Gallery Opening & Artist Reception
November 1 @ 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm CDT
Join us at Watermark Art Center for the opening artist reception of ‘Beyond Whiteness” by Monika Lawrence.
When I moved from Germany to northern Minnesota about ten years ago, I knew that the winters would be long and very cold. Well, they are. I now know what cabin fever is. But I also found beauty and mystery in the northern winter. The world around me puts on a monochrome blanket, forests become transparent and graphical. Sparse colors seem even more vibrant, a snow-laden sky can appear darker than the snow-covered ground, snowdrifts reshape the landscape, and noises are muted.
I walked through several blizzards with my camera, even if that is a challenge. I love being out on a frozen lake in thick snowfall, when everything dissolves into the stillness of a whiteout. All senses sharpen.
