RAW || Art Exhibition


August 2023

Visit with the artist on Friday, August 18 from 4-8 PM (brief artist talk at 5:30 PM) during the Downtown Art Crawl.

Receptions are open to the public. Light refreshments provided.

On the 18th, the Paramount will also be featuring live art demonstrations and a second art reception in the Historic Lobby.

  • Please note that St. Germain Street in front of the Paramount will be closed to host an art fair that same evening.

This exhibition is a visual story about love, heartbreak, and hope. It follows the story of a family with a loved one that struggles with mental illness. The St. Cloud Branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) will be onsite during the reception with resources to support for individuals, families, and friends whose lives have been or are currently affected by mental illness.

Consider donating to NAMI in support of Lindsay Kelly’s story.

Artist Statement:

Be brave. It is time to celebrate who you are. I can assure you that there are beautiful pieces that come from the ugly truths. Give yourself permission to love yourself. Give yourself grace among the chaos, disdain, and despair. Explore the challenges. Be proud of what has made you YOU.

Exhibiting Artist: Lindsay M. Kelly

I have found in my life that the biggest trial to overcome is the one of selflove and acceptance. We all have parts of ourselves that we want to turn our backs on. We wonder if our hurt will allow for one more breath. Some things are too painful to name and those feelings sit somewhere deep within until they are unable to be contained. I hope the work I do resonates with people for all different reasons in all different ways and also shows that there is a common vulnerability we all share that binds us to one another.

Connect with Lindsay virtually.
