America’s River: Paintings of the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area

June 11 - August 13, 2016

Thomas Paquette

Artist Talk: Saturday, June 11, 1-2 p.m. Opening Reception: Saturday, June 11, 2-5 p.m.

Artist Thomas Paquette – a longtime visitor and appreciator of national parks throughout the United Sates – commemorates the centennial of the National Park Service with a new series of oil and gouache paintings that celebrate one of Minnesota’s greatest environmental treasures: the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area.

Winding through the heart of the Twin Cities in south-central Minnesota, this national park protects a 72-mile and 54,000-acre corridor along the Mississippi River. Inspired and fascinated by the park’s unique location within a bustling, urban area, Paquette’s paintings capture the beauty and serenity of nature found along the river and amidst the cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis.

The artist will be present at the opening reception on Saturday, June 11 from 2 to 5 p.m. This exhibition runs concurrently with Sea to Sea, a group exhibition of paintings by gallery and guest artists in the Groveland Annex. Both exhibitions continue through August 13.
