    Join Norfolk Arts for an opening reception at their Offsite Gallery, located on the 2nd floor of MacArthur Center (across from the Governor's School for the Arts Origin gallery). Free and open to the public. Photographer Charles Rucker aims to evoke a sense of joy and contentment while portraying the emotion of scenic encounters. "Places" captures both the warmth and chill of the North Dakota landscape, the distinct beauty of the Southwestern Sonoran Desert and a reverence for vast prairie lands. Parking is best at S2. Enter MacArthur Center from the main City Hall entrance. Proceed up the ramp to the 2nd level and turn right. The S2 entrance is directly straight ahead.
