Wintertide is a new collaborative effort by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association (NEMAA) and Public Functionary to highlight regional/NEMAA member artists’ high level of professional artistic capability.

Juried Biennial Exhibitions are an important instigator in the discovery of exceptional work of emerging, mid-career and established artists based on a competitive jury process. In addition to selecting the artists in the Biennial, the jurors will award a total of $10,500 in cash prizes that will be presented at the opening reception, Saturday, January 24th. In addition, music will be provided by Public Functionary’s music resident DJ Sarah White, 612Brew craft beer will be on tap, and Mattie’s on Main/Wilde Roast Cafe will offer a delicious sampling of hors d’oeuvres.

Come celebrate the bounty of outstanding artwork that NEMAA artists have to offer – a bright light in Northeast during the coldest time of the year.
