n artist can be defined in a wide variety of creative media outlets and I'd need a lot more characters to list them all. Focusing on visual artists alone this month proved to be a little tough because there are so many in this community who deserve recognition, and we would never have enough pages in an entire issue to cover it all. There are many people in my life who I hold near and dear to my heart who are artists of all types–musicians, painters, mixologists, photographers, jewelry makers, hairstylists, writers or graphic designers. My message to all of those people and to any sort of artist out there who might be reading this letter is to embrace your craft. Always keep doing what you love and keep spreading the

Ochre

CREATIVE STUDIOS estled in a three-stall garage behind the Teamsters building off of Main Avenue in Fargo is the home of Ochre Creative Studios, a space where student artists have come together to create more opportunities and support for young artists alike. A little over a year ago, Tyler Gefroh was looking for studio space and so was Andrea Qual. But when Gefroh came across the quaint, homey garage space in the alley behind the Teamsters building, he knew it was a project that couldn’t be tackled alone or as a duo. By Erica Rapp “There wasn’t really anything available Photos by Paul Flessland that was affordable or suited our needs.

20 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

After we found the space, the only way I knew we could do it is if we had more artists,” said Gefroh. “That’s the only way I knew it was going to work. I couldn’t afford the rent by myself and even the two of us splitting it wouldn’t have worked.” The two were able to work through mutual friends and other students in the


supplies, or even remodel projects such as renovating the studio’s bathroom into a photography dark room–something they plan to do in the near future.

art programs to find local talent that was interested in being a part of the shared studio space and in March 2016, Ochre Creative Studios started coming to life. It can be defined as a “contemporary art gallery and shared studio space for up-and-coming artists in the FargoMoorhead area.” However, Gefroh explained that it’s not quite a gallery. Not yet, at least. “We don’t really want to charge someone to hang their stuff up in a garage, so we just see it as more of an opportunity for them at this point,” he said. Ochre currently has seven members, all local college art students. Each pays a cut of the rent to use the space to create art and store some of their work and supplies. The studio has also held a few shows and exhibitions displaying their own work and the work of others, and is available for other artists of all types to hold shows as well. Gefroh also explained that 10 percent of each piece of theirs that is sold gets put into a studio fund, which covers things like community membership fees, repairs,

“We have this sort of, maybe not intentional, purpose to expose people to more contemporary art. I think once we started as a group, we were motivated by each other. You have one person do something that’s really nice and you kind of want to do the same thing or represent yourself as well as the group well, so there’s a lot of accountability I feel like. It’s easier when you have more people involved,” said Gefroh.

A Platform For Young Student Artists

Opportunities for college student artists and young artists in general can be hard to come by, and that’s where one of Ochre’s roles really comes into play. The space gives members an adequate place to create when school’s not in session, and it gives students more opportunities to showcase their work. “Basically, I see it as a platform for young student artists to get out of an institution or school setting and into the real world, so to speak. It’s sort of an experiment, because you get to see what’s in the future for you as an artist as far as what you’re going to have to do,” said Gefroh.

“There’s nothing wrong with universities and our professors love what we’re doing, but I just feel like students need space to work that isn’t in their house or apartment because most of the time that doesn’t work. We agreed that we wanted to make this kind of a spot where we could show other students’ work as well.”

The group has done just that so far by hosting various art shows and a recent juried show that featured student submissions. Michael Waltz, Ochre’s newest member, said that shows are a great way to get people into the space, but there’s still more to be done to raise awareness and get others involved. “Coming from the outside, I had heard about Ochre and the things they were doing, but I wasn’t exactly sure what. I think that’s something that we’re all still working on. How can we get other people and other students involved so it’s not just us here individually working? How can we involve the community? I think that’s something we still need to figure out, and doing shows is a good chance to get other people into the space,” said Waltz. “We want to support young artists. There isn’t much for young artists to do here, so they always move and try to do it elsewhere. So one of our goals is to support the young art community here and expose people to new forms of art in general,” said Gefroh.

Why are the arts important for a community?

For any type of artist, the response to this question seems like it should be a no-brainer, but it can actually be incredibly difficult. Art encompasses so many forms and mediums that answers can be truly arbitrary, as the arts impact every single person differently. Although some of the members of Ochre initially responded along the lines of, “What is water? What is breathing? What is living?” the question prompted a deep pause in thought from many members before giving answers. Nikayla Snyder: “I think that, although it’s really important for individual expression, it’s important to come together as a multitude and express to make positive changes, and show beauty in ways that people maybe would miss otherwise.” Tyler Gefroh: “It’s a way of communicating. Art deals with all of your senses, especially when you think about something like music, too. All of that is important to create experiences rather than just living your day-to-day life. It’s nice to just experience something that’s out of your reality. Art is a necessity.”

Ben Neyers: “Art is in everyday things and we might not realize it. It could be clothes, menus, advertising, the products you use–there are artists that work hard on those things. If funds to the arts get cut, it would be like cutting funding to a whole generation of those people. There wouldn’t be creative growth at all, even for consumer goods.” Nikayla Snyder: “I think creativity also prompts intelligence, too. You need to expand your mind and have creative opinions in front of you to think about so that you can make good choices as an individual, or even as a nation, state or world. Creativity prompts that.” Tyler Gefroh: “Intelligence is a good point, because you can’t create something without knowing anything. A lot of your work can be very simple, but it still has to be a study of something. It takes more effort than just common knowledge, I guess.” Emily Beaman: “Historically, art has always been one of those things that challenges society to move forward and I think that’s important to continue.

Apt

AN ARTS INCUBATOR

By Erica Rapp Photos by Paul Flessland

24 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

he Arts Partnership and Kilbourne Group have recently come together to highlight the arts and their role in the community, and by doing so they have created APT–an arts incubator with a mission to provide a creative, collaborative and safe place for artists to create and for the community to get involved. And even if you’re not an artist, you’ll quickly find out that many types of individuals can benefit from this multi-use space. The Arts Partnership’s executive director Dayna Del Val has all of the details when it comes to how this new incubator space works, why it’s important to the community and it’s success so far.


