The Watermark Art Center and Paul Bunyan Communications present “The Human Journey: Works by Joachim Berthold,” opening from May 6 through Aug. 13.

The exhibit looks at the transformation of the individual and strength found in community. Berthold’s drawings and sculptures grapple with the evolution of humanity and the role art plays in that development.

Born in 1917, Berhold was a West German sculptor who worked primarily in bronze. His work has been shown in museums and galleries around the world, including New York, Munich, Milan and Vancouver.

A free, public open house will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 6. Watermark galleries are open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 505 Bemidji Ave. N. in Bemidji. For more information, visit or call 218-444-7570.
