The New York Mills Regional Cultural Center is now featuring the photographs of Jamie Robertson of Wadena.

According to a press release about the new gallery exhibit, “Leaf River Inscapes: Views from the Minnesota Interior” is a series of photos that find beauty in an ordinary place.

“These images aren’t a documentary or objective reflection of the region,” Robertson said in an artist statement. “They are my personal interpretations of my relationship to this place.”

Robertson said he wants the photos to encourage reflection, memory and vision in everyone who sees them, and encourages viewers to engage in a creative process, “building our own personal sense of place.”

“Leaf River Inscapes” will be in the Cultural Center through May 22. There will be a reception and artist talk from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, May 7. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. COVID precautions will be followed, including mask wearing, social distancing, hand washing and requesting that those who are ill stay at home.


The show is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. To arrange private viewing and tours, contact Cheryl Barnes at 218-385-3339.

The exhibit is made possible, in part, by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Art Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Culture Heritage Fund.