Before diving into the details about APT, it’s important to understand The Arts Partnership’s role in the community. The Arts Partnership is a collective of over 150 artists, arts-related businesses and nonprofit organizations in the FargoMoorhead-West Fargo area. Its mission is to cultivate the arts in the community, and Del Val explained that they do that in four pretty distinct ways. • “We communicate about the arts through social media and lots of print media or radio, that sort of thing. We also have a really robust newsletter.” • “We advocate for the arts both formally with elected people at the state and three city levels, and also informally with things like service clubs and professional groups.” • “We create networking opportunities, and that’s where I think APT is really going to come into play for us, because it gives us this space to host networking opportunities whether its artist to artist or artist to business.” • “We give out grants. City Arts Partnership grants are city dollars that come to us and we re-grant those out to nonprofits making art. We also

privately fundraise for some additional grants to nonprofits and some grants to artists. We also have a funding relationship with Jade Presents to fund musicians of all types.” So why are the arts important for a community? There are plenty of answers to this question, but The Arts Partnership truly puts those answers into action. “At the end of the day, we really are here to amplify the arts and make sure that we’re talking about why they matter in every sense of the word–that they matter to the economic vitality of

“For artists or makers or anybody who doesn’t have their craft as their full time job, it’s hard to find affordable space to work. Even as a collective large or small, it’s hard to find that in town. But here, the energy around it is really great. You see other people working and making so you stay a little longer and you find yourself really getting inspired by those around you. It creates an entirely different environment versus having a solo studio space.” -Tenant and ceramic artist Tara Fermoyle in her APT space, Fermie Studios.

the community, your ability to attract and retain employees and business or your ability to problem-solve. Also, to sort of improve the overall culture and health of a community. You know that when your arts are supported, the overall sense of your community is healthy,” said Del Val.

An Arts Incubator

In a January 2017 column about APT in Fargo INC! magazine, Kilbourne Group General Manager Mike Allmendinger said, “Kilbourne Group is about creating great spaces and unique experiences in Downtown Fargo, developed in smart, sustainable ways that benefit the whole city. That often means developing the highest utilization of a space to get more value out of it, combining resources to make projects happening and finding beauty in the in-between spaces. What if there was a space where artists could test the same concepts?”

25


Essentially, that’s exactly what APT came to be when it officially launched in December 2016. APT is a creative incubator that includes studio spaces, galleries, rental areas and spaces for arts workshops, classes, rehearsals, performances, events and more. It’s located at 224 4th Ave. N, which is a building scheduled for redevelopment by the Kilbourne Group in 2018, so Del Val explained that those who are renting spaces are in a six-month contract for renewal as they please over the two-year period.

is ready to have this be a long term and permanent thing. Is the arts community ready to be in a collective and is the larger community ready to support it?” said Del Val. “I would say that we weren’t necessarily looking to take on a building, but when Kilbourne Group presented it to us we felt like we really couldn’t say no. The temporariness of it was really attractive to me, because if it works out really well it will motivate us to find a permanent space. If it doesn’t work, then at least we tried something for two years.”

“It’s a creative incubator and kind of this practice space to see if this community

So far, the space has been coming together quickly and seeing a wide


variety of tenants utilizing the different rooms for their craft. Anywhere from music producers, painters and ceramic artists to musicians, metal artists, jewelry makers, writers and even an improv group are making themselves at home in their APT workspaces when it comes to practicing, creating or collaborating. Tenants can rent rooms for themselves or share with others, and have 24-hour access to their space to use as they see fit.

APT For All

One of the most important things to know about APT is that isn’t not just for those working full-time in the arts or in need of studio space. The space can be used for all types of creative individuals and community events. Day passes are available for those who just want to utilize the space to do casual creative work or hold any sort of workshop without committing to a full lease agreement. Del Val said that yoga and writing workshops have already been held at the space, and that they’re really looking to grow similar types of creative bookings. Additionally, the space can be used for much more than just the arts. Many times, when artists come to the table, they can give you a new way of thinking about something that you didn’t anticipate. That’s why APT is beneficial for a wide range of individuals and organizations. “We really want the business community to think about using this space as an off-site event or team building space or a work meeting space with a creative component. We want to work with the business community to make this space work for them as well, because the ultimate purpose of this is twofold. One

is to bolster artists by having a shared space and two is to help with attraction and retention of employees,” said Del Val.

Moving Forward

The APT project came together quicker than expected, but the response to it so far has been thrilling. Even though 28 current tenants was an unexpected surprise at such a young state, Del Val can’t help but think about what the next phase looks like as far as what they really want for their tenants in a potential permanent space–things like lots of windows, a space with varying sizes to accommodate all types of budgets and a place that can still maintain an intimate and creative nature. “The upside to this happening so fast is that people still bit and we’re going forward with it all. The downside is that we didn’t really have anything in place and we didn’t budget or prepare for it. We’re just really trying to do it as it comes,” said Del Val. “I would not have expected us to be as full as we are now yet, so I’m thrilled. And I’m thrilled with the diversity.”

Local ceramicist Catie Miller

Catie MILLER

ocal ceramicist and Fargo native Catie Miller hunched over the pottery wheel, dipped her hands in a bucket of water to wet the clay and proceeded to shape it into an elongated cylinder. Every slight movement of her hands completely reshaped the piece. As she pinched the edges of the cylinder, she warped it into a gourd-like vase. Miller’s hands moved effortlessly and almost instinctively. She’s lived and breathed art for so long that creating has now become second nature.

28 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“I’ve been drawing and making things my whole life,” she said. “For as long as I can remember, I’ve been an artist.”

When Miller was young, she would draw Disney characters found on VHS movie sleeves. As she got older, Miller jumped from medium to medium, trying anything she could get her hands on. “When I was a kid, I felt like every weekend I’d go to my grandpa with a project,” she said. “He was a maker and could make anything out of wood. I would be like, ‘OK, grandpa, this is what I want to build.’ He’d then teach me how to make it. That really encouraged me to


build things with my hands.” Now, she takes one of the most abundant resources, clay, and creates malleable material objects—both utilitarian and decorative.

