The Kaddatz Galleries Board of Directors wishes to thank everyone who participated in ART @ HOME 2014.

The event was a progressive art party held to benefit the gallery and its educational programs.

Special thanks are extended to Nancy Eldredge Hess and Chris Eldredge, Deb and Jeff Zachmann, and Kathy and Scott Wagnild, who opened their homes and shared their hospitality and art collections with those attending.

Thank you to the board members and others who worked on committees to execute this plan: they did a phenomenal job.

The food, arranged by Dan Fitz and his group of worker bees was spectacular. The homes were as varied and interesting as was the art that was seen.

A very special thank you is in order to the event sponsors: Bell State Bank and Trust, Bluebird Gardens, Scott Norton-Century 21 Vista, Gail E. Childs-Financial Advisor for Edward Jones, Ryan Hanson Homes-Keller Williams Realty, Lake Region Healthcare Corporation, Northern Lakes Dental, Olson Furniture, Otter Tail Power Company, Ottertail Telcom-Park Region Telephone, Pemberton Law Office, Service Food, Nancy and Brad Straw, Stumbeano’s, and The Spot Panini & Wine.

Because of these people and businesses, event proceeds directly help Kaddatz Galleries continue to foster its goals of visual arts appreciation and education.

Thank you all for helping us maintain a first-class gallery in historic downtown Fergus Falls where artists of all kinds can proudly display their work and children and adults can explore visual arts in a variety of ways.

Please come to the Kaddatz Galleries and see a new artist featured every few weeks. “Public/Private,” a collaborative project by Moorhead, Perham and Minnewaska High Schools is showing now and the Kirk Williams and Joel Hegerle Retrospective begins June 17. Please stop in.
