A deeply Minnesotan exhibit called Beads opens this week at The Nordic Center in Duluth. Beads brings together beadwork pieces from northern peoples, "specifically the Norwegian Hardanger tradition and the Anishinaabe traditional and contemporary beadwork here in Minnesota,” according to the Nordic Center.
Local artists and art educators Alison Aune, Arna Rennan and Wendy Savage coordinated the show Beads, with items on loan from the Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, Iowa along with contributions from local artists. "Beads" is on view April 26 to May 16 at The Nordic Center with a reception happening Friday, April 26, 5 to 8 p.m.
The Nordic Center is located at 23 North Lake Avenue in Duluth.
