First Friday

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.

Headwaters Music & Arts will host the art of Ronald Kettle for the month of February. The show is an exhibit of seven original paintings featuring the ruins of Gothic places of worship from the 14th - 16th century.

Ronald, originally from White Earth, MN, started painting when he was young but then took a break from it for a while. He picked up the paintbrush again in recent years. He has moved around, taking classes and exhibiting in the Twin Cities area as well as Hibbing and Duluth.

There will be an opening reception with Ronald from 4-6pm on Friday Feb 1st. The exhibit will be up in the Headwaters Recital Hall through the end of the month.

Are you interested in Exhibiting at Headwaters? 

Headwaters' invites artists who are interested in displaying their work on our recital hall and exhibit space. Applications are reviewed by Headwaters staff; there is no cost to apply or participate.

Exhibits are hung by the artist, you are expected to have a knowledge of how to hang your art in an aesthetic manner. Artists who exhibit their work at Headwaters are expected set up as well as to pack up their exhibit during the agreed upon time frame, and to take part in the First Friday Art Walk exhibit opening during their designated month. If your work will be for sale to the public, Headwaters will process any sales and retain 20% of proceeds. The artist is responsible for any packing or shipping of artwork for customers. We can provide pedestals and minimal tools / assistance, but you are asked to come prepared. The work is generally hung for a month (this may vary), be sure to stay in good communication to discuss options. Headwaters will post about the event on our website and on Facebook, as well as create marketing materials. Your involvement in promoting your exhibit is greatly appreciated, and helps insure the success of this program.
