    The works of Bill Ellingson will be on exhibit as part of a four month exhibition series by Visual Arts Minnesota. The exhibit features works from various collectors, including Visual Arts Minnesota (formerly St. Cloud Community Arts Council) and the City of St. Cloud. Many pieces are being displayed from private collectors, mostly former students of Ellingson. The works vary from paintings to prints, featuring his family and landscapes.

    William John Ellingson was born in Forrestburg, South Dakota, on March 29, 1933. He earned a BFA degree in painting and drawing from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1960 and an MFA in printmaking from the University of Iowa in 1963. Ellingson taught printmaking at St. Cloud State University from 1963 until his retirement. He died on February 13, 1994.

    A reception will be on November 11, 7-9pm, cosponsored by the 912 Regency, with support from DB Serles. A videographer will be available to record stories about the art culture of St. Cloud. The public is encouraged to participate. “We need to start talking about the art scene in the 60s, 70s and 80s, because those stories (the real ones) may be lost with that generation. Visual Arts Minnesota is starting to collect stories and information, in hopes to make connections between the artists, their students, and our current arts culture,” says Heidi Steadman, executive director of Visual Arts Minnesota. An additional public discussion with Ted Sherarts will be held later in the month, to continue the discussion of St. Cloud’s art culture.
