Sam Baardman - August.jpg

Sam Baardman (Winnipeg, Manitoba, CA) is a photographer and musician whose work investigates the bonds between human and nature, and the historical, mythical, political, and economic relationships we have with water. Baardman brings a well-rounded and experienced artistic  approach to his role as this year’s juror.

In addition to serving as the Juror for MacRostie Art Center’s 27th Annual Juried Show, Baardman will present a show of his own work in the Minnesota Gallery throughout the month titled “Immersion”. This new exhibit explores the artist’s personal relationship with water, and his journey to healing from his own encounters with the water.

Two years ago Baardman, a photographer, musician, and arts administrator, fell through the ice on the Red River near his home in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He turned to photography to help process the newly complicated relationship he felt with the natural world and his place in it. This is the first time "Immersion" has been exhibited, and Baardman will host a gallery talk about the series as well as his prior work.
