Naomi RaMona Schliesman: The Silver Lining
- August 23rd - September 29th
- Reception: Saturday, August 25th, 6-8 pm
As a child growing up in Fergus Falls, Naomi RaMona Schliesman learned how to use her hands and create objects from a variety of media early in her life. Her family’s frequent moves from home to home as well as her awareness of the disparate décor of home, school and church taught her the importance applying ornamentation and aesthetic to making a sense of space that says “home” or signifies the function of the space. Schliesman holds a BFA from Minnesota State University Moorhead and a MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, both with an emphasis in sculpture. She has received numerous awards and scholarships and has attended national and international residencies. She lives and works as Artist Development Director for Springboard of the Arts in Fergus Falls while continuing to show her work nationally and painting with her daughter Zara.
