What Do Vibrant Colors, Vivid Imaginations, Young Enthusiasm, and a Wild Variety Have In Common?

There is one of the Bigfork Art Expositions that is a family favorite and very unique every season. It is the annual student art exposition that opens the gallery season each year and is, in many ways, very enjoyable.  No matter what else follows it, the art that young minds present at the Edge Center Art Gallery in Bigfork will open viewers imaginations with its young and fresh approach. The show always feature lots of colors and variety, and this year the art presented will be the first under the direction of our new art teacher: Alexa Reichensperger.  It is in the art...come and see for yourself. To see this exhibition, visit the Bigfork Art Gallery that is attached to the Bigfork School from April 26th through May 26th during the regular hours of the gallery which are Thursdays through Saturdays 10AM to 4PM each day.  There is no charge to see the exhibits.

For Alexa this is her first teaching assignment. With her BA in media communications she is well versed in Digital art, Videography, photography and graphic design. And with an MS in education, she is an excellent art teacher for the Bigfork school.  She says, "I have lived in four different states in the past 10 years, but MN is home. I enjoy outside, coaching basketball, and to create -- especially taking something old and making it into something new. I feel right at home here in the Bigfork/Marcel area. I love being nestled in the trees and surrounded by lakes."  So come and see what our new art teacher brings to the area in terms of inspiring the art in our students. Below is an example of some of the results.
