  1. Lifelong Friends Exhibit

    205 3rd Ave W
    Alexandria, MN 56308
    Call: 320-759-1114

    "Lifelong Friends" exhibits the artwork of Ann Lauritzen Pape of Omaha, NE, and Lee Webster Shaw of Los Angeles, CA. These women are, indeed, lifelong friends, having spent many summers together on Lake Miltona north of Alexandria. Ann has studied under various teachers at the Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona, and exhibited her oil paintings at the Museum of Nebraska Art. Her real joy is in painting en plein air, particularly scenes around the Alexandria, MN area. Lee has shown her watercolors for several years at the Schomburg Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, but also in cities across the US and in Germany.

  2. Maximilian-Bodmer Expedition and Artist Exhibit Opening

    205 3rd Ave W
    Alexandria, MN 56308
    Call: 320-759-1114

    In 1832, German explorer and naturalist Prince Maximilian of Wied and Swiss artist Karl Bodmer embarked on a two-year journey that took them up the Missouri River. They documented the landscape, natural history, and people of the High Plains. Bodmer captured a challenging and dramatic landscape that was still unfamiliar to people in the Eastern United States and Europe. Visitors will see portraits, remarkable for their careful detail and sensitivity to the personalities of the sitters, that are among the first accurate portrayals of Western Indians in their homelands. To this day, Bodmer's work remains one of the most perceptive and compelling visual accounts of the American interior and a foundation of our memory and understanding of the nineteenth-century West. A mobile tour highlights 20 of the 40 artworks in the collection.
