Fine Arts Gallery

Current Exhibition

Emerge | July 27 - August 25, 2021

Public Opening

Tuesday July 27, 4-7 p.m. in Normandale Fine Arts Gallery


While COVID-19 has drastically interrupted everyone's lives worldwide since early 2020, a particular group of four Normandale Art students carried on through those altered hybrid and online classes, graduated, then moved on to the next chapters in their lives. 

One thing was missing from their educational chapter at Normandale Community College- their group's AFA 2020 art exhibition.

"Emerge" is the title of their capstone exhibition, and it's their triumphant return to the Normandale Fine Arts Gallery for their July 27th Opening, more than a year after their "normal" exhibition would have been held in 2020.

Therese Azinger, Heidi Bakk, Sarah Monfils, and SaraEmma Regalado are those four students who collectively decided to persevere. They rallied to prepare their works and launch a show to share with the Normandale and broader Twin Cities communities.

"Emerge" highlights the complexities of human nature. In their natural state, living beings experience both life and death. Showing up looks different for everyone, and Emerge challenges viewers to grapple with their own existence and how they personally appear face-to-face with the complexities of the human experience.