DISCOVERING CLAY

Originally interested primarily in drawing and painting while in high school, Miller was able to explore her passion by registering for art classes and working at Clay Your Way, painting hundreds of example pieces for the store. Her art teacher and mentor in high school and college was well-known local ceramicist Brad Bachmeier, whose pottery classes introduced her to clay’s potential and inspired her to explore the possibilities of ceramics. “In this area, it’s one thing to say, ‘Oh, there are tons of people in the world making a living as an artist,’ but to see someone in your own community living as a successful artist is inspiring,” Miller said. “Seeing him as an educator and run his own ceramic business, he definitely became a role model.”

While in high school, Miller came to recognize that art could become a sustainable vocation, one that she was clearly passionate about. After graduation, Miller attended Minnesota State University Moorhead and dual majored in art education and ceramics with the intention to become an art teacher. “I wanted to be an art teach because I love learning different mediums and being able to teach it to students,” she said. The longer she did ceramics, the more Miller realized she can incorporate the skills she learned from other artistic techniques onto her ceramic artwork. “In college, they do portfolio reviews and a couple of the professors asked, ‘You don’t really want to be an art teacher do you?’ And I said, ‘Yes I do. Teaching is my plan A. I do want to be an art teacher.’ And by the time I was done with my ceramics degree, I realized I really wanted to be an artist,” she said.


CATIE MILLER'S

Work Bed of Anemones 18” x 21” x 3"

"This platter illustrates the pursuit of luck through the capture of the lucky rabbit. In some folklore, it's believed that you must find a white rabbit at midnight, in a graveyard and shoot it with a silver bullet. The rabbit lies on top a bed of anemone flowers and next to a gun and bullet casing. Below, the lucky rabbit foot dangles off the platter from a gold chain."

After graduating in 2013, she accepted a two-year long artist residency at Red Star Studios in Kansas City. As a resident, she worked as the educational programing manager, where she coordinated kids and adult classes. But her primary job was to make artwork. “It was really helpful to bounce your ideas off of other artists, even those who don’t specialize in your medium,” Miller said. After her residency, she moved back to Fargo and began managing the Plains Art Museum’s educational program. Last June, she quit to become a fulltime artist. “Ceramics is a hard thing to just start up and do, because there are a lot of equipment costs,” she said. “Anytime I could buy something I did. I thought of it as investing in myself and my medium.” But she couldn’t give up teaching completely. Miller still volunteers at the Plains Art Museum and hosts art classes at Unglued, a local gift shop in Downtown Fargo that features artists’ work and crafts.

30 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

“I’m trying to focus on having my own business and I love it so far, but it’s just really fun doing things outside of ceramics,” she said. Through her Unglued classes, Miller gets to utilize her diverse skills in different mediums, hosting a variety of classes from painting to Beyoncé cross stitching. Miller said she thinks she will always teach classes for the community in some capacity.

EXPLORING INSPIRATION

Miller has fused her love for drawing, painting and ceramic to form what is her style today. She paints illustrations varying from narrative scenes to seamlessly repeated patterns. Similar to a monoprint process, she then transfers the painting from newsprint to clay with underglaze and colored slips. This method results in a diverse representation of her paintings, creating a timely, aged and weathered appearance on the red clay foundation. “The process I do is a printmaking process, it’s kind of like a temporary tattoo," Miller said with a laugh. The images she draws are graphic, simplified depictions of realism with

Baited Temptation 9" x 14" x 5"

"Camouflaged in floral motifs, two weaving snakes make their way throughout the surface—a reference to temptation in the Garden of Eden. On top of the base, five removable cones rest in place. The creative functions of this unique piece are nearly endless. It makes a great sculptural centerpiece. The removable center cones allow the user to fill it with flowers, ice cream, trail mix, cotton candy, potpourri, snacks and the list goes on."


emblematic patterning. “I’m an object maker, so I’m interested in this idea of how objects hold meaning,” she said. “One reason people have objects is for luck.”

Shot in the Night 21” x 18” x 3"

"This platter illustrates the pursuit of luck through the capture of the lucky jackal. Although you can't see a jackal's horn, it's believed they appear during full moons. If captured, the horn is used as a lucky charm or amulet. Behind the jackal illustration, greens and golds reference the background illustrations on a dollar bill. Overall, the piece is an narrative of the pursuit for wealth and fortune."

While exploring the belief in luck, hunting and ultimately the pursuit, she continually examines the basis of human motivations and superstition. Miller is currently obsessed with the idea that people would have a momentum that they carry around with them with the belief that it’s lucky. "I draw lucky rabbit feet a lot," she said. "There is this pattern of all these lucky rabbit feet but I don’t think you would really know they were unless you’d look closely." Miller said that when working with functional ceramics, you have to think about what it would be used for, too. “I create an assortment of functional ceramics, some more fun than functional,” Miller said. Her favorite piece, “Baited Temptation,” features an ice cream stand with five cones. It’s then decorated with a floral camouflage pattern but hidden within the flowers are snakes.

Floral Fruit Bowl 7” x 10” x 9.75”

“The idea of it is that you’d have ice cream in all these cones and then suddenly notice there are snakes weaving in and out of the flowers," Miller said. "It represents temptation.”

IMPORTANCE OF LOCAL ART

Pitcher

When Miller returned home from Kansas City, she wanted to bring more awareness of lcoal ceramic artists in Fargo-Moorhead. She then teamed up with other artists to form a ceramics group called the Cone Pack. It consists of six ceramicists with a shared vision to create a contemporary clay community in the Fargo-Moorhead region. Through two to three events per year, the group tries to educate the community on the importance of local ceramics.

