"healing the land"
Dana Hanson grew up in Faribault. Her mother and grandmother were both hairdressers and very artistic. As a child, she spent time amusing herself drawing at her grandmother’s shop. Dana raised four sons. She is a self-taught artist. Some of Dana’s illustrations have been commissioned for book covers and children’s books. She was invited to be the main artist for the Dakota Honoring held in Mankato 2017. Her passion is to be a visual artist working with those who have suffered trauma and allowing them the privilege of experiencing healing through art.
Dana Hanson will be exhibiting at the OAC gallery from April 8 thru April 29. She has received a grant from SEMAC.
Gallery hours are 1-5 pm, Tuesday through Sunday.
