Upcoming Events

This Week Only/Benefit Dinner 2019


Intake | January 19th - January 22nd 

Exhibition | January 27th - February 2nd 

Benefit Dinner | February 2nd  


This Week Only is the Museum’s most popular exhibition from our own region. Imagine a panoply of art from the Red River Valley and surrounding plains and woodlands; walls covered with works springing from our own place to brighten our lives in the dead of winter.

This is the third This Week Only exhibition, the only non-curated show in the Museum's schedule. Last year we changed the dates and closed on the day of the Annual Benefit Dinner. Remember, don’t submit works of art you entered in either of the two earlier exhibitions as the public will remember.

Last year people poured in and lingered over a hundred works on paper, paintings, sculptures, photographs, crafts, and multi-media everything. The opening brought a nice and eager crowd, raising over $72,000. Again this year, if one wishes to buy at the opening or in advance of the Dinner, a 20% premium will be added to the sale price.
