Touché Gallerie hosts Mid-Winter Interlude through this Friday

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Feb. 1, 2010) — Faculty and staff at Bemidji State University have contributed to a Mid-Winter Interlude exhibition now showing in the University’s Touché Gallerie.

The show, “A Celebration of the Talents of the BSU Staff and Faculty,” opened Monday, Jan. 25 and runs through Friday, Feb. 5. It features the work of several members of BSU faculty in the field of visual art. The pieces range from practical to aesthetic in an eclectic mix of photography, painting, sculpture and domestic craft.

Perhaps unintentionally, the theme of the exhibit was warmth. The combination of summer and spring themes, the use of cloth and wood and the prevalence of warm colors created a hiatus from the recent dip of the mercury, a theme to be expected from northern Minnesota artists in the dead of winter.

Located in the upper Hobson Memorial Union on the Bemidji State campus, the Touché Gallerie is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The gallery is open at no charge to the public.

For more information about the Touché Gallerie or any of the galleries on the BSU campus, contact the visual arts department at (218) 755-4406.
