Annie Dugan says, if anyone is channeling the voice of the Northland, it's Brian Barber; a voice of quirky, dry, twisted humor, as she describes it.

If some dry, quirky, twisted humor sounds like just the ticket, you can join in tomorrow (Tuesday, February 2) night at 6 pm for Brian's episode of UMD's Visual Culture Lecture Series.

Reflecting on 2020, Annie Dugan acknowledges and offers her appreciation for artists, teachers and arts organizations in our area. "Artists and arts organizations and folks who enjoy art have had to adapt and be flexible, which is certainly one of the things that art teaches us."  She reminds us that art is "a place of refuge, of escape, [but also a place] for working out the problems and the joys in our world."

Draw-A-Long Fun Time

Self-styled "graphiquè artistè" Brian Barber says: "A couple months ago I thought about doing a very short, very silly draw-a-long type series of videos, and this seems like a heckuva good time to give it a shot. Kids are stuck at home, we need something other than Netflix to get through."
