Minneapolis Northside Arts Collective presents landscape show


The Heritage Park Center is hosting visual works from around the metro for a show titled Landscape.  Organized by the Northside Arts Collective, the show will run through the beginning of February.

Started in 2003, the collective has over 200 members aiming to enrich the northside community through the arts, but is open to artist from around the metro.  Their focus is creating a network of artists and organizations to help provide opportunities for northside communities to enjoy art.

Since the NAC began using the Heritage Park Center as a gallery two years ago, their shows have become quite popular says Carney, with regular shows occuring every few months.

The upcoming show will be on display at the Senior Services Center in the Heritage Park complex, located at 1015 4th Avenue North, in Minneapolis.

With more than 100 pieces, some as big as eight feet, Landscape will include a wide variety of mediums and styles dedicated to any kind of landscape scene.  Carney will be showing a photographic panorama that’s 100 inches wide.  “Talk about gigabytes of data,” he said about the piece. 

Having a large place for the show has been really helpful, says artist and board member, Pat Carney.  “It’s really attracting a lot of artists from around the metro, all those people who have big pieces [which wouldn’t fit in small galleries] get a chance to show them.”
