Jamie Ratliff talks the confluence of sports and art this week ...  and the Homegrown Music Festival is hatching a couple of photography shows:  the Homegrown Photography Show and "Photo Stupor."  The latter is a chance for folks to get a disposable camera and take it everywhere during Homegrown week to, in the words of the organizers, document "what really happened during this year's festival."

Annie Dugan's wonky cell phone created a cliff-hanger this morning.

After mentioning Sarah Brokke's Art History lecture this evening, Daniela Sandler's talk tomorrow as part of UMD's Visual Culture Lecture Series, Brett Grandson's demonstration of platinum printing as part of the Darkroom lab at the DAI, Annie talked about setting up for the One River, Many Stories project.

Thursday, Kathy McTavish will be hosting a talk about artists' "works in progress" in conjunction with the Sarah Brokke exhibit currently on display at the Duluth Art Institute.

Tuesday: rescheduled Tweevenings.  Thursday: Sarah Brokke with a reading and discussion on her current exhibit at the Duluth Art Institute.  Friday: "Impermanently Content" at the Prøve Gallery.  Saturday: art sales everywhere you look.  And in the meantime, if we're going to have 40 degree temps anyway, you may as well check in with the Duluth Public Arts Commission about their walking-tour map of public art.

Sharon Louden's exhibit "Windows" opens at the Tweed Museum of Art this week, as does Robert Minichiello's "Spontaneous Acts" ... and Richie Townsend performs as part of the "enhancement events" surrounding Sarah Brokke's “Portrait of an Artist and (Self)Portrait of an Artist."

The Duluth Art Institute's like a lovely Thanksgiving dinner these days.

The turkey, if you will, is a project of thanksgiving by Duluth artist Sarah Brokke, in which she painted 35 portraits of people who inspire her to celebrate her 35th birthday.

Artist Sarah Brokke joined us to talk about turning 35, and how it became the genesis of  her Gratitude Project: a series of portraits of local artists who inspired her.

Connection, inspiration, being human and other gifts from the process - Sarah Brokke explains.
