Sept. 24: UND Art Collections opening features artist Jackie McElroy-Edwards

A UND Arts Collections opening, Land Escape: A Collection of Works on Paper by Jackie McElroy-Edwards, will be held at the Empire Arts Center, 415 DeMers Ave, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24.

The exhibit features several works by artist, author, and retired professor and chair of the UND Department of Art & Design, Jackie McElroy-Edwards. McElroy-Edwards’ creative exploration of the North Dakota landscape offers the viewer a chance to both appreciate the beauty of the region while simultaneously escaping realism through her often surreal representation of the land, sky, and objects depicted in her work.

The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Exhibit dates: Sept. 24 – Jan. 11.
