This is a reminder to everyone that the Jamestown Regional Medical Center (JRMC) is not only a place to visit when you need to see a doctor but its a great place to see some terrific art. The visiting artist gallery, which is a collaborative effort between JRMC and The Arts Center, is now featuring the work of Michelle Lindblom. Lindblom’s work is in stark contrast to the work which has been perviously shown–it is non-representional and abstract.
Becky Wahl, JRMC employee and the Arts Center’s primary collaborative partner, wasn’t so sure she would like the abstract work but after seeing it installed was pleasantly surprised. She was drawn in by Lindblom’s use of color and texture. And she liked the experience of seeing shapes and forms emerge from the expressive pieces.
Lindblom teaches drawing and painting at Bismarck State College where she began in 1991 as an adjunct instructor and gallery coordinator, assuming her full-time teaching position in 2000.
Lindblom operates a studio and gallery in downtown Bismarck and exhibits her work locally and throughout the United States. She holds memberships in the National Association of Women Artists, Women Artists of the West, International Society of Acrylic Painters, North Dakota Art Gallery Association and the Bismarck Arts and Galleries Association. You can see more of her work at www.mick-art.com.
Artists who are interested in displaying their work for a three month period at JRMC should contact The Arts Center’s gallery manager Sally Jeppson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Artwork is for sale and can be purchased from the display with 20% of the proceeds split evenly to support both JRMC and The Arts Center.
