This event has been postponed. More information soon!

We’re having a party, July 11th, 5pm at the Dow Art Gallery in St. Paul.
Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing: 2242 University Ave W, St Paul, MN 55114

We’re very excited to announce the creation of Minnesota Exposure – Education! We’re so excited, we’re inviting all of you to a special party at the Dow Art Gallery! The party will be part fundraiser, part meet & greet, and will feature a print photo contest! Come out and meet the team behind Minnesota Exposure, the crew at the Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing, and meet the fantastic photographers  whose work you’ve grown to enjoy in our competitions!


Over the course of the evening, we’re hoping to raise $2,000 for items required to furnish a classroom: tables, chairs, and a projector screen. Our goal to create more opportunities for photographers extends to helping them learn in a friendly, supportive environment, that mirrors our online competitions. The dynamic duo behind Minnesota Exposure – Education are Don Tredinnick and Peter Berman, and they are making their years of experience and supreme expertise accessible to everyone through workshops, seminars, and outdoor events.

We will have a silent auction for some products from Think Tank and artwork for sale.

Photo competition – Pets

Now is your chance to get in on our next big adventure!  We’re hosting another paid photo competition with the category of Pets!  Yes, we love our pets, too!  Your entry into this competition nets you a chance to win a cash prize and help us out.  Proceeds will go to furnishing a classroom at the Dow Art Gallery in St. Paul.  The Dow Art Gallery and Picture Framing is offering significant discounts for framing for contest entrants.  Contact Khanh at (612) 607-9203 for more information.
