The Paramount Center for the Arts has two exhibition spaces available for public use. The Theatre Lobby Gallery is located in the renovated Paramount Theatre portion of the facility. This space is elegant and has approximately 80,000 visitors annually. The space prioritizes group exhibitions and has some restrictions on availability and space. There is a $300 fee for exhibitions in this space (4-6 weeks).

Studio C is a gallery and meeting space located in the Paramount Visual Art Studios. It is available for individual and group exhibitions. There is no fee for use of this space but does have some restrictions.

Photography Sessions

The Paramount Visual Art Studios are excited to offer artists the opportunity to have their work professionally photographed at a very reasonable rate! For $50.00 you will have 30 minutes with local photographer Carol Weiler, who will take high-quality images of your work, which can be used for cataloging, submission of grants, or for your personal use. You are welcome to bring several pieces (depending on the medium and your needs, Carol is typically able to photograph 4 to 6 pieces in one 60 minute session) and you will walk away with a disc of your images in both JPEG and RAW formats.

Please contact us at (320) 257-5928 to or click here to schedule your session today!

*This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Central MN Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
