    “Fabric”, an Alumni Exhibit celebrating the sesquicentennial of Saint Cloud State University

    “Fabric”, an Alumni Exhibit celebrating the sesquicentennial of Saint Cloud State University

    Fri, Oct 5 – Sat, Oct 27
    Opening Reception during Art Crawl, Fri, Oct 19 from 5-9PM

    At Gallery St. Germain and Paramount Lobby

    The Paramount Center for the Arts is proud to host our newest exhibition “Fabric”, an Alumni Exhibit initiated by St. Cloud State University’s School of the Arts celebrating the sesquicentennial of Saint Cloud State
    University, displaying the diverse inquiries into visual culture and the persistent assertion
    of curiosity that exemplifies SCSU artists.
    The exhibit has three focuses, a survey of abstract painting on display at the Paramount Center for the Arts theatre lobby, along with works from local and national printmakers and illustrators, and an exhibit of wildly disparate approaches and techniques at the Gallery St.Germain. In the gallery, there are sculptures and readymades, concept-based painting, new methods of photography, and new media works such as video and performance.  


  • If interested in exhibiting at any one of our gallery spaces, please provide the following in an email to our Gallery Manager, Laura Ruprecht at

    1. 12-18 images in jpg format between 1-2mb each.
    2. An image list (in excel format) with title, date, medium, price and a short description (of each piece) no longer than 40-50 words.
    3. A curriculum vitae or resume with contact information.
    4. An artist statement about the work.

    Our selection process consists of advisory committee members from the Paramount that meet twice a year to determine upcoming exhibitions.


    McKnight Foundation awarded a two-year $90,000 grant to the Paramount Center for the Arts. The McKnight Foundation grant allows the Paramount to operate an auxiliary exhibition space across from the Paramount in the Regency Building, 912 West St. Germain in downtown St Cloud and support the continuation and expansion of the Paramount’s public art program. Hours are 11:00 am to 5:00 pm Wednesday – Friday, and Saturday’s: 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. “Gallery St Germain” features Minnesota artists who demonstrate a high level of professional achievement.

    About The McKnight Foundation
    The McKnight Foundation seeks to improve the quality of life for present and future generations through grantmaking, collaboration, and encouragement of strategic policy reform. In 2012, the Minnesota-based family foundation had assets of approximately $2 billion and granted about $85 million. Of that total, about 10% went to support an environment in which artists are valued leaders in our community, with access to the resources and opportunities they need to succeed.
