Henna Body Art
Art, History, Hands-On
Monday, Jan 5, 6:00

Find out how different cultures have used henna as body decoration, where it comes from, and how it's grown. Learn how to prepare the perfect batch of pure natural henna paste, application techniques, and the importance of choosing natural henna. You'll also have an opportunity to create and practice traditional designs on paper, yourself, or friends. This program is funded in part or whole by a grant from MN's Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

In the Gallery:

The Generals' Wives Quilt
by Norma Cersine
Each of the 12 patterned blocks celebrates the wife of a Civil War General, 6 from the Union and 6 from the Confederate states. There was an error when naming 1 block, as the officer, a colonel, never earned the rank of General. The center block is the insignia of the Five Star General.

A Call for Local Artists!
Reserve the Gallery, call 218 827-3345.
