The 2016 FMVA Juried exhibition is a showcase of the diverse regional talents that exist in the Fargo/Moorhead area. Each landscape, with its unique history and cultural identity, fosters a creative visions that may overlap or inspire an artist’s contemporaries. The sculptural artworks, paintings, photographs, mixed-media and experimental works that comprise the Juried FMVA exhibition highlight these unique personal visions and interpretations while also allow for the exhibition to be viewed within the context of a much larger place and story. “There is a lot of information about this region- it’s place within the larger context of America and it specific value to the people, ideas and character that make up the FM. While the artwork in this exhibit is an exquisite representation of the talent in this area,” said Gallery Coordinator Anthony Faris, “ it is also a great indicator of the questions artists are posing and that make this place special within the contemporary art experience.”
The exhibition was curated by staff members of the Memorial Union Gallery under the guidance of the Gallery Coordinator.
