In the Gallery
Photography by Jamie Robertson
Free to See & Open to All
Now through May 22, 2021
Artist Reception Friday, May 7
The New York Mills Regional Cultural Center is featuring in its gallery the photographs of Jamie Robertson of Wadena, MN from April 21 through May 22, 2021.
“Leaf River Inscapes: views from the Minnesota interior” is a series of photographs that find the beauty in an ordinary place and create a link between the artist and the natural world in rural Minnesota. In his artist statement, Robertson says,
“These images aren’t a documentary or objective reflection of the region. On a very basic level they provide evidence that I have lived here. They are my personal interpretations of my relationship to this place and they are grounded in this place. I want the photographs to encourage reflection, memory, and vision in everyone who sees them in a gallery, online, or on a wall in their own home. I hope they provide a means for each of us to engage in a process of creative work, building our own personal sense of place.”
A reception and artist talk will be held Friday May 7, 2021 from 4-6pm. Refreshments will be served. All are invited and welcome to attend. All COVID precautions will be followed; please wear a mask, maintain physical distance, wash your hands and if you are ill, please stay home.
This activity is made possible, in part, by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
This show is free to see and open to the public. Gallery and Gift Shop Hours are Wednesdays and Thursdays 10-7, Fridays 10-5 and Saturdays 10-3. Private viewing and tours can be arranged by contacting Cheryl Bannes at the Cultural Center at 218-385-3339 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