“It was a way to introduce ceramics to the community and let people know that they can buy homemade dishes and support local businesses,” she said. Miller only purchases locally-made plates, bowls and cups as a way to support other artists. She places the dishes on shelves in the dining room, which then serve as decoration and are also functional. “Some of them are made by friends, so when I use them I think of that person. Others are from people I admire or pieces I found and fell in love with,” she said. “You don’t always pick the same cup or plate every morning, it all depends on your mood.” Miller believes it’s more important now than ever to be an artist. She said art gives people a voice and an opportunity to communicate their point of view to the community. “The arts bring culture to our world, and without the arts, our world would be dull,” she said. “The biggest role of an artist is to enrich the community.” When asked about advise for other artists, Miller said, "Being an artist is really difficult. It's extremely hard, but it’s worth it. I love my job. I could work all day, every day and it doesn’t even feel like work."

Steve REVLAND

orn and raised in Fargo, Steve Revland has been involved with the local and regional art scene since the early ‘60s. From playing Norwegian folk songs onair at WDAY as an 8-year-old to a 42-year career as a furniture craftsman and gallery owner, Revland has fostered many long-term relationships with artists along the way as he continues his craft moving forward. And he doesn't do it just for himself, but for the community.

“I’ve been an artist all my life, since childhood. It’s all I know,” said the local craftsman and gallery owner as he talked about his time as a Fargo musician before becoming a master woodworker. But in his early ‘20s, Revland took a break from his solo performing act and purchased a book

on building birdhouses, thinking it might be "therapeutic." Before he knew it, he was crafting with wood left and right, as it gradually led him down a path of where he sits today. “It’s lead to a 42-year career. For someone who flunked woodshop in high

Revland founded The UpTown Gallery in Downtown Fargo in 2013, which featured his furniture and the works of established and emerging artists from the community and region. Unfortunately, the gallery closed in May of 2016. The closure was a difficult decision for Revland to make, so he took some time off before resurfacing in the fall of 2016 at the Revland Gallery in the former Goodyear Schumacher building on Broadway.

"My ultimate goal was and has been to continue a brick-and-mortar showroom, as the majority of my yearly sales are generated from tables purchased through the gallery. I still continue to do custom work, but at my age it's much easier to design and build to buy. Clients come in for a view and a touch, and if interested, will schedule a delivery. I've pretty much sold every table I've brought in here, closing in on 150 tables over the last three years," said Revland.

school, I really wasn’t destined to be doing what I'm doing, but it is what it is, and I’m not complaining. I’ve lived a charmed life,” said Revland. “As far as my furniture career goes, I’ve worked really hard, but you know, there has been a tremendous amount of luck involved. I've been fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time, most of the time. I’m 64 and I’ve got a lot of tread left on the tires, so I’ll probably be doing this until I tip over. I don’t know any artists who retire. I won't be one of them.”

A Craftsman's Career

Revland is a lot of things as an artist,

34 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

but has made the most out of his career as a craftsman and was even featured on HGTV’s “Modern Masters” series in 1999, 2000 and 2001. He specializes in designing and crafting dining room tables, coffee and end tables, consoles and writing desks– mainly utilizing exotic woods from other countries–and stated, "After all these years, I can usually purchase a slab of wood and quickly determine what I will make from it. Each slab is like a snowflake, with specific characteristics, which guides me in the decision making process."

The Revland Gallery features the works from 17 artists, including Revland himself. Revland explained that the gallery staff has also created the "start" project, which stands for student art. If you look at the front of the building, you'll see six paintings created by local university students. Revland explained that it's a way for their staff to help our students launch their careers, and that the paintings will be auctioned off at an upcoming alumni event with the proceeds going back to the students as well as scholarship funding at each university. The gallery also works to support causes that they believe in, having hosted various cultural events to raise awareness such as the recent Fargo Women's March and an opening honoring African culture. "It's not so much about donating money to these causes, but more about raising awareness and showing our support," said Revland. "Our philosophy here is to give back as much as possible to the community that raised us. We also try and make it a fun and pleasant experience for


everyone that comes through the door. There is nothing pretentious or elitist about this gallery. I'm not embarrassed to say that I barely graduated from high school and have no education in the arts. What you see is what you get. However, I try to think a bit out of the box, utilizing my skills as a space planner and experience as a businessman. When all is said and done, we feel if we adhere to these principles and values, hopefully everything else will fall into place."

Moving Forward

The Revland gallery is currently in a temporary space owned by the Kilbourne Group with a lease that runs through April. Another move may be in the works for Revland and as much as he wants to regroup, certain variables will need to take shape. "Of course I want to continue this. It's good for my business, yes, but I would miss the interaction with artists and the patrons that I serve. Somehow, in any way shape or form, if I can make a difference at all in the arts community, I would love to. There may be as well, some folks who would like me to go away and I get it. I inherited thick skin. Regardless, the joy I have experienced over the years has been priceless."

The Importance of The Arts

Revland started as a musician at age 8, and firmly believes teaching children the importance of the arts should begin at an even younger age, while their "skulls are full of mush." "When our kids are 4 or 5 years old, we, as parents and a society, would be better served by implementing more culture within their conscientious as they enter their 'curious' years. They may not become artists or musicians as they enter adulthood, but it will remain with them forever and the world just might be a better place because of that," he said. "Unlike European countries, our society has a tendency to treat artists as second-class citizens. This needs to change. That being said, I'd like to thank my parents and older sisters for filling my skull when it was full of mush. Thanks to them, it's been a good ride."

Gallery 4

By Erica Rapp Photos by Paul Flessland

36 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

allery 4, Ltd. was founded 42 years ago and is currently the longest consecutive-running cooperative artist gallery in the country. But what you’ll find at Gallery 4 is more than a room full of art and a longevity title. Gallery 4 is a family, and one of artists who truly care about the community and keeping its art scene alive. Local artist Dennis Krull, Gallery 4’s current President and owner and operator of 5foot20 Design Lounge in Moorhead, and local photographer and gallery member, Scott Seiler, filled us in on how Gallery 4 works, what makes it an important piece of the local art community and why they love being a part of it.

