Annie Dugan, curator and executive director of the Duluth Art Institute, says the Tweed Museum of Arts weekly senior exhibitions are more than final projects: they're a look at what new young artists are thinking and creating about.

The Duluth Art Institute is sending a shout-out to artists: there's an open call for gallery submissions through April 1st; an open call for the Plein Air summer festival (and it's not just for painters, BTW) and Studio 3 West has a call for entries for a show called WTF! A Feminist Art Exhibit.

The Duluth Art Institute offers a workshop on that "most excruciating" task: writing an artist statement. (It's not recommended that you actually use one of these, but they are a lot of fun to read).

A record-breaking 182 artists entered the Duluth Art Institute's Member Show this year, and Annie Dugan has her eye on some new artists to watch.

Friday is Paint Night with Karen Savage-Blue at Gimaajii - and since it's her birthday, it will technically be Paint-and-Cake Night ...

Annie discusses a few events of interest this week:

On Wednesday, January 18 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, the Duluth Art Institute is holding its annual Member Meeting at the Lincoln , although the general public is invited to attend.  Minneapolis artist and writer Andy Sturdevant will be the featured speaker.  His first book, Potluck Supper with Meeting to Follow, was published by Coffee House Press in 2013.  In honor of his book, the Institute welcomes attendees to bring their own hot dish to pass.
