Northwest Art Center presents 'Absolute Dots' Paintings and Prints by Ewa Tarsia (Harnett Hall Gallery, MSU)
Dots and doodles have inspired the art on exhibit at the Northwest Art Center galleries in November.

Public reception for the two exhibits will be Tuesday, November 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the galleries.

The Polish born Tarsia, known internationally as a printmaker, will exhibit both monoprints and relief paintings. Acknowledging that printing plates are the printer's 'true objects of affection,' Tarsia incorporates pieces of her metal and plastic printing plates in her relief paintings. Covered with marks, lines, and subtle traces of color, the printing plates are often as interesting as the images pulled from them. Unifying all the images is the omnipresent (or 'absolute') dot repeated by the thousands contrasting its smooth geometry with the sharp angularity of the fractured plates.

Exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

Hartnett Hall Gallery is located on the Minot State University Campus along 11th Avenue Northwest. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and by special appointment. Campus parking lots are unrestricted after 4 p.m.

For more information please call 858-3246.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Thursday 11/5/2009 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Prairie Quilt Guild Meeting (Vincent United Methodist Church, 1024 2nd St SE, Minot)

Friday 11/6/2009 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM MSU Music Division presents Percussion Workshop (MSU campus)
The Magi Drum Line and Minot State University Music Division will co-sponsor a Percussion Workshop for area music students. The event is open to percussion students grades 7-12 and their teachers, and will be held in conjunction with MSU’s annual Northwest International Festival of Music.

The workshop will begin at 9:30 a.m. with a drum circle in the atrium of the Gordon B. Olson Library. The drum circle is open to all workshop participants as well as interested campus and community people.

“The librarians are being very adventurous in letting us use their space,” said Avis Veikley, MSU Percussion Instructor. “You usually associate libraries with ‘quiet,’ which is definitely not a word that comes to mind with drumming. It should be a fun beginning for our event.”

Clinicians for the workshop are Veikley and Dr. Jason Kihle, Assistant Professor of Percussion and Assistant Director of Bands at Texas A&M University - Kingsville. They will be assisted by the MSU Percussion Ensemble and the Magi Drum Line, an extracurricular organization of middle school and high school students from the Minot area.

Morning and afternoon workshop sessions will cover hand drumming and ethnic rhythms; trap set; keyboard percussion instruments; and drum-line-style marching percussion. At the conclusion of the workshop, particpants will join students from the Northwest Festival to attend a concert by MSU Music Division ensembles at 3:30 p.m. in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall.

The goal of the project is “to instruct, encourage and inspire young percussion players,” said Veikley. “Our end goal is to improve percussion playing in school music programs.”

Percussion students need not audition nor be selected for the Northwest Festival to attend the percussion workshop. A $10 per student participation fee will be charged for students who are not taking part in the Northwest Festival.

This program is funded in part by a Special Projects Grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support was provided by SRT, Jacobsen Music, Sunnyside School DrumKidz, and Innovative Percussion.

For more information contact Avis Veikley at 701-858-3264.

Tuesday 11/17/2009 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM International Artists Series presents Daniel Rodriguez in concert (Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, MSU campus)
Former New York City police officer, Daniel Rodriguez has experienced a meteoric rise to fame. He was one of his department's designated anthem singers on September 11, 2001, when fate intervened -- he rendered a capella performances of "God Bless America" and the National Anthem that proved far greater than a patriotic gesture. Ringing, heartfelt and beautiful, his performance stirred the hearts of the entire nation.

Daniel Rodriguez is the 2nd concert in the series. Tickets: $50/Adult, $25/Student, $125/Family for series of 5 concerts.

For more information, contact 701-858-0863 or 852-2787.

Northwest Art Center presents 'Cartoodles' by Bill Nybo (Gordon B Olson Library Gallery, MSU)
Dots and doodles have inspired the art on exhibit at the Northwest Art Center galleries in November.

Public reception for the two exhibits will be Tuesday, November 17 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the galleries.

For Bill Nybo, a life-long preoccupation with doodling evolved into an art form. His colorful drawings, executed with prismacolor markers, are abstract, whimsical, and very cartoon-like, hence the name 'cartoodles.' Nybo has recently developed a coloring book of his drawings and hopes that the book inspires youngsters of all ages to explore their creativity.

The exhibit and the reception are free and open to the public.

The Gordon B. Olson Library Gallery is located on the Minot State University Campus along 11th Avenue Northwest. The Library Gallery is open regular library hours. Campus parking lots are unrestricted after 4 p.m.

For more information please call 858-3246.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Monday 11/30/2009 7:00 PM Lecture: 'Mexican Migrant Workers in North Dakota' by Dr. Jim Norris (Aleshire Theater, MSU)
Dr. Jim Norris, professor of history at North Dakota State University, will examine the experience of Mexican migrant workers in North Dakota.

The introduction of the sugar beet industry on the Northern Plains after World War I created a demand for migrant workers to cultivate this new crop, Norris explains in a summary of his talk. The work was arduous, requiring long days in sometimes adverse conditions.

Most of the workers brought to North Dakota by the sugar industry were Mexican people who lived in south Texas. Mexican workers also harvested North Dakota potatoes and shocked wheat. Norris’s presentation will examine a number of topics concerning these workers—why they chose to come to North Dakota, why they kept coming back, and why some chose to make the state their permanent home.

Professor Norris received his PhD from Tulane University with a specialty in Mexican history. He came to NDSU in 1997 and soon became interested in the history of the Mexican-American population of North Dakota and Minnesota. He has written several articles on the history of Mexican migrant workers in the region, and the Minnesota Historical Society Press earlier this year published his book, North for the Harvest: Mexican Workers, Growers, and the Sugar Beet Industry.

The presentation is one of a series of free public lectures sponsored during the school year by the Northwest Art Center. An informal reception will follow the program. Parking in campus lots is unrestricted after 4 p.m.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
