With a full art fair schedule and time spent shooting in the wilderness of Minnesota and beyond, it is exciting that Tischer is setting up shop in downtown Duluth.

Mn Artists

If you are a Minnesota artist you have likely heard of mnartists.org, a long running local arts project of the Walker Arts Center. Mn Artists is an online community that spills over into the gallery. With the goal for artists to reach larger and more distant audiences, the online community not only offers web space to artists to share their work and profile, but works to connect artists, to inspire collaboration and to propel local art into the regional and national scene.

After their retirement from UMD, Tom and Betsy Peacock weren't the type of folks to kick back and do nothing.

They saw a need: for more children's books for Native kids and for Native authors and illustrators to have a way to get a foot in the door of the publishing world.

So they founded Black Bears & Blueberries Publishing.

Patricia Canelake & Duluth Art Institute

Words can open up new ways of seeing, changing our ideas, creating new views. How many times has the posted writing at an exhibition revealed hidden layers and meanings?

This month there is a new show at the Duluth Art Institute combining poetry and art; not meant to explain but rather to compliment, amplify or share in the experience.  Faith King is a local writer and artist who has written Ekphrastic Poetry, an imaginitive artistic response to the visual, here in response to paintings, prints and drawings of local artists and some of her own work.
