While the Plains Art Museum’s primary exhibit “Individual to Icon” (running though Aug. 15, 2010) utilizes space in the William and Anna Jane Schlossman Gallery and Jane L. Stern Gallery, smaller exhibits shine though the ArtView program.

The Plains’ ArtView program uses additional gallery space and public space (such as hallways and Café Muse) to showcase the work of local and regional artists.

Now through May 30, Fargo artist Modern Man’s exhibit “Andy, You Used Me” is on display in the Xcel Energy gallery. According to the Plains website, Modern Man has been working on art projects in the F-M area for over 30 years.

According to the website: “‘Andy, You Used Me’ is a portrait series of both Andy Warhol and Marilyn Monroe, who was one of Andy’s favored portraiture topics… Modern utilized glow-in-the-dark paint and screen printing ink to create striking portraits of Andy in daylight that turn into an equally stunning portrait of Marilyn with the lights out.”

Another ArtView exhibit, on display in Café Muse (on the first floor of the Plains), features select paintings by Carmen Bruhn. “Faces: Recent Work by Carmen Bruhn” runs through June 6. In conjunction with the exhibit, the Plains presents a watercolor “related art experience.” A watercolor studio class taught by Bruhn held April 8-May 6 will give participants a “chance to hone their watercolor skills,” according to the Plains website. According to the site, participants can “[embrace] different levels of realism and abstraction and emphasis on color and design.” Visit the registration page for pricing and additional information.