Being the longest consecutiverunning cooperative artist gallery in the country, Gallery 4’s longevity is special. The gallery opened in the fall of 1975 in the Block 6 (former deLendrecie’s) building on Main Avenue and Seventh Street as a space for artists to regularly have a place to show and sell their work. By 1981, the gallery had expanded to over 30 artists and moved to the main


Gallery 4’s current member artists. Back Left to Right: Dennis Krull, Kathryn Luther, Jon Offutt, William Damon, Doug Stuckle. Front Left to Right: Karman Rheault, Connie Riedman, Barbara Benda Nagle, Elizabeth Schwankl. Not pictured: Scott Seiler, Marcy Dronen, Carmen Bruhn

floor of the building. Three years later it moved to the historic Black Building in Downtown Fargo before it moved to the Moorhead Center Mall in 1989. In early 1995, Gallery 4 relocated to a spot off of Main Avenue downtown and then moved back to the Black Building in 2003, where it currently resides. Scott Seiler: “I don’t think you can be in business for over 40 years and not adapt to the changes and not have a market that’s out there. That’s sort of the exciting part, because throughout all of these different years there have been many artists that have brought a unique perspective. Some are great at being artists, some are great at the business aspects and some are great at educating us on what we need to do at different shows or creating that customer experience.” As a true coop gallery, it’s owned and operated by local member artists. There are currently 12 member artists at Gallery 4. Each member artist pays a monthly rent–with a six-month minimum–to be a part of the gallery

and have their work displayed, and each puts in two or three days a month working at the space. When the gallery is looking for more artists, those interested in being a member submit their work for review by the other members before being accepted. Aside from being a gallery and art retailer, Gallery 4 also participates in many downtown events and does art swaps with the Bismarck Downtown Artist Cooperative. Dennis Krull: “We’ve had as low as eight members but 12 in this space gives everyone just enough to showcase their work properly. Right now we’re happy with 12 even though we could probably go bigger.” You can meet any of the artists on any given day and talk to them about their work. DK: “Art in general is important for any community to prosper and grow. As for us, compared to other galleries, you actually get to meet the artists that create the work that’s hung up here and such. I think part of the gallery’s longevity has to do with the fact that


FROM THE we’re all local artists and established artists in the area.” Everybody works together like a family. SS: “I’m one of the newer members of the gallery and I think for me, it’s been great just because I’m able to work with more experienced artists who have a variety of mediums. One of the things I like best about this gallery–being that it is a coop so it’s a little different from other galleries–is that all of the artists work together. They’ll give you feedback or if you need a pep talk, they’re there for that. We all take turns working on the show’s floor and everyone is willing to pitch in our help out if you can’t make it. It’s not a competitive nature, and more of a growing educational type of art.” The gallery benefits its artists on multiple levels. SS: “I’m part of The Arts Partnership and FMVA (Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists) but I also do art trade shows in North Dakota and Minnesota. I’m reaching a different audience with those shows and I’m reaching a difference audience with the gallery. It’s great because I can provide artwork and different levels, and it’s nice to have another outlet where I can showcase my work outside of trade shows. It’s great to hear all of the feedback and know that you’re on the right track.” DK: “I like being a part of it because you get a lot of diversity and a lot of different media and people. You get a sense of where everybody comes from and their background with what they create. And I think with this gallery, part of what makes it special and beneficial is that we’re community members and from around the area, so we have that kind of community feel with our art. We all care deeply about this community.”

I

f you’re looking to try something new and exciting in the cocktail department, the luck of the Irish will hit you quick when you order a drink from bartender Maggie Green at Blarney Stone Pub. Her recipe for an approachable Irish-inspired drink is not only refreshing for spring weather on the way, but you’ll definitely want to enjoy it on St. Patrick’s Day surrounded by your best pals. BY Erica Rapp PHOTOS BY Paul Flessland

52 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Q &A Can you tell us about your drink creation?

“It’s kind of modeled after the Irish Buck, which is typically made up of Irish whiskey, ginger ale and lime juice. The Maggie/Blarney Stone twist is that we are using our house Irish whiskey made with 2 Gingers whiskey that’s infused with cinnamon, apples and a splash of melon and lime juice. It gives each sip a hot apple cinnamon start with a cool melon finish and makes for a fun, refreshing drink. Plus, you can make it just as good at home by using the classic 2 Gingers whiskey and it’s the right color for St. Patrick’s Day.”

How did you come up with the recipe?

“I get a lot of help and inspiration from the other bartenders and managers here. We’ve all been in the industry for so long and everybody has such great ideas. I thought it was important for us to all put our heads together and come up with something that’s really great for sitting around the Blarney Stone on St. Patrick’s Day and enjoying a great time with friends.”

How would you describe your style of cocktail making?

“I usually like to keep things fun and really kind of simple. I like to make drinks that people like but have maybe never had before that they can also go home and make themselves. Sometimes, a lot of the really nice cocktails are delicious but you go home and you might not have those special cherries or infused syrups. It’s difficult to do that sometimes. I like to think of things that people can take home with them.”

• 1 oz. “Pikey’s Poitin”* or 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey • ½ oz. Melon Dekuyper Liqueur • ½ oz. lime juice • Ginger ale

Are there any trends in cocktails that you’ve noticed recently?

“I think people are getting more and more interested in whiskey. That might be because I work at a bar that has such a great selection, but people get really excited about it. They’re really learning about how different each one can be–each one has a different flavor, different texture or a different feel. You can do so much with whiskey so I think that’s something that’s really growing as far as I can see.” *"Pikey’s Poitin" is the Blarney Stone Pub’s special mix of 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey infused with apples and cinnamon. You can easily make another version of this drink at home by just using the classic 2 Gingers, too.

Why would customers love this drink?

“It’s a little different, but with great flavor. And it’s green, so it’s great for the time of year. Having the apples, cinnamon, melon and ginger is something you don’t see too often, so I think it’s something different and fun but also really easy to love and enjoy.”

FOR THE EXTENDED INTERVIEW fargomonthly.com

Start with a pint glass filled with ice and add the whiskey, liqueur and lime juice before filling the rest of the glass with ginger ale. Give it a little shake and garnish with a lime. 53

or three years, I taught a course for Concordia College's Offutt School of Business in Bangalore, India.

