Let's Visit Walker: Leech Lake Art League

I enjoy it so much, I feel like it's almost another chapter in my life as I'm getting older... I remember being a younger person thinking... 'gee. I'm just kind of bored.'... I can't be bored when I'm always thinking, 'well, gee, maybe I should pick up my brushes and start working on a new painting''s just a really good hobby that's become very good for me. - Rosie Gray on her hobby of painting

Let's Visit is Northern Community Radio's opportunity to take a closer look at one of the areas in northern Minnesota.  We recently visited Walker, MN.  Rosie Gray has been a member of the Leech Lake Art League for the past 15 years.  She spoke with Katie Carter about the art league and how it's affected her life.  

I've become friends with many more people than I thought I ever would in the Walker area just because of this group.  It's very encouraging! - Rosie Gray

Katie Carter started at Northern Community Radio in 2008 as Managing Editor of the station's grant-funded, online news experiment Northern Community Internet. She returned for a second stint in 2016-23. She produced Area Voices showcasing the arts, culture, and history stories of northern Minnesota.
