Come and meet artist Reid Thorpe on September 2nd during a reception in the Visitor Center from 7 to 8:30 pm. Reid’s work will be featured in the Tettegouche Visitor Center throughout the month of September.
Reid’s current works are contemporary landscapes (views) from the Midwest, specifically Wisconsin and Minnesota. Reid creates images that offer a new perspective of nature’s depth and beauty. He uses color, calligraphic line and bold brushstrokes to create images of depth and beauty in his views.
Reid was born and raised in the rural Wisconsin town of Platteville and grew up spending countless hours hiking, canoeing, and enjoying the outdoors of his home state. He now calls Chaska, Minnesota his home. Reid studied Studio Art at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, where he received his B.F.A. He went on to receive his Art Education degree from The University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Reid taught a variety of subjects at the High School level for twelve years before pursuing his career in the Fine Arts. You can view his work in many galleries in the Twin Cities Metro area as well as in his home studio in Chaska, Minnesota.
