Ways to Connect

Blair Treuer's textile exhibit "Portraits" opens tomorrow night (Friday) at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji.  A collection of large-scale images depicting her nine children, her husband and herself, her work uses thousands of small pieces of fabric as her pallete.  A kaleidoscope of color illuminating the spirit of each of her subjects, this dreamy, textural, visual experience of an exhibit was born from the unique spiritual journey of Blair and her family.    

..there's like one hundred and twenty people in the immediate town. It's a town where if somebody is sick they get together and have a benefit. If somebody's house burns down we get together and have a benefit. – Julie Crabb, Meadowlands

Trout Unlimited Chapter 642 Facebook Page

Trout Unlimited is a national organization that was created to perpetuate cold water fisheries, and cold water fisheries particularly means... it's cold enough to sustain trout…And right now with global warming we have a transition happening which is a major concern for Trout Unlimited as the temperature rises a degree or two in streams that are already critical for supporting trout. So the area that will support trout in 50 years may only be half the area that it is today. So it's a big deal.  – Charlie Parson, Trout Unlimited Chapter 642

Walker … it's almost like a storybook...It's still small enough that you can know everybody if you choose to. You can be private if you don't…Who would want to leave this, ever?

JoAnn Pells has spent nearly her entire life in the Walker area.  After encouragement from acquaintances, when she was nearing the age of 40, she decided to run for Cass County Commissioner. 

I'm a believer if you don't like it you, gotta dive in, try to make change. So I threw my hat in the ring and then I won…

 I...wanted to showcase our resilience...and our sustainability... my focus was on the plants... all these spirits, all these plants all have a virtue that are meant to help us.  And they're all either food or medicine or both. - Vern Northrup discussing his exhibit, Akinomaage
