Minnesota painter Dan Wiemer joins us this week on Radio Gallery as he prepares for a week on the North Shore at the Grand Marais Art Colony for Plein Air Grand Marais, September 9 - 16, 2016. Wiemer is a watercolor and acrylic painter who, at this point in his career enjoys his focus on the natural world and has been involved in plein air painting for many years. He will be the awards juror for this year's festival and is also the Colony's features artist for the month of September.
The painters from the Plein Air Grand Marais festival will be showing their work in an exhibit opening at the end of the week-long event with a reception: September 16, 5 - 7 pm at the Johnson Heritage Post. The work will be on display through November 13, 2016.
