Where's Art

Shannon Cousino/Duluth Art Institute

There will be a closing reception for Shannon Cousino's "little exhibit of big woodcuts" at the Duluth Art Institute on Tuesday, December 10th from 5:30-7pm.

Lincoln Park's Craft District Holiday Market is this weekend: if you can't find what you need with 120 vendors in six locations around the Craft District ... maybe you should just go to lunch instead.

Warrior Printress' Letterpress/Art Exhibit—Opening Reception starts tonight at 5:00pm ... just when you might need a break from shoveling.

Tomorrow (12/3) being Tuesday and all, the Tweevening's get-together at the Tweed Museum of Art is Let's Talk Sculpture with Sterling Rathsack, starting at 6:30pm.

There is a cornucopia of art to see this week, and plenty of activity for you and your relatives to burn off the carbs from Thursday's feast:

Everyday Mayhem, an exhibit of the photographs by Kip Praslowicz at the Kruk Gallery of the Holden Fine Arts Center at UWS.  The exhibit is open now through December 18,

The Downtown Duluth Arts Walk on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.,

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.

Thursday's Give to the Max Day lets Duluthians - well, all Minnesotans - see the non-profit organizations in their communities that are working so hard to make life better for all of us.

Tonight is the opening reception of Umbra, by Terresa Moses at Zeitgeist, and following that, Cocktails & Conversation: Black Womxn Artists.  Moderated by Sandra Oyinloye, Moses will be joined by local artists Kym E Young, and Carla Hamilton in a conversation about their work, perspectives, and experience.

It's Halloween week, and that means there will be a lot of ... strange and disturbing sights through Thursday.

Actually, through the weekend.  The Duluth Art Institute is holding its annual Masquerade Gala Saturday night, and just in case you're worried that might not give your creative expression full range, there will also be a Marilyn Monroe Lookalike Contest at the Gala.

The Duluth Art Institute writes:

Is your inner Marilyn clamoring to get out?

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.
