Northwest Art Center is best known for its diverse and wide-ranging exhibitions of contemporary and traditional art by local, regional, national and international artists. The Center's galleries--the Library Gallery and Hartnett Hall Gallery--are located on the Minot State University campus along 11th Avenue Northwest. Northwest Art Center welcomes the public and charges no admission.

Art Friends of the Northwest Art Center support the activities of the Center through fundraising and the offering of multi-disciplinary programming for the arts. The Northwest Art Center offers tours to selected exhibitions arranged by special appointment. We extend a warm welcome to all clubs, organizations, and schools. These tours are designed to engage participants in activities and discussions that encourage the development of critical and creative thinking skills. Through these techniques, participants discover works of art and consider their relevance to the world we live in.

The Northwest Art Center, a non-profit organization, is supported by memberships, Minot State University, and in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts. The Center hosts at least 24 exhibits per year. Regular exhibitions are: Americas 2000: All Media, Americas2 000: Works on Paper (both are juried art shows open to all artists), Best of Show solo exhibitions for the winners, a Biennial faculty show, the annual juried student art show, and senior student exhibitions.

Hours: Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., except on holidays.

The Library Gallery is open during the regular hours of the Gordon B. Olson Library.
