Weekend Watch: Brian Paulsen
After years teaching at the University of North Dakota, painter Brian Paulsen retired in 2007. To celebrate his work, the North Dakota Museum of Art hosted an exhibit of his surrealistic, fragmented imagery. Grand Forks isn’t the only place Paulsen left a mark. This weekend the Rourke Art Gallery, 523 4th St. S., Moorhead, showcases his paintings with “Eclectic Energies.” In addition to the original art, NDMOA’s companion book will be for sale. Paulsen discusses his style at a 2 p.m. gallery talk on Sunday and will be on hand to talk and sign copies of his book for the rest of the public opening from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for students.
