Weekend Showcase: Hopkins Center for the Arts Spring Members’ Show
Another rite of spring in the local art scene is the Hopkins Center for the Arts Spring Members’ Show. If you go you’ll discover there is a lot to see.
“We have 209 works in this show. It’s an enormous show,” said Jim Clark, visual arts director at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

The Hopkins Center for the Arts Spring Members’ Show encompasses all three gallery spaces. There is the upstairs and first-floor lobby galleries, as well as the Redepenning Gallery.
“Our spring exhibition is non-juried for entry. Which means that every member artist that submits work is put on display. But while not juried for entry, it’s judged for cash awards,” said Clark.
As you may expect, you’ll find a variety of disciplines as well as a range of skill levels and abilities within the many works on display by the approximately 100 artists represented.
“I think I say this a lot about the exhibitions here, but it does, I think, have something for everyone,” said Clark.
Also check out the Hopkins Center web page for a video of the Spring Members’ Show awards presentation. There are videos of member artists talking about their works and others on display. Although all the work is from members, not all the members are from from the west metro.
“We have work representing artists from all over Minnesota, primarily the Twin Cities area of course. But we do have members throughout the United States. We have work on display from an artist in California. And we have work from and artist in New York. And we have work from that amazing and exotic local, Wisconsin,” said Clark.
Not all of the works are for sale. But if you find one that is, and you just have to have it, feel free to contact Jim Clark at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
The exhibition is up through May 8.
