The View from the High Plains exhibit features watercolor paintings from artist Leith DeWeese. On display at the MonDak November 14 to January 13. Sponsored by the North Dakota Art Gallery Association.
Using watercolor, Leith has developed a unique touch. “Growing up in the west creates a sense of place in each of us. There are particular locations that we remember, sites with open vistas, clean air and a reverence for nature.” – LD
