Where's Art? with Annie Dugan: everything old (like, from 1848) is new again

Jan 6, 2020

Artisan Tax Talk: Not many people are excited about doing their taxes, but when you combine "the artistic personality" with a fairly unstructured occupation, it can become, in the words of Annie Dugan, "daunting, confusing and surprisingly unfair."  Never fear: the Superior Artisans are here with tomorrow's Artisan Tax Talk, an evening with an artist-friendly tax expert to help answer all your questions.

Ladies Drawing Night:  Wednesday, Studio Haiku is holding this chance for you to combine making, thinking, community and cameraderie, with special guest star Tin Cup Design.

January Art Opening Reception: Thursday, the Duluth Coffee Company plays host to the opening of a double exhibition: the work of Alyssa Johnson (Blind Spot Creatives) and Christopher Dunn (Roostertail Ink).

Friends of Ivy Vainio got to share the wonderful experience and she and her husband and a carload of friends headed west to Bismarck, ND on Friday to have their portraits made by artist Shane Balkowitsch for an upcoming exhibit called  "Northern Plains Native Americans: A Modern Wet Plate Perspective".
