Revland Gallery Wraps Up ST(ART) Project With Art Auction
Most of you have probably seen the colorful paintings that graced Revland Gallery’s exterior since last October. Local student artists created the paintings as part of the gallery’s ST(ART) Project, and now that the gallery is moving from its current location at the former Goodyear building in downtown Fargo, they are celebrating with a silent auction and closing reception 6 – 8 p.m. Thursday, April 27.
Revland Gallery owner Steve Revland said, “The temporary gallery space gave us the chance to extend our gallery to Broadway featuring the student work as public art while helping to launch the careers of talented student artists, aspire to become professional artists.”
Students painted on either a 4 x 4’ or 4 x 5’ MDO board using the Hirshfield’s exterior house paint. One of the students, Ethan Woods, is from MSUM. The other five are from NDSU: Tyler Card, Carolyn Hausladen, Emily Mulvaney, Ben Neyers and Beata Weber.
You can view photos of the work on the Revland Gallery Facebook page.
If you’d like to place a bid on the work right now, Revland Gallery set up an online auction open for viewing and bidding on its Facebook page as well. The auction will culminate at the closing reception April 27. Students will receive 50% of the sale price and 25% will be donated to the art department of each artist’s school as scholarship funds and 25% goes to Revland Gallery.
Anyone interested in placing a bid prior to the closing reception can stop in the Revland Gallery, message the gallery on Facebook, or call Steve Revland (701-293-3225).
