Brett Lysne Opening Reception

October 17, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Please join us at the Spirit Room in Gallery I for Brett Lysne’s “The Lower Forty-Eight,” a highly detailed collection of ink illustrations exploring the social and political ills of contemporary America.

Brett Lysne was born in Fargo and raised in Crookston, MN. Having obtained his Master’s in Fine Arts from Washington State University he made his way back to Minnesota, taking up residence as a drawing and printmaking professor at Minnesota State University of Moorhead. Wishing to explore his love of cartography, Brett has painstakingly planned and detailed each piece in his exhibit. Stuffed with overgrown gardens of jumbled and nonsensical data, ripe with coded representations of the American political landscape, he strives to overcome his own “recurrent addiction to the news cycle, all while attempting to commune with the fear, fatigue, and burnout of those around me.”

Brett Lysne has exhibited work throughout North Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Massachusetts, and Washington at galleries including: Plains Art Museum, Windy Hill Gallery, Roy M. Chatters Newspaper and Printing Museum, University of Massachusetts, and many others.

“The Lower Forty-Eight” is made possible through funding in part by North Dakota Council on the Arts and the Arts Partnership.
