Spring Show

The road to Cohasset for the 2023 Artists of Minnesota Spring Show is complete!

The 2023 Spring show was a great success!
The venue at Sugar Lake Lodge right on the lake was stunning and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating with our busy schedule of events throughout the weekend – demonstrations, field trip to the Judy Garland Museum, group painting activity (29 paintings!) donated to KOOTASCA Community Action, a nonprofit helping individuals, families and communities fight the multiple causes and challenges of poverty, and wonderful Awards Banquet.
Our demo artists Mary Beth Downs (watercolor/mixed media) and Lea Friesen (watercolor) were stellar. Tom Page did an outstanding job as our Exhibit Judge and demonstrated portraiture painting in oil with a live model our last day. We left the weekend inspired and learned many new things as well as met new artists from around the state and reacquainted and connected with others we look forward to seeing each year.

A big thank you to our Conference Coordinator Sue Brown Chapin and her husband Greg, Conference/Show Co-chairs Margie Helstrom and Sue Rauschenfels, Lily Atwel our President and to all the fantastic volunteers who assisted with many tasks making our annual Spring Show a big success.