Several of the students were confused, yet Dmitry, one of our students, emerged with energy and focus. Our class was being held at a Starbucks in the heart of the city.

minutes later, Ashwini and I looked out at a traffic circle filled with cars, motor bikes and rickshaws and I then saw something that changed my life. Dmitry had gone to buy a whistle and was now in the heart of the traffic circle. He was attempting to fail at managing traffic. He positioned himself in the middle of the chaos, channelling his inner police officer, and for the next 45 minutes he directed traffic. Within minutes, he created a more efficient flow of traffic in one small part of a very large city. His efforts to fail fell short, as he accomplished something I would have believed would fail immediately. The funny thing about the assignment was that none of the students failed. Some where able to play the local musicians drums and others were able to sell products from the market. The

efforts of these students taught me a very personal lesson, that sometimes it can be hard to fail. At a time in our country's history where new challenge are emerging and our political climate is shifting, all of us must remember that failure is okay, and sometimes, even when we give it our best, it can be difficult to fail. For our team at Emerging Prairie, there are times where we will try a new

project with the hopes of proving it won't work. This has lead to our annual 1 Million Cups event becoming the most attended event in the country of its kind. It's the same approach scientists use to test their ideas. If all of us are going to reach our full potential, it may be time that we flip our approach and spend time trying to fail, with a sense that sometimes it may just lead to beautiful opportunities for others.

If all of us are going to reach our full potential, it may be time that we flip our approach and spend time trying to fail.


IMMIGRANT PERSPECTIVES in print by ETHAN MICKELSON photos courtesy of GREEN CARD VOICES 56 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

mmigrants are here to stay in our area, and Green Card Voices is here to give them a voice to create a better understanding with the community.

In a classroom tucked away from the bustling halls of Fargo South High School, five eager students share their enthusiasm for a project called Green Card Voices.

Fargo South and Davies High School. In similar fashion a year before, Green Card Voices was empowering Minneapolis High School immigrants and providing a platform for telling their stories.

Despite the astounding collective journey these students have encountered, they’ve all converged at one table at one time, bringing with them an expanse of knowledge, culture and life experiences from Tanzania, Kenya, Iraq and Nepal.

The pure desire to nurture and solidify each perspective in print brought Green Card Voices to Fargo South, along with a collaborative team and technique for capturing the magic of a voice on video and then transcribing into text.

With a total of 31 immigrants from the Fargo school featured, Minneapolisbased nonprofit Green Card Voices has collaborated with the community to curate unique stories from around the world.

“What Green Card Voices does is really unique because you can also have lower level English speakers,” said Leah Juelke. “Most of the students in our first book were intermediate to high level speakers. The lower level students were still able to speak and answer six questions about their lives even though they couldn’t write it out in our original book.”

CLASSROOM COLLABORATION The convergence of these authentic voices first started as a project called “Journey to America: Narrative Short Stories” by Mrs. Juelke and Mrs. Pulst and their ELL English classes from

As co-founder and executive director of Green Card Voices, Tea Rozman-Clark,


Ph.D., has worked with the Fargo school and coordinated a joint effort to help people learn about diversity and legitimize immigrant and refugee voices. “This book has a two-fold purpose," said Rozman-Clak, a first generation immigrant from Slovenia and 2015 Bush Leadership Fellow. "The first purpose is learning English, writing and public speaking, but even more important than that I feel is empowering young people to know they have a voice and they should use it. If they don’t tell their stories, someone else will for them. The second purpose is the book itself. It’s a great resource for people who are not immigrants that want to connect and better understand who these people are. They can do that through the first-person essays.” LEARNING IN MANY WAYS “Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories From a Fargo High School” is a taste of each student’s complex life that provides a glimmer of personality from the vibrant and engaging youth. “Imagine you’re in Africa. You don’t know the language there, how will you survive? You have to learn the language, right?” said Iraguha Yvette, a Fargo South student originally from Tanzania. “That’s how we are right now. We’re in America. We don’t know anything about this culture, so we have to learn and start from the basics and go up. So, they should take the time and read our stories because it may be you tomorrow who’s going to be in this situation.” Also produced by Green Card Voices is a teaching guide for middle and high school students. It is based on the

stories of present day immigrants and guides users through a historic, cultural, and personal journey as it introduces the topic of immigration. Utilizing the perspectives of modern-day immigrants from Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America, the teaching guide is designed with a diverse student body in mind and helps guide students through a similar experience as the books. “We’ve already had extremely positive feedback, more so even in this political climate, because people do understand that there is fear or misunderstanding and we do lack resources for people to get better acquainted,” said RozmanClark. “To understand the motivations of this immigrant, why they’re here, what they’ve been through.” The highly anticipated book, which launches on March 28, has been met with endorsements from a variety of prominent locals such as Dr. Todd Bertsch, principal of Fargo South High School. “Everyone has a story. Green Card Youth Voices captures the powerful stories of immigrant students attending Fargo South High School,” said Bertsch. “The journeys that these young men and women have experienced are a mustread. A whole new world is exposed and shared because of these ambassadors.” In addition to their origins and history, the book allows the students to share their aspirations and explain how they plan on making a mark on their new home. Through this open and inclusive dialogue, the new Americans find confidence in themselves to pierce through language and culture barriers to make a meaningful connection.


very different, and there was a lot of diversity. There weren’t lot of similarities to any of the schools I went to in Mexico. Everything seemed like how I saw it in movies and American TV shows. On my first day of school, the counselor introduced me to a girl so she could help me. She showed me the school and how everything worked.

Excerpt from “Journey to America: Narrative Short Stories Volume 3” Mrs. Juelke’s & Mrs. Pulst’s ELL English 4 Classes, also to be featured in Green Card Voices:

“Hi, what’s your name?” the girl asked politely. “My name is Marai,” I replied nervously. She was struggling with saying my name, so she only said she was going to call me ‘M’. I didn’t ask her what her name was because I was very nervous and I had never had a conversation with anyone in English. I didn’t want her to ask me any more questions or start talking because I was afraid I wouldn’t understand anything.

