Where's Art

A weekly feature on Northland Morning keeping you up to date on Twin Ports art happenings. Airs Mondays at 8:20. Hosted by Annie Dugan of the Duluth Art Institiute.

Annie Dugan calls Carolyn Olson's work "hot spicy casserole on the coldest day of winter."

Olson has an exhibit opening tonight at the Zeitgeist.

A curated exhibit of photographs from the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon opens at the Great Lakes Aquarium ... and the next Nerd Night promises to be both boring and dangerous ...

  Annie Dugan shares a couple of art events this week in the Twin Ports:

The Guerrilla Girls are bringing their unique brand of sedition to Duluth this week - complete with a free open studio on Thursday for "propaganda/art making," a pop-up exhibition at the DAI's Great Hall on Friday to showcase those works, exhibits at the Gimaajii galleries and the PrØve Gallery, a "progressive gallery hop for social action,"  a dance party and more; then the Guerrilla Girls themselves performing at UMD's Weber Music Hall on Saturday.

Annie Dugan looks forward to the coming year and the many calls-for-entry for upcoming exhibits to which the public can submit their works.

Need a last minute gift idea for your art-loving friend? Want a suggestion of a good book to cozy up with this winter? Annie Dugan shares several ideas of art book options to pick up this holiday season, including:

Get to the Tweed Museum of Art while you still can to enjoy an almost funhouse mirror-like exhibit by Sharon Loudon ... Karin Kraemer and Erika Mock  are holding a studio visit this Friday ...

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.

Annie Dugan shares several art events this week in the Twin Ports, including:

- Tomorrow night's Tweevenings discussion series at the Tweed Museum of Art features Bill Shipley talking about the works of New York Sculptor Leslie Bohnenkamp,

- An art show opening on Friday at The Red Herring Lounge featuring the works of Ryan Lemahieu, Chris Monahan & Esther Piszczek, and

Name three artists you're thankful for.

That's Annie Dugan's challenge this week.

Thursday, Design Duluth takes on the city's "visual identity" and four artists will be talking about "thinking outside the lift bridge."  Friday AICHO opens the show  Asemaa "The Vessel of Creation" and Saturday,  the Tweed Museum hosts a free workshop with artist Sharon Louden.

Prøve Gallery

It's an unofficial Painting Week in Duluth, marked by a lecture at the Tweed Museum of Art by Ann Klefstad on the work of Robert Minichiello, the opening of an exhibit by Shawna Gilmore at UWS, and the "Plys With Purpose”  exhibition and silent auction on Friday of 30 crafted skateboard decks by regional, national, and international artists to benefit skateboard parks in our communities.
