2012Exhibition at The work of artist and Fergus Falls resident Nancy XiaoRong Valentine will be on display in an exhibition titled "Endless Scroll..." Jan. 14-Feb. 28 in the Waage Gallery on the Fergus Falls campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical C2020-01-142020-02-29#808080The work of artist and Fergus Falls resident Nancy XiaoRong Valentine will be on display in an exhibition titled "Endless Scroll..." Jan. 14-Feb. 28 in the Waage Gallery on the Fergus Falls campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College.
Valentine describes herself as a self-taught water-medium artist who draws technical inspiration from her Chinese heritage. Many of her works communicate her affinity for minimal color and her appreciation of organic line work, and they often focus on the natural and the feminine form.
Her current mediums of focus are watercolor, gouache and Chinese ink.
She said the exhibit, entitled Endless Scroll …, “is a nod to social media platforms like tumblr and Instagram, where users have the ability to consume copious amounts of media and imagery featuring societal constructions of beauty at rates like never before.”
An artists’ reception is scheduled for 2-4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, in Legacy Hall. The Charles Beck Gallery is open during regular campus hours, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday.1
Wondering what is acceptable to charge or pay for land rent in Minnesota? Recently, farmer profits are down and farmland rental rates have declined slightly while commodity prices have decreased significantly. These factors make determining a fair profitable farm rental agreement a challenge in today’s economy.
University of Minnesota Extension Farmland Rental Workshops help farmers, landlords and ag professionals determine a fair farmland rental rate. Presenters review historical rental rates throughout Minnesota and use data-driven decisions to help determine a fair value for land.
Extension hosts free workshops held across the state starting in November. Ag Business Management Extension educators help farmers and landowners determine a fair farmland rental rate for both parties.
Workshops cover local historic and projected farmland rental rate trends and current farmland values and sales. We also walk through a worksheet to help participants create a fair rental agreement.
Dates, locations and registration information for the coming year are posted in September.

Throughout 2020 the Otter Tail County Historical Society is partnering with the Fergus Falls Fish & Game Club to celebrate the Club’s 100th anniversary. The year long commemoration includes a new temporary exhibition at OTCHS entitled "100 Years of Conservation” opening February 8. The Society’s Dunlap Room will also feature a rotating schedule of displays related to the natural environment, ecosystems, vegetation and wildlife. Currently on display is an exhibit highlighting the work of three artists that have contributed to wildlife art both locally and nationally. Nicole Larson is a self-taught painter with an incredible talent for turning turkey feathers into detailed and creative works of art. All the feathers in her art are from turkeys, each coming with a special story about that particular bird. John S Wilson began painting in the late 1970s. In 1976 he entered his first stamp contest, placing second. This gave him the motivation to devote more time to wildlife art. In 1979 he won the first of many South Dakota State stamp contests and in 1981 became the first South Dakotan to win the Federal Duck Stamp with his painting of a pair of Ruddy ducks. Winning the Federal Duck Stamp allowed him to pursue his love of art full-time. The third artist features the work of legendary Fergus Falls metal artist Steve Jaenisch. Each year Jaenisch created welded awards given to members of the Fish & Game Club for their dedication to conservation. These awards will be on display throughout the year. A model of Jaenisch’s “Super Goose” is also on display. The full scale “Super Goose” was constructed in 1990 and donated to the City of Fergus Falls. It is located in Van Dyke Park by the Otter Tail County Historical Museum. The works on Larson, Wilson and Jaenisch will be up until February 7.
