Every first Friday of the month Bemidji gets out on the town to support local art and the local businesses that put it on display. This tradition is known as First Friday Art Walk, and we are pleased to take part! Here at Headwaters we display art and  host the Headwaters Open-Mic CoffeeHouse.  Scroll down to read about this months exhibit.

Food & Flowers

- Kellie Lindquist -

Headwaters Music & Arts will host the photographs of local Bemidji artist, Kellie Lindquist, for the month of April. Kellie’s latest show is entitled Food and Flowers, a collection of small moments from her daily life featuring photos of food, flowers, and pollinators. The collection reflects Kellie’s passion for the outdoors and gardening and is a perfect ode to spring.

As an explorer of the outdoors Kellie relies on natural light of the moment to capture her photos, a practice which brings a sense of spontaneity to her art. Of her work she says, “I feel that natural light provides me with the truest colors, thus making the memory of that moment come back to life in the fullest way possible. I also tend to live in the moment with my camera lens. I capture what I see as it happens, rather than setting up a shot and waiting for the right moment. I appreciate the moment for what it is. My husband calls me a floatographer. I feel that description fits.”

Kellie’s current work focuses on the connection between the food we eat and the plants and pollinators that help make the food chain connection complete.

An opening reception for Kellie’s exhibit will take place from 4-6pm on Friday, April 5th, at Headwaters Music & Arts. The exhibit will be up in the Headwaters Recital Hall through the end of the month.
