WILLISTON, N.D. - Justin Sorensen, Williston State College Art Instructor, will open his first solo exhibition at the North Dakota Museum of Art (NDMOA) in Grand Forks from April 3 to July 10.
The NDMOA is committed to bringing contemporary art to North Dakota. Laurel Reuter, Director at the NDMOA, asked Sorensen to be part of an Art Makers series that invites professional artists from North Dakota to create a body of work based around a singular idea or theme.
"My last solo exhibition was two years ago and featured a lot of work completed in graduate school. This is my first solo exhibition at a museum," Sorensen explained.
Titled "Stalking the Snow Leopard," Sorensen's fifteen-piece exhibition is loosely based around the book, The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen. Ranging from drawings and photographs to sculpture and performance, the exhibition adapts Matthiessen's story of how a search for a snow leopard in the Himalayas becomes a spiritual journey.
"The NDMOA is an incredible space, and I'm very thankful to be showing there," Sorensen stated. "This is a huge opportunity for me to have an exhibition of this caliber at this stage in my career."
"Stalking the Snow Leopard" opens Sunday, April 3 at 4 p.m. and is available for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. until July 10.
