Mark Arvilla grew up in Tower, MN, and was a UMD Art Department student
in the 1960s. Mark Arvilla, or MARVILLA as he signed his last
works, created an astounding body of work during his lifetime. His paintings
range from sensitively composed and color abstractions of the northern
Minnesota landscape, to imaginatively expressionistic works reflecting
a landscape of inner turmoil, as he struggled to overcome depression in
his later years. The artists brother Burt and family friend Michelle
Lee (local newscaster for KBJR) have preserved Arvillas paintings,
drawings, and sketchbooks, as well as his unpublished manuscripts. A selection
of these, most never before exhibited, will be seen in this installment
of Tweeds Regional Projects series.
