Are you an Artist? On canvas, on paper?
In your head?

Does Picasso and Rembrandt, Pollack and Warhol inspire you?
Do you dream colors and designs? 
Then come on and JOIN the Pine River Art Club!

We are a group of seasoned local artists from the Brainerd Lakes region who love ART!
We paint, draw, and CREATE!!
We participate in local art shows and fairs and sponsor our very own Art Show and Sale each June.
Participation is open to all members.

We welcome any new artists, beginner or advanced, to come to our meetings, held the first Wednesday of every other month.
We enjoy teaching each other art techniques, and encouraging each other's craft.

Come and show us your art and what you are about.
We can't wait to meet you!!

A Brief History of our Club

Our Club began in 1960 organized by Bessie Hanson, with a modest 5 members. We now have grown to 20 members and would like to invite any artists, of any medium, to join our fun and supportive group. We have an array of talent encompassing watercolor, oil and acrylic painting, drawing, and fibers. We welcome any medium. Our members  live in the surrounding communities of Pine River, Emily, Backus, Hackensack, and Pequot Lakes, in Minnesota.

Each first Wednesday of the month we meet from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm to paint and make announcements, at the Pine River Warehouse.

Annually we give our members a chance to shine, display and sell their work in our Art Club Show, which takes place during the Pine River Summerfest celebration.
