Head out into the snow on Friday night for the Downtown Duluth Arts Walk and you'll find the work of Jay Whitcomb at Prøve Gallery. Whitcomb opened his exhibit "Demons and Angels: Moments of Clarity" on February 8, a collection of introspective figurative works in paint and ink. 

Whitcomb's uncensored demons and angels lay bare the messy complexities of the human condition.  This new show includes dark figures and complicated nudes, drawn from real life struggles.  Painting and drawing has been a part of his art since his youth in an artistic family, continuing through art school to today.

"Demons and Angels: Moments of Clarity" is on display at Prøve Gallery through March 1. Prøve is located at 21 N. Lake Avenue in Duluth and open Thursday, Friday & Saturday 3-7 p.m.

The Downtown Duluth Arts Walk happens the last Friday of each month 5-8 p.m. and is free and open to the public.  A self-guided tour of art venues and events in downtown has grown to include 26 locations, with events scheduled at the Joseph Nease Gallery, 315 Gallery, Duluth Fine Pianos.  Find a full listing participants at the link below.
