Visual Arts — July 13 – Brainerd Dispatch

The Cross Arts Alliance
711 Laurel Street

The Crossing Arts presents the exhibition “A Collection of Souls from Around the World”, photography by Claudia Allene” at its gallery in downtown Brainerd.

The exhibition presents the photographs of Claudia Allene. Starting in 2013, Allene embarked on a three-year solo journey around the world, as she visited 41 countries, including Peru, China, Mongolia, India and more.

She documented her travels through photography, capturing the people and destinations she came into contact with along the way. This exhibition paints an interesting picture of the incredible world around us, a world we share with so many different cultures, wonderful sites and precious souls.

By viewing the images on display, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about these people and places through the brief stories that accompany each photograph.

An artists’ reception will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. on Friday, July 22. Wine and light bites will be served. The public is invited to attend. This exhibition is sponsored by Gather On 3 Event Center.

Allene’s project is made possible by a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, with funds from the McKnight Foundation.

This exhibit is funded, in part, by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Five Wings Arts Council and the Minnesota State Arts Board, through a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
