Traveling art gallery showcases exhibits by local artists at St. Croix Valley State Parks

“Awakening” is a complex and harmonized group project inspired by the participating artists’ individual responses to their experiences throughout What We Need is Here seminars and a two-day summer retreat in the Barrens Wildlife Area, far north -east of the St. Croix River watershed, near the headwaters of the Namekagon River.

An artists’ reception will be held at ArtReach St. Croix (224 N. 4th Street, Stillwater) on Thursday, July 7 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This reception is free and open to the public.
