The Duluth Homegrown Music Festival is just around the corner, kicking off Sunday,  April 30th, and Day 2 is dubbed Ancillary Arts Night. Monday's festivities mix art and music with a line-up that feeds the need to talk, talk, and talk some more about Homegrown, the memories of last year, new songs or bands and plans for the week ahead.

Vance Gellert

 One new show up this summer at UMD's Tweed Museum of Art, Iron Country: Photographs of People and Landscapes of the Iron Range is the work of storyteller Vance Gellert. A St. Paul based photographer, Gellert began his journey north in 2013, learning about the range communities with his camera in hand.  This project shares the face of a community, the rich mining history and the people in Northern Minnesota.  His work is rich, insightful and beautiful.
