Horizontal Grandeur Call to Artists

Walking a Stevens County field of oats before harvest. ca. 1910.

The Stevens County Historical Society is pleased to announce the 6th Annual Horizontal Grandeur fine art exhibition is to be held again this July in the beautiful City of Morris‘ Carnegie Library building.

Inspired by Minnesota poet, Bill Holm’s essay of the same name, this exhibition is held in Morris’ historic 1905 Carnegie library.  The building which was expanded in 2005 to include a community gallery area has been home to many national exhibitions.

Sculpture, ceramics, multimedia, video, watercolor, pastels, oils, photography, and all types of visual media have been and will once again be considered for entry. Any visual artist who lives in one of the nineteen of American states, or Canadian province with a prairie are eligible to enter their work for jury consideration. All work must be the artists interpretation of the intentionally broad prairie related theme. Pieces deemed not original to the artist will be removed.
