You might think of "terroir" in terms of wine: it's the "combination of factors including soil, climate, and sunlight that gives wine grapes their distinctive character," according to Merriam-Webster.

But Annie Dugan says art is what makes our Northland "the way it is," and she's encouraging folks to look for the work of local artists as they head into gift-giving season. 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has an online feature art and book nerds need to take note of: MetPublications offers "five decades of Met Museum publications on art history available to read, download, and/or search for free."

Incidentally, the Getty Museum in L.A. and the Guggenheim have also released art books online.

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


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!
