Zoey Legge

Zoey Leege will be at Blacklist Brewing this Friday, Dec. 21 hosting a reception for her show "Relics" currently on display.  Leege is not new to the arts but went all in with painting after taking an Adam Swanson painting class at the Duluth art Institute last year. 

Evoking a love for Duluth, "Relics" is not only an homage to the industry relics of our past but also a commentary on the natural and constructed landscape we have inherited.

Joe Polecheck Photography will be hosting his first Duluth pop-up show at Hoops Brewing this weekend.  Holiday pop-ups are a great way to connect with local artists and at this is one you can enjoy beer and shopping together.  Other makers, including Superior Blooms, Gnarly Pepper and Heart Petals, will also be on hand on Saturday, Dec. 15, from noon- 5 p.m.
