The Watermark Art Center is holding an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, with presentations at 1 p.m., to celebrate five years in its new building.

“Time has gone by so quickly,” said executive director Lori Forshee-Donnay. “We can’t believe it will be five years in December! We are really excited to be able to celebrate with everyone who has supported us along the way and look forward to saying ‘thank you’ in person.”

The free event will include refreshments and music, chances to win five art prizes and a commemorative ornament created and donated by Chris and Kelly Keenan, available while supplies last.

Bemidji-based grassroots organization Manidoo Ogitigaan is helping revitalize Native art forms and cultural knowledge.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
