Fosston, MN – Local artist Heidi Danos currently has multiple pieces on display in the Sorenson Art Gallery at the Fosston Library. Her collection includes many mixed media art pieces, such as acrylic ink, collage and pen. Bonnie Stewart from the Fosston Community Library and Arts Association (FCLAA) spoke about this latest installment at the Sorenson Art Gallery. She provides a brief description of what people may see at the gallery as well as Danos’ history with the media.
The Sorenson Art Gallery typically displays an average of eight artists a year. The installations last about four to six weeks. The gallery is also used as a meeting room, an after school program space and an event rental area. Open six days a week, the gallery is available to the public for viewing and visitation. Stewart shares what was before Danos’ exhibit and what people can expect to see after it.
The gallery is dedicated to Ric and Bernadette Sorenson, two individuals who advocated for the arts. Initially in the basement of the Fosston Library, it was relocated to the ground floor after donations from various supporters. Ric Sorenson is further honored through a permanent donation from Paul Sullivan.
The FCLAA is also preparing for the Daisy Hagen Auction for the Arts. Set for Sunday, November 28th, the auction will begin with a preview at 1 P.M. and start the live and silent portion at 2 P.M. Guest Auctioneer Lynda Lohmeire will assist in auctioning off a variety of holiday ready gifts, such as baked goods, quilts, leather goods, woodworks, and much more.
