An exhibit called, See My Voice, will be on display in the Northfield Arts Guild’s Archer House and Allina galleries November 22nd through December 31st.

See My Voicewas made possible by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. The collection has been created by Arts Learners during Epic Enterprise’s daily art sessions in the Life Enrichment program. The collection includes watercolors, stencil paintings, pressed wax creations, handmade paper and mixed media. For many of the art participants at Epic that find communication a challenge, the opportunity to create this artwork has become an important form of self-expression.

The museum is a unique, must see, collection of objects from nature, science, industry and the arts. Gift giving?...there is nothing like the new prospective added to your bookshelf by a 450 mil year old fossil specimen. Or a 5” Megalodon shark tooth from the Cenozoic Era. 25%-off science posters, collector's glass vials and boxes, used scientific narrative/biography books, and Nature Series rock, shell or fossil gift sets... through December.  Museum and Museum Store open during Winter Walk 4pm – 9 pm.

The Museum has acquired a collection of 60 plates by Royal Copenhagen and Bing & Grundahl of Denmark, and Porsgrund from Norway with interesting documentation supporting its provenance.

 

The plates are meant to hang on a wall, provisions to install wire are on each plate. But the tradition started generations ago when wealthy families gave plates of Christmas treats to the servants. The servants set aside the plates, which were nicer than their everyday plates.
