The Owatonna Art Center has opened a new showing in their gallery entitled 'what's left' or in other words a showing on lives touched by suicide. Around 45 Minnesota artists have contributed to this exhibit through painting, poetry, sculpture, graffiti, glass, weaving and photography. The goal is to increase discussion on suicide and reduce the stigma that surrounds it. There will be a Gallery Talk and reception for this exhibit on Sunday, September 10 at 2PM. This exhibit which runs through September 24 is made possible through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.

The Owatonna Art Center will also host an audio-visual show entitled "Skywaves" by Brian Bradley who was born in South Korea and raised in Southern Minnesota. This will take place Saturday night September 9 at 7PM with a charge of $5.

The Band Tangerines will hold a concert that will benefit the Owatonna Arts Center on Saturday, September 16 at 7PM. Tickets are on sale now at the Arts Center and Kottke Jewelers.

Mark down Sunday, September 17 as the public is invited to an anniversary celebration honoring Silvan Durban's 40 years at the Arts Center. Hours will be from 1-4PM.
