Voices from the NAG: Jill Enestvedt

For the past two months we’ve been featuring the ten portraits created by photographer Craig Perman for the Voices from the Northfield Arts Guild project. Each of the subjects was photographed in a setting appropriate to their artistic discipline and asked to answer the question: “How has the Northfield Arts Guild enriched your artistic life?”

“The Northfield Arts Guild has been a source of enrichment for me my whole life. As a young child I did kids art projects in Central Park during the art fair, took tap and ballet classes in elementary school, studied Chinese brush painting in high school, began volunteering as a young adult, and now have had a chance to exhibit in the gallery. The impact of a quality arts organization in a small town cannot be overestimated. To grow up in a community where there is value in volunteering for the arts, value in hearing and seeing the arts, and value in creating art is extremely fortunate. I will continue to learn and grow as an artist because of this organization. The NAG is a gem that makes all of Northfield shine, and with it, the talents of its many creative residents. I’m grateful to be one of them.”

Working with the Arts Guild as a volunteer exposed me to a variety of artists and craftsmen from the Northfield community as well as throughout the state. This experience enhanced my interest in the arts and influence my choice of studies at St. Olaf College.
