Welcome to the 2021

virtual Love, Art   GALA

Thanks for celebrating with us virtually this year as we continue to navigate our new normal. Our main goal for this event is to raise funds and awareness to be able to offer the same scholarships for high school seniors, summer camps and art opportunities that we have for the past almost five years.

Please view the short video below on February 6, 2021 and hear first hand how students and community members used their scholarships from KAAP to help them in the arts.

Also order Stephanie's CHOCOLATES for pick up on February 11 & 12th at Morning Glory - just in time for Valentine's Day!

All people who donate or place a chocolate order on February 6 will be entered into a drawing to win a gift basket featuring items from Morning Glory - our featured artist!

Featured Artist

Stephanie Kalinowski


On any given day the smells of a home cooked meal and sweet desserts float down Elm Street in Kindred, ND!

Our featured artist Stephanie Kalinowski and her mother Wanda Hopewell opened the doors of Morning Glory Cafe on October 1, 2012 and became a breakfast and lunch destination in the community as well as a place to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Stephanie worked years ago at cafe in Fargo where she enjoyed making chocolates, inspiring the two to open their own place in Kindred.  

Stephanie is married to Matt and they enjoy living outside of Christine along the Red River.  They enjoy traveling, fishing and taking walks in the woods on their property.

Morning Glory is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. and Wednesdays until 8 p.m.  Come enjoy breakfast or check out their daily lunch special.  They offer catering, brew expresso drinks, take special orders for pies, baked goods and chocolate (especially around the holidays!) and sell handcrafted chocolate by the pound every day.  Stephanie will design your chocolate to order anytime and offers various chocolate molds to choose from or will order a mold special to your event.  Check them out on Facebook or at https://www.morningglory.shop

Since chocolates are her specialty, she is offering special GALA Chocolates to be purchased and ready in time for Valentines Day!  Enjoy a "Sampler Box" featuring a chocolate assortment including NEW Ruby Chocolate with intense fruitiness and fresh sour notes.  Designer candy bars are a new offering and she offered  three special  GALA Chocolate bars for purchase.  Though the window for ordering the chocolates below has passed, check out her other chocolate by stopping by Morning Glory or going to her website today!
