The Teachers’ Lounge Gallery presents Smiling With Eyes Closed, New Artwork By Martin Nelson. This exhibition showcases the collage and mixed media work of Martin Nelson, as he reflects on current events and the world that we live in today. From the bold imagery and irony that his work is known for, to more darker “real life” themes, this new body of work is a visual eye-opener and thought-provoking experience for all. An opening reception will be held on Friday, June 8, from 6:00 - 10:00 pm. Free art door prizes will be given to the first 20 visitors. Refreshments will be served. Meet the artist and enjoy mingling with fellow art supporters. This exhibition is free and the public is invited to attend. The exhibition is on display from June 8 - June 23, and is open to the public Tuesday - Saturday, 12:00 - 5:00 pm, or by appointment. The Teachers’ Lounge Gallery is located on the second floor of the Franklin Arts Center, 1001 Kingwood St, Gallery 226, Brainerd, MN 56401.
