Free Range Film Festival

"All you have to do is turn your easel."

The 36 artists taking part in last week's Plein Air Duluth: Paint Du Nord festival discovered they didn't need to pack up and move to new locations when they wanted to paint a new scene; all they had to do is adjust their view a little. 

Annie Dugan has some festival highlights and is ready to go with a new festival: The 11th Annual Free Range Film Festival this weekend in her big old barn.
