As a photographer, Roger Nordstrom is attracted to lines, shapes, and form. The images in this exhibition were captured in travels from Northern Minnesota to the US Southwest, and explore the commonalities between disparate regions through the elements of Time, Water, and Earth.
‘These intimate black and white images of frozen water and desert sand show us the beauty of sameness in such opposites. They help us to see more clearly how the earth holds the memory of change allowing us to bear witness to our past and the prepossessing harshness that is the cycle of time made visible.’
David Strom’s paintings and drawings are how he explores, reflects on, and interprets the landscape in which he lives, and as he puts it ‘lives within him’. A combination of realism and fantasy, his artworks are about living in the fertile farm country of southwestern Minnesota. References include gray steel grain bins, elevators, wind turbines, round bales, roads, ropes, rows of crops in all stages of development and rest, and the abstract way that we define the land using maps, specifically plat maps of townships in six square mile divisions. He combines these elements into vignettes, connecting them together ‘much like one would make a quilt or illustrate a graphic novel.’
This exhibition showcases work by local Iranian-Americans whose creative work in the arts reflects or illuminates their rich heritage. It is an opportunity for viewers to learn about Iran's history and culture through visual art.

Douglas Oudekerk has always loved to draw. He grew up in an era saturated with great artwork: including illustrations in books, magazines, comics, and advertising. For Oudekerk, this is artwork that tells a story - images that augmented the written word in powerful ways.
