then continued her studies at NDSU where she graduated with her BFA in the spring of 2011. She has been a dedicated…

Born in Minnesota and having lived in Seattle for most of his life, Tarjei Nossum is somewhat new to the Fargo art scene, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking advantage of all the opportunities the art community provides for local artists.

“When all of these are packed up, it’s like having dysfunctional adolescents that sting and threaten to self destruct when you decide to attack them," Fergus Falls-based artist Kirk Williams said. "It’s awful. It’s hard to do but we’re getting it done,” 

Williams unveiled a table full of fragile, meticulously packed assemblages peeking out from their respective boxes waiting to be dropped off at the Kaddatz Gallery for his upcoming exhibition. As he speaks, I imagine the…
