What's Included

Self-expression through the creative arts offers a healthy method of processing experience and renewing one’s emotional coffers. In August 2016, MacRostie Art Center will host an Art & Wellness Weekend in order to continue the conversation about ways to enrich our quality of life with creative practices. Sessions include: Therapeutic Yoga with Nicole Hoops, Art & Healing activity with Janet Miller, Expressive Painting workshop with Lea Friesen, Nature Art with Aaron Squadroni, En Plein Air Painting with Liz White, Somaesthetics yoga and creativity workshop with Pauline Sameshima, and Project Lulu exhibition with Arts Express healing activities through creative expression. Participants have the option to stay over-night for creative time and relaxation at the MAC, or arrange their own lodging and return Sunday morning for more creativity, wellness, and self-expression. Thank you to Super 8 of Grand Rapids, MN, for their generous contribution to this event.

About This Organizer

MacRostie Art Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to community growth through the arts in northern Minnesota. The MAC exists to support and advance the work of professional artists in our region and build a community that recognizes, appreciates and celebrates art. We believe that art is central to the quality of life in northern Minnesota – as it is everywhere – and that the artists who create, sell, and exhibit art play a vital role in society. Art is not a luxury, but an important engine for economic growth and community development.


With these values at our core, MacRostie Art Center presents exhibitions, workshops, classes, festivals, lectures, and other activities to engage the community in the arts. We support artists by providing a well-established venue for exhibition and sale of work. We work to keep the arts visible as a defining part of the community.


MacRostie Art Center is an active and involved member of the community that has been our home for over fifty years. We work collaboratively with social groups and agencies, educators, and other arts organizations on projects that reflect our shared objectives. It is the goal of the MAC that our services will reach all segments of the community, our efforts will enhance the status of northern Minnesota as an arts destination, and the artists who live and work here will be supported and valued.
