A showcase featuring animal hides, pouches and psuedo-ceremonial weapons is coming to the Northwest Art Center’s Gordon B. Olson Library Gallery at Minot State University from June 26 to July 28.

Titled “An Individual Exploration of Spirituality,” Minot State University art student Shantelle Carey looks forward to taking audiences on an introspective journey of personal principles and religious ideology.

“Religion has always been a sensitive area for society,” said Carey. “I hope that the exhibition will help to reinforce the idea of religious freedom and acceptance.”

Throughout Carey’s exhibit, visitors can observe an exceptional combination of mixed media paintings on animal hides along with fascinating sculptures.

Inspired by Buddhism, Christianity and Native American culture, “An Individual Exploration of Spirituality” will have symbolic sculptures along with a work titled “The Gift,” a 7-foot-by-9-foot painting on a bison hide.

Hours are Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. with Carey’s reception taking place Thursday from 5-6 p.m.