“New Beginnings” by Marai Lilian Castillo Fonseca

E

ven though it was the beginning of April, it was very cold and freezing for us because in Mexico it was hot and sunny at the time. I was very happy because it was my first time in the United State. We went to Petsmart to buy things for our cat and dog that arrived the same day, but hours later. We lived in a hotel for a month because our furniture and everything wasn’t in Fargo yet. When everything came we moved to a house.

in the street because I thought people assumed I was an illegal immigrant just because I was Mexican. I noticed there weren’t really any people who walked on the streets. It was also really hard to communicate. In Mexico, I never had problems asking people questions, ordering food in a restaurant, or even saying hi to a stranger on the street. In Mexico, people walked a lot and greeted you or waved when they saw you, just to be friendly. Here, it was all different.

I thought it was going to be very similar to Mexico, but everything was completely different. The stores, the streets, the houses, and all the people were different. My stepfather worked all day, so we had to communicate and do everything on our own. I felt weird when I walked

School was very confused to me. I was in middle school. I had to go from classroom to classroom. I had to use a locker and they didn’t let students go out of the building or play outside on the playground. I didn’t wear uniforms, the system of how school worked was

“This is my friend Abrar, we’ll show you where your locker is,” she pointed to another girl. She showed be where my locker was and helped me get to all my classes. At first, all my classes were very difficult, but then I got used to everything. In eighth grade I met a Mexican girl and we became friends, but then when we started high school, she moved to West Fargo. I went to school the last two weeks of seventh grade, then I attended eighth grade at Carl Ben Eielson Middle School. When I went back to Mexico for the first time, I desperately wanted to stay there forever and never come back. I realized soon that I had great opportunities living in Fargo. Some things in my life have changed, but my new beginnings will lead me to a brighter future.

"Foodish" BY C.J. English | PHOTOS BY Two Hearts Photography (Courtesy of C.J. English)

noun:

1. any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb, in order to maintain life and growth. Example: raspberries 60 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM

adj:

resembling food.

Example: egg beaters

adj:

1. any edible substance historically unrecognized as food. Example: a protein bar


C.J. English is a Fargo native and the author of the Amazon Kindle Best Selling Weight Loss book, "WTF am I Supposed to Eat?" She can be found locally at Rejuv Medical Aesthetic Clinic, where she offers private coaching for weight loss and wellness. She devotes the rest of her time to writing. English's breakout memoir "AFFAIRYTALE," debuted at No. 1 on Amazon Kindle in Diaries and Journals in 2015.

What percentage of your diet is actually food? Even though something is edible, can we really consider it food? The better question might be how “healthy” are those foods? Which begs another inquiry into what is the definition of “healthy” in 2017? I guess it depends on who you ask it to, because it seems that “healthy” has become subjective. Like when aliens crashed at Roswell or when Elvis ate knoephla soup at Krolls 50 years after his death, “healthy” has become another phenomenon where people take sides rather than consider the evidence and think critically.

Do you consider 100-calorie snack packs of cookies and low fat pretzels healthy? What about weight loss shakes, snack food-like bars, powdered liquefied meal replacements, protein isolate, extracts of this and that, or foodish products like egg beaters that market they are 100 percent egg whites but actually have 31 ingredients?

So what is healthy?

I have spent a lifetime sifting through a sea of information and misinformation on this issue and I have made it

my mission to unravel the mess and search for what is the truth and what is totally bogus. I have come to many conclusions. Some startling that rebuke many mainstream philosophies on weight loss and “healthy” or “clean” eating. I would like to think my conclusions are rooted in the evidence–I’ll share them with you if you'd like. I also know that for whatever I say is healthy, there will certainly be a good argument against it as well. So, I’ve given up and have decided to just EAT FOOD. Mostly plants. I drink wine and eat plants and I’m healthy, I think. But not all food is healthy, even if it’s actually real

food. This is a much more complicated discussion where gloves might come off and spaghetti could be thrown. But I like spaghetti, sometimes without meatballs, and I prefer it made with lentils but if you could throw minestrone soup and salad from the Olive Garden at me instead, I would prefer that. Now, if you see me at a local protein shake establishment or catch me wolfing down sweet potato fries and hefeweizen, don’t throw tomatoes. I eat out of convenience when I have to, just like you, and like to keep my food lifestyle real life-like. Nothing will ever be better than eating real food–

mostly plants. That is what is going to give you the lowest possible risk of disease and keep you at a healthy weight forever. I think we all can agree on this one thing. Food is healthier than foodish or food-like products. So when you ask someone or yourself, “Are those healthy?” begin by defining which category they fall into: food or foodish. If the answer is foodish–instead of powdered protein or a mysterious scoop of food-like something or other, consider going to a place that uses fresh-blended fruit, spinach, flakes of coconut and a splash of fresh carrot juice. Now that sounds divine!

HeartWarming Brews

To Kick The Winter Blues

The last few months of winter have been dragging on for what feels like forever and if you've lived here long enough, you know that March's weather can be a wild card. Since we don't always know how long winter will last around here, try one of these locally-brewed beers to help you embrace the potential cold slump and hang on until spring weather fully arrives.

BY Samantha Stark

Milk Maiden, Chocolate Milk Stout

1.

@ Drekker Brewing Company 630 1st Ave. N, Fargo drekkerbrewing.com facebook.com/drekkerbrewing

This beer pours a deep black with a rich, tan head. Generous additions of lactose sugar add a silky, smooth body and a bit of sweetness to balance the dark roasted coffee and chocolate flavors. Conditioning on raw cocoa nibs adds the finishing touch and gives this sessional stout its wonderful chocolate aroma, rich chocolate flavor and aroma. Milk Maiden was awarded a gold medal in the Best of Craft Beer Awards in Bend, Oregon. 5.0% ABV 34 IBU In the winter, a beer favorite among the area are ones with a dark, rich flavor and hardy body, like the The Milk Maiden. This brew is more malt-forward than hoppy and has a deep, rich malty flavor.

