Region 2 Arts Council has been immersed in the creative, generative energy of the Rail River Folk School for two full years, and for that, we are extremely grateful.
This week, we’ll be moving to our new home in the Watermark Art Center, 505 Bemidji Avenue North. These are exciting transitional times, indeed!
Watermark Art Center is celebrating their Grand Opening & Community Dedication on
December 2 at 505 Bemidji Ave N. The public is invited to tour the new facility and view the inaugural exhibits from 1-4 p.m. At 2 p.m. there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring hand-drum singing by Waabinoo Bines and drum songs by Battle River Singers, plus remarks from art center officials and guests.
During the grand opening, all four galleries will feature exhibits, including Fresh and Faded Memories: Paintings by Marley Kaul, Aazhoomon Indigenous Art Exhibition, and a mixed media collage display by Terry Garrett. The Bemidji State University Gallery will show a range of modern and traditional print and ceramic pieces from their Harlow and Kleven collections in an exhibit titled A Lasting Gift.

The Region 2 Arts Council office will be open for tours during Watermark’s grand opening on Saturday. We hope you will stop by during the festivities to say hi and become acquainted with our new space.
