BEMIDJI -- Watermark Art Center will feature artist Maggie Thompson and her exhibit "Dakobijibe – She Ties Things Together,” opening Friday, Aug. 6.

"Dakobijibe" is an exhibition that explores themes of connection to one’s body in regards to place and relationships with others.

"Thompson combines mixed media in her pieces as a way to contain memory, to reflect, and to tell stories," a release said. "Relating to physical, emotional and psychological health, these assemblage pieces touch on her personal experiences with love, loss, abuse and home."
