For several weeks each spring, the art of participating FMVA members fills the lower level gallery at Moorhead’s Hjemkomst Center—work from arts educators, emerging artists and established artists. Statements from the artists describe their inspirations and techniques, the opening reception offers the public an opportunity to meet and talk with the artists. Participants are members of FMVA each submitting one piece of artwork for the show. This is traditionally FMVA’s largest show with more than 60 members participating. This show is proudly hosted by the Historical Cultural Society of Clay County.
The FMVA is a volunteer organization of nearly 200 visual artists and art supporters. The group promotes and encourages artists and the visual arts in the Fargo-Moorhead area through group art exhibitions, social events, guest artist talks and artist critiques.
