Upcoming Events

October 2, 2020
Gallery North First Friday Open House
310 4th Street NW
2:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Gallery North will host a First Friday Open House reception on October 2nd for Showcase Artists Phanessa Frick and Jake Dennis. Phanessa started creating signs and clothing items as a way to pass the cold winter months indoors. This has become a new craft challenge being able to see what all can be created, and has really been a joy helping custom create items for people. Jake Dennis enjoys collecting and finding rocks, he started his life in rocks young. Jake really enjoyed hunting fossils with his father and really enjoys finding new rocks every day from all over the United States and other countries. Jake has moved on to cutting and shaping stones for jewelry.

Gallery North is having an Artist Supply Jumble Sale in mid-October and we are inviting you to donate gently used materials such as paints, brushes, beads, stained glass, frames, needlework supplies and any other art-related materials that you no longer need or want. We are using this as a fundraiser to help us get through this challenging time. More details later but we are accepting donations from now until October 10th. Bring it on and please share with your friends

About Gallery North

Gallery North, a non-profit cooperative art gallery under the sponsorship of the Northern Artist Association, gives members a place to display and sell work, encourages growth, builds confidence and provides public exposure for art, while emphasizing variety and individuality.

It is dedicated to assisting emerging and established artists, promoting art, and benefiting the Bemidji area, the downtown business district, and the tourism industry.

Artists can find a support system through their interaction with other members and the Bemidji area community. Emerging artists can learn from other artists and can gain experience by exhibiting their work.

Gallery North’s new location is 310 4th Street NW, Bemidji, MN. We are excited to be in our new space, with store frontage and closer to other downtown businesses.

CURRENT BUSINESS HOURS are Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 – 5:00 pm. On the first Friday of every month, from 2 to 6 p.m., the public is invited to observe demonstrations featuring one of the Gallery’s artists as well as visit with one of the community showcase artists or authors. The Gallery also contains a library/resource room, a showcase artist display area, and a classroom space for workshops and special events.

Members’ work is also displayed at various places throughout Bemidji: The Beltrami County History Center, Riverwood Bank, Sanford Walk-In Clinic, Bemidji Community Art Center, Kitchigami Library Art Wall, and at the Dunn Brothers Coffee, Wild Hare Bistro, The Cabin, Tutto Bene, and The Fleur de Lis Gallery.

In 1972, a dozen artists or so decided to join together in ‘…the promotion of art, art interest and art activities among the people of Bemidji and the surrounding area.’ Their ideas gave rise to the Northern Artist Association. Their goals then and now continue to be ‘…to seek places to display the art work of area members, … and to sponsor art education through speakers, demonstrations and exhibits.’ From that small group of twelve artists, membership has now grown to forty-four. To this day, the Northern Artist Association continues to hold weekly painting sessions and monthly special programs to which the public is always invited.
