1st Annual Art Department Alumni Exhibition
Thursday, March 24

Coon Rapids Campus Visual Art Center
Public invited. Refreshments will be served.
The exhibition, running through April 23, showcases 36 former students who attended Anoka-Ramsey from 1985-2015 with works ranging from glass to printmaking, silver photography to digital imaging, painting, drawing to ceramics and various sculptural approaches. The exhibition also highlights the unique art facilities offered at Anoka-Ramsey.
The alumni have fond memories of their time at Anoka-Ramsey and are thrilled to be invited back for this showing.
“Anoka-Ramsey has a tremendous foundational curriculum that inspired me and drove me to pursue art as a career,” said former student Austin Eckstrom. “I wouldn't trade my years here for anything.”
“I attended Anoka-Ramsey Community College to get my first two-years completed of a four-year degree. My intent was to transfer to the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management; that was until I walked into Laura Migliorino’s painting class,” said Shirl Chouinard. “From that moment on I knew art was where my soul came alive, and I never looked back.”
