In the Gallery Aug 1 – Sept 15, 2018

A unique, fun and interactive graphic arts exhibit


On display is the work of Fargo print maker Troy Becker, St. Cloud painter Adam Spaeth, and painters Avery and Amy Nubson of Moorhead. This show also features interactive painting opportunities along with a display of tattoos and their stories from individuals around the state and beyond.


On Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 12:00 – 3:00pm, the public is invited to enjoy a unique art event: a gallery reception is planned along with a community painting opportunity led by St. Cloud artist, Adam Spaeth.

Adam Spaeth was raised in Minnesota and followed his families footsteps when he joined the Navy. After serving his time honorably, he followed his grandmother and mother’s passion in the arts. Creativity and bright colors are the constants in his artwork. The paintings on display in the gallery are delightfully surprising, combining various animals in odd and unexpected ways.

Troy Becker is a New York Mills native and a graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead. He is an illustrator and cartoonist for Forum Communications and an adjunct professor at MN State University in Moorhead. Troy’s prints on display at the Cultural Center range from cartoon characters to satirical political cartoons. His screen prints are beautifully done in a style that will remind you of comic books and advertising prints in a bright, bold style.

Avery and Amy Nubson are a dynamic artistic team currently living in Moorhead MN. They both graduated with degrees in graphic arts. They are painters, graphic artists and own their own web design business. Their mixed media artwork in the show is Pop Art at its best, featuring Batman of classic comics.
