The Slaggie Family Lobby at the Winona County History Center will host gallery space for regional artists in a new partnership with the Winona County Historical Society (WCHS) and River Arts Alliance (RAA). The pilot show, “Making History: RAA Member Exhibit and Showcase,” will open May 1 and run through June 19. It will feature selections from the RAA online member show going on now at riverartsalliance.org. WCHS and RAA hope to create new opportunities for partnerships and to showcase Winona County’s cultural heritage through local art.
Regional artists are invited to apply online now for future shows. Juried shows will be six weeks in length starting June 26. Please apply before April 12 for 2021 show selection. Proposals for all mediums and types of art are welcome. More information and an application link can be found at winonahistory.org/artgallery.
The Slaggie Family Lobby at the Winona County History Center offers a grand venue for regional artwork to be showcased.
