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.

Terry & Friends | Terry Honstead
The exhibit Terry and Friends will be on display at Headwaters Music & Arts for the month of July. The exhibit will feature the work of local artist Terry Honstead alongside the art of her friends Kathy Gustafson, Dee Najjor, and Barbara Jolly. Terry credits much of her success to other artists and the supportive community in and around Bemidji. She feels that she would not have accomplished as much as she has without all those that have supported her along the way.
Terry enjoys exploring many art forms. She works in mixed media, acrylic, watercolor, encaustic, lamp work, resin and sculpture. Terry’s work evolves as she explores new media. Her constant re-creation keeps her art fresh, ensuring that viewers can never be certain what to expect. She says “Color and Texture are very important in my paintings. I often use bold, juicy color and sometimes fiber, hand made paper, and found objects to create texture. I love to surprise viewers with hidden meanings layered within the painting.”
The public is invited to meet the artist at an opening reception from 4 to 6 pm, there is no cost to attend and all ages are welcome.
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.
