Ways to Connect

Anne labovitz

Looking back at 2017, a few Minnesota exhibits stood out. Taking on global, cross cultural understanding in today's political climate, these artistic endeavors shine bright.

Winter break for school kids is nearly here so this week we share a conversation about how you can help get some arts and crafts going at home. Retired school teacher Shirley Morton gives us ideas to get kids creative minds going with simple art projects and how the adults can help.  

North House Folk School

Do you know you can take an educational vacation on the North Shore?  North House Folk School offers single and multi-session classes in everything from boat building to felt making with a seasonal catalogue of traditional arts that will get you creating, building and thinking with your hands. 

Celebrating their 20th Anniversary, Greg Wright of the North House Folk School joins us on Radio Gallery to share their journey as an education destination on the “edge of forever.”

 

 

Radio Gallery: Chance

Dec 6, 2017
Kathy McTavish

If you have not experienced Chance, you might want to take a trip or two or three to the UMD Tweed Museum of Art.  Local composer and media artist Kathy McTavish has created a thought-provoking, experiential installation at the UMD Tweed Museum's Sax Brothers' Gallery. Chance is a self creating, coded, digital and audio installation, ever-changing through the hours of the day and the seasons of the year. To get the full affect of the work, you can visit multiple times as no two days of the exhibit are the same and it is on display for an entire year.

Karin Kraemer who recently celebrated the opening of her new Lincoln Park location is showing her work at Zeitgeist Arts Café alongside colleague and tile maker Pat Joyelle. Kraemer paints in the Majolica tradition making for colorful and vibrant paintings and patterns often inspired by the natural world. The two have collaborated on the Duluth Grill Coffee mugs and Joyelle brings her painting to life on colorful tiles as well.

Ryan Tischer Photography

"Take a piece of the North Shore home" is the tagline for the newest downtown art gallery Tischer Photographic Gallery.  Ryan Tischer is a local photographer whose stunning landscape photography is in a league of its own. 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.

Patricia Canelake & Duluth Art Institute

Words can open up new ways of seeing, changing our ideas, creating new views. How many times have posted writings 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 imaginative, artistic response to visual stimuli, here in response to paintings, prints and drawings of local artists and some of her own work.  

Imago Mundi/Luciano Benetton Collection

This weekend marks the official unveiling of the Sami contemporary art collection, Imago Mundi, with a full schedule of events in Italy.  The collection contains 140 art works shared through a hardcover catalogue, in a public online gallery and in future exhibitions. The Saminiature collection released this week is dedicated specifically to the Sami, the indigenous people of Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula of Russia as well as from North America.

Karin Kraemer

Longtime Twin Ports ceramic artist Karin Kraemer is celebrating the opening of a location for Duluth Pottery & Tile on Saturday, October 25.  Duluth Pottery, Superior Division has lived in the Old trade and Commerce Building in Superior along with the Spirit Room and The Red Mug Coffee House and Gallery for many years and is just settling into Duluth's Lincoln Park neighborhood at 1924 W. Superior Street.

Lindsey Schmitt

On Friday, October 13, Prøve Gallery opens a new exhibit of all women artists  in a re-imagined community-minded space. 

Last month a new exhibit opened in a new and unlikely venue, the windows of the Esmond Building at 2001 W. Superior Street, the old Seaway Hotel.  

Project Lulu

Something Project Lulu knows is that creative expression is healing. Duluth-based non-profit Project Lulu "brings expressive arts opportunities to individuals and communities in need, especially those living in health crisis." Through an upcoming workshop series called "Arts Express" Project Lulu invites people who's life has been touched by cancer including survivors and caregivers to discover, connect and express through writing, dance, drawing, collage and more.  Is this you?
