Last month Adam Swanson opened a new show called “Art and Science” at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe in Duluth.

“Art and Science” expands on his common threads of humans, animals and their coexistence in the world.  This new body of work brings in ideas of energy, sustainability, machines and how humans have the ability to change their impact in the world.  Swanson said “The more we learn about our surroundings, where we came from and who we are, the more likely we will thrive in a universe of endless possibilities.”

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.

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.

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
