Between Here and there
On display: July 5 -September 1, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 20 (6-8 pm)
Kari's paintings are about our nameless places in rural MN. They are meant to call attention to the largeness of the natural environment that surrounds us, and our smallness in it. Her work shows off the land that is named only by mile markers or exit numbers and in the end, acknowledge the hardworking people who care for these places. To her these works are not landscapes. They are portraits.
Weber earned her education at the University of MN, Moorhead, graduating with both a BFA in painting and a teaching degree. Since that time, her work has included various forms of drawing and painting and today she is entirely a landscape painter, painting country subject matter with a contemporary approach. Weber currently works out of her studio located in the artist community of New London, MN. Weber is a 2017 recipient of the Artist Initiative Grant from the MN State Arts Board.
This activity is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to appropriations from the Minnesota State Legislature’s general and arts and cultural heritage funds. Additional funding is provided by the Blandin Foundation, Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation, Miller-Dwan Foundation, Northland Foundation, and many private donors.
