Park Rapids Area Artists Plan Reunion
June 28, 2021
The Original Members of Blank Canvas Gallery, who opened their gallery on Main Street in Park Rapids in June of 2010, are presenting a Reunion Art Show. The initial effort provided 20+ artists an opportunity to exhibit in the Gallery. Subsequently, 80+ additional artists were included during a successful 5 year operation.
Many of the artists remain in the community and are looking forward to working together again. While some artists have left the area, 21 artists will return for this event exhibiting a wide variety of local talent.
Local arts organizer, supporter and catalyst for the community arts, Bickey Bender, states that this unique opportunity coincides with the community progress on the redevelopment of Armory Square. “We would not even try this without the availability of Armory Square. The founding Blank Canvas members are enthusiastic for the opportunity.”
The event will be held at Armory Square, 203 Park Ave S, Park Rapids, MN
The show schedule includes:
August 12 (Thr) 6:30 Public Meet the Artist Reception
August 13 (Fri) Show Open 11 am – 7 pm; Artist Demo 1 pm
August 14 (Sat) Show Open 11 am – 5 pm: Artist Demo 1 pm

This event is supported by a gift from the Bella Sanders Estate, to the Blank Canvas Arts Resource Center, a non-profit arts support organization, with support from Heartland Arts which serves as an umbrella organization for sixteen arts and cultural organizations in the greater Park Rapids area.
