Fargo based photographer Scott Seiler will have his work “Checkpoint Chew” on display at the North Dakota Human Rights Film and Arts Festival.
“Checkpoint Chew” examines the meaning and importance of the items left behind by the wanderer. Unintentional? Intentional? What do these remnants mean for those who come across them?
Seiler’s perspective has been shaped by his love of rural architecture. His landscapes are poignant, physical reminders of a past rural lifestyle. His dual interests in landscape and architecture stem from a childhood on the rugged, unspoiled prairie of western North Dakota. As a child, he roamed his family’s ranch, learning to appreciate the beauty of the prairie and the importance of quiet observation.
Seiler is a partner member at Gallery 4 in Fargo, a board member of the Fargo Moorhead Visual Artists, and is a grant recipient from The Arts Partnership. Recently he was accepted as Artist in Residence at both TMI Hospitality and Myriad Mobile programs.
“Checkpoint Chew” will be on display at the Spirit Room in downtown Fargo, North Dakota, Monday, November 13 through Friday, January 5. A public reception and festival awards ceremony will be held at The Spirit Room on Saturday, November 18 from 5 to 7 p.m. Tickets for the artist reception are currently available for $10. Refreshments for the reception and awards ceremony will be provided by Himalayan Yak.
