The North of the 45th is an annual juried exhibition of artists living in the geographical area north of the 45th parallel in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. This line is known as the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole, and crossing this line from the south is often associated with being “up north.” This exhibition showcases the breadth and depth of artists living in this upper Midwest region from both rural and urban areas. This year’s juror, Kevin Buist, is an artist, writer, and exhibitions director for ArtPrize living in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has exhibited artwork in solo and group exhibitions in New York City and Grand Rapids, and has been featured in numerous print and online publications including the Art:21 blog, Solace Magazine, Art Hack, and SpoutBlog.
