These young photographers may be lecturing you about "the good old days of film" before long.  The Duluth Art Institute's public darkroom will be getting a workout when the Youth Film Photography Club gets snappy Wednesday at 5:30pm

 

Cafe Scientifique Night at Duluth Pottery is Thursday night (September 26) at Duluth Pottery.  Geek out on the science of clay, ceramics and glazes with artist Karin Kraemer.

If it's the last Friday of the month (September 27), it means it's time for the Downtown Duluth Arts Walk.

See how the UWS Art faculty spent their summer vacation in this exhibit of their work ... an opening celebration will be held later in the month.

Enjoy the artwork of Penny Perry, the poetry of Phil Fitzpatrick and even the music of Woodblind tonight at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe, for a book release celebration, art show and music performance rolled into one.

Mn Artists is an on- and off-line home by, for and about Midwestern artists working in all disciplines.

This week, they'll be at the Duluth Folk School on Wednesday to help artists with what can be a daunting creative challenge: crafting an online presence. More information and registration for this free event (but you need to register) is here: Mn Artists Workshop: Duluth

If you want to know what you can expect at the Minnesota State Fair, the first thing to do is listen to Ann Reed's "The Fair" -- or at the very least, read the lyrics aloud.

Hillside Creative Crosswalks/Facebook

Despite a few interruptions for severe weather announcments from the National Weather Service, Annie Dugan was still able to crowd a lot of art into this morning's report.

The severe thunderstorms should be long gone by the time tomorrow's Hillside Creative Crosswalks project gets back to work making intersections in the neighborhood safer by giving folks something to slow down and take a good look at.

Duluth Art Institute

 

Master grant writing and the art of getting residencies with a little help from the Duluth Art Institute and artist Nik Nerburn Wednesday evening ...

And if you want to have a little fun with your artist statement (and get it out of your system before you need to compose a real one) here are a couple of links:

The Downtown Duluth Art Walk turns one this week and Friday's excursion pulls out all the stops.

In addition to music at Blush, as you crawl through the venues, names start dropping: Sarah M. Brokke, Carla Hamilton, Adam Swanson,  Allen Killian Moore, Juliane Shibata, Martin DeWitt.

Annie Dugan is intrigued by things like the tension between acrylic and enamel paints ... but audiences may be more curious about the tension generated when a father-in-law (DeWitt) and his son-in-law (Webster) generate an art show together.

Martin DeWitt and Andrew Webster's exhibit reception is tonight (July 15). 

AICHO

On Tuesday, July 9th, The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council (ARAC) is holding open office hours from 2 to 5:30 p.m., where artists can not only ask for grant writing tips from Holly, their grants manager, there is also great local art on the walls to be seen!

Prøve Gallery

You have until midnight to submit your work to the Prøve Gallery's You Don't Know Me exhibition.  The exhibit will open with a reception on Friday, July 19.

Meanwhile Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota are sponsoring the third Duluth Youth Creative Challenge at their downtown retail center.  The exhibit will be up this week, featuring the work of artists aged 5-16.
