Artist Claudia Allene's global photography on display through July at Crossing Arts in Brainerd
Allene took photos on three-year solo trip to 41 countries
BRAINERD — Crossing Arts presents a photography exhibition from a local woman’s trip around the world.
Claudia Allene’s “A Collection of Souls From Around the World” began in 2013, when she started her three-year solo journey across the globe. She visited 41 countries, including Peru, China, Mongolia and India.
The photography exhibition opened July 8 and will be displayed through July 30. An artist reception will be held from 5-6 p.m. Friday, July 22. Wine and light appetizers will be served. The public is invited to attend.
Allene documented her travels through photography, capturing the destinations and people she met along the way.
The exhibition paints an interesting picture of the incredible world around us, one we share with so many different cultures, wondrous sights and precious souls, Crossing Arts said in a news release. The images present an opportunity to learn more about the people and places through brief stories that accompany each photograph.
The exhibition is sponsored by Gather On 3 Event Center. It is funded in part by the voters of Minnesota through grants from Five Wings Art Council and the Minnesota State Arts Board because of legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
Allene’s project was made possible by a grant provided by Five Wings Art Council with funds from the McKnight Foundation.
