What's New and What's Coming to Your Virtual Neighborhood Gallery + Museum
17 April 2020

While our historic museum building remains closed to the public, The Rourke continues to serve you

This week, we are rolling out another Artist of the Week, Timothy Murphy poems have been added to the Artist + Muse exhibit, and new George Pfeifer miniatures are now in the gallery store! And if you missed them: a small virtual exhibit of Charles Thysell linocuts is on view + Cameron Peterson's "Intro to Abstraction" class is available here

We are also continuing to plan for our 60th Anniversary and are seeking your help! There are many ways to participate in the commemoration of this important milestone—fill out an Interest Form here.

Explore what your neighborhood art gallery + museum has to offer and find your next artful adventure from the comfort of your home!

Artist of the Week : Annette DuBord

This week, we feature printmaker Annette DuBord. 

Top, "Swim 2"; bottom, left to right, "Casting Fate"; "Woot" (lithographs). Below,"North Shore Memories I - V" (lithographs, not pictured in numerical order)

Annette “Nettie” DuBord was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota. She studied Printmaking at Minnesota State University Moorhead and runs Funhouse Press with Cameron Peterson. Annette currently resides in Fargo with her partner and fellow printmaker, Cameron Peterson and their cats, Maybelline and Diva. She created The Rourke's 2020 Member Gift Art: a suite of lithographs titled "North Shore Memories" (a limited supply is still available for new members.)

Annette describes her creative process and technique:

Random thoughts occupy a lot of my time in “Nettieworld.” I attempt to research and plan out my work. I fail at that. My best laid plans meander off into something totally different and I am fine with that. 

As a printmaker, I love the process and rituals of printmaking. The area of polymer plate lithography gives me the opportunity to learn and experiment in a relatively new process. It allows me the freedom to be random yet controlled in creating my images. What you see and what I see may be very different and that pleases me.
