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."

  Opening tonight at Zeitgeist is a new exhibit by area photographer Henry Roberts.

Artist Sue Rauschenfels has a show opening this evening at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe; likewise Shawna Gilmore's Land of Wonder and Ken Bloom's Public Domain open this week at the Duluth Art Institute.

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.