64 | MARCH 2017 | FARGOMONTHLY.COM


Cinnamini Donut

2.

@ Kilstone Brewing

764 34th St. N, Fargo facebook.com/KilstoneBrewing

The Cinnamini Donut is an apple cinnamon brown ale. Kilstone Brewing made a few slight tweaks to their Bossanova Brown then added apple and cinnamon. They then added a sugared rim to the glass to create that finished mini donut taste. 4.8% ABV 20 IBU The Cinnamini Donut is offered from fall to spring. The beer captures the sweet and spicy flavor of winter. With every sip, the sugar rim unexpectedly compliments the beers dark ale flavor, creating a almost warming taste.

Estonia 10-30

@ Junkyard Brewing Company 1416 1st Ave. N, Moorhead junkyardbeer.com facebook.com/JunkyardBrewery

The Estonia 10-30 is a Baltic porter, which originated in the Baltic region when brewers started to combine aspects of English porters with those of Russian imperial stouts. Junkyard's version of this style is brewed with lager yeast and smoked malt. 10.5% ABV 80 IBU This beer is perfect for winter drinking because it’s dark, rich and smokey. Plus, at 10.5 percent ABV, it’s got a bit of warmth for these chilly days and nights.

3. Mighty Red Imperial Red Ale Mighty Red is a West Coast style imperial red ale with @ Fargo Brewing Company

610 University Drive N, Fargo fargobrewing.com facebook.com/fargobrewing Fargo Brewing Ale House 4445 17th Ave. S, Fargo facebook.com/FargoBrewingAleHouse

6.6% ABV 55 IBU

a rich, malty body supporting a huge citrus and spice hop presence. Carmel malt and oats provide the rich, smooth body, while midnight wheat provides the red color and roast character. The Chinook hops provide a slightly sweet, spicy and fruity courter.

The Mighty Red is all around strong beer that features a rich, sweet taste of burnt carmel and earthy hops. It's a heavier beer that coats your month with every sip, perfect for the cold winter months. 65


5.

7. Hatchet Jack

@ Junkyard Brewing Company 1416 1st Ave. N, Moorhead junkyardbeer.com facebook.com/JunkyardBrewery

7.0% ABV 21 IBU

Hatchet Jack is actually one of the first two beers that Junkyard ever made. It's a Baltic Porter, which means its a bit more robust and higher in alcohol than a standard porter, but it doesn't have the roasted malt character of a stout. It's more of a chocolatey dark malt character in this beer. Also, the English ale yeast used in this beer helps to create the impression of chocolate covered cherries as the fruity ale yeast esters combine with the chocolatey malt character. This beer is great to drink right now because the dark, chocolate-covered fruit flavors will keep you thinking warm thoughts on soggy days in early spring.

Mango Iron Horse

@ Fargo Brewing Company

Ploughboy with Vanilla and Maple Syrup @ Flatland Brewery

3140 Bluestem Drive, West Fargo flatlandbrewery.com facebook.com/FlatlandBrewery

610 University Drive N, Fargo fargobrewing.com facebook.com/fargobrewing

The Ploughboy is an oatmeal stout infused with vanilla and Height of Land Maple Syrup to give it a chocolate richness and cookie-like sweetness. Because it's out of a cask, it has a creamier or smoother body.

Fargo Brewing Ale House 4445 17th Ave. S, Fargo facebook.com/FargoBrewingAleHouse

The Mango Iron Horse has a clean, crisp malt flavor with really bright high notes of citrus from the hops. It's then accented with a bittersweet taste of mango.

5.1% ABV 24 IBU

5.0% ABV 28 IBU

Ploughboy is a hardy, stick-to-your-ribs beer that's complimentary to a cold night. It's not super heavy brew like most oatmeal stouts, but still gives you a coated, warm feeling until the last drop.

It's not the typical winter beer, but a beer one would pick up to remind them of the summer months and get out of the winter funk.

Carl’s Cascadian Dark Ale

8.

@ Kilstone Brewing

764 34th St. N, Fargo facebook.com/KilstoneBrewing

5.9% ABV 70 IBU Carl's Cascadian embodies the local, hand-crafted concept of this small craft brewery. Often brewed with locally grown hops brought to Kilstone Brewing by one of their first customers, this dark ale is a full-flavored beer with a dark malt base and a hoppy IPA finish.

Brewed all year around, the Carl's Cascadian is a beer for any time. If you're looking for an IPA but still want the seasonal dark beer, you can get the best of both in this brew.

9.

Dampf Good

@ Flatland Brewery

3140 Bluestem Drive, West Fargo flatlandbrewery.com facebook.com/FlatlandBrewery

Dampfbier is a traditional Bavarian beer, though a bit of an oddity today. Brewed with 100 percent barley malt, this beer is fermented with a hefeweizen yeast at a relatively high temperature—about 10 degrees warmer than Flatland Brewery normally ferment. A deep golden color from the addition of Bestmalz Red X malt with a light grainy aroma, this refreshing beer starts relatively sweet, but has a dry, almost peppery finish that lingers. 4.1% ABV 17 IBU Dampf Good is a lighter beer with a bubble gum, banana flavor that reminds drinkers of spring and guaranteed to put you in a better mood.

Wheez the Juice IPA

@ Drekker Brewing Company 630 1st Ave. N, Fargo drekkerbrewing.com facebook.com/drekkerbrewing

10.

Wheez the Juice is a hazy, super-citrusy New England-style IPA with a focus on fruity, hoppy flavor and aroma, rather than the bitterness of most IPAs. This brew has a tropical fruit flavor from the mosaic and mandarina bavaria hops. It's brewed with oats to create a soft, creamy texture. It's a polar opposite of the typical winter beer to take your mind off the cold. 5.5% ABV 59 IBU The Wheez the Juice has the hazy, juicy tastes that everyone loves in the summer with a creamy finish that's perfect for winter. 67
