Adam Swanson

There are several ways to get an art break in your day this week.

One is a real, live, in-person (albeit masked and physically-distanced) art opening, as Adam Swanson's new exhibit at the Great Lakes Aquarium takes a look at animals on the federal threatened and endangered species lists.  The Mirrors by Adam Swanson art reception opens tomorrow (Tuesday, July 28) at 6:00pm.

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."

Chris Dunn

Check out "Duluth Noir," a new summer exhibit from local artist Chris Dunn of Rooster Tail Ink, on view at the Red Herring Lounge. Dunn has created a new body of work in his unique ink drawing style with a series evoking Duluth's urban landscape.  Dunn's work combines thick, lush lines with a quick and light hand, achieved through multiple renderings. Offering many versions of the each work rather than one final selection, sheds light on his process and perspectives.  

Ryan Lemehieu

This week's Radio Gallery's guest is showing his latest work at the The Red Herring Lounge in Duluth. A group show of local artists Ryan Lemahieu, Chris Monahan and Esther Piszczek share their art for the next few weeks.  Chris’s mono prints, Ester’s Zentangle inspired works and Ryan Lemahieu with his water colors and pen & ink drawings are on display through January 5th 2016. The Red Herring Lounge is open every evening at 208 E 1st Street in Downtown Duluth.

Kenneth Marunowski

This week Radio Gallery features one of UMD's own faculty: Dr. Kenneth Marunowksi. Although this renaissance man teaches in the Writing Studies department, he is also an amazing drawer/painter. Marunowski talks with Radio Gallery about his current exhibit at Beaner's Central coffeehouse.
