New Rehfeld’s owner reflects on first year

From staff reports

One year after taking over ownership of Rehfeld’s Art & Framing, Matt Jorgenson has made additions to the downtown gallery and is planning for more.

The Brandon native bought the Phillips Avenue art gallery and framing business from Larry Rehfeld. Jorgenson also owns 1948 Trading Co. in Brandon.

Jorgenson has added new gallery layouts and work from new local artists, as well as taken on community causes.

“We have an excellent tradition and, now more than ever, an energetic staff and culture ready to take on several new large commercial projects while also servicing individual customer framing of all materials and sizes,” he said. “We also want to have strong community involvement, starting with showcasing the region’s finest local photography and artwork.”

Rehfeld’s is helping coordinate a 1,000-piece art placement for the new Sanford Health hospital in Fargo and partnered with a fellow downtown business, JAM Art & Supplies, on events. An auction of pieces by local artist Jerry Cook benefited the Alzheimer’s Association.

Jorgenson said he plans to add more activities to support art students and emerging creatives in the community as they establish themselves, including regular events displaying student art and opportunities for artists to use material and scraps in their work.
