Ready to venture out to a safe art venue? We have a great group exhibition in store for you. Opening March 26, through June 26.
We look forward to your next visit.
Tara Austin, brand new small paintings paired with recent paintings on paper by James Brinsfield – compare patterns and influences. A grouping of two recent and one new striped, geometric paintings on aluminum by Matthew Kluber – follow the lines and bask in the warmth of their sunshine-colored palette.
Enter a separate space, with three quiet and contemplative works each, from David Bowen and Cary Esser. See how Esser’s wall-mounted ceramic Parfleche pieces balance with Bowen’s carved polystyrene translations of sea and sky. And view a separate video from Bowen on how he makes his carved pieces and the source of their shapes.
Our main space features a projection of a recent, dual-frame film by Allen Killian-Moore interpreting Tia Salmela Keobounpheng’s summer 2020 project in Duluth about her Finnish heritage. On an adjacent wall are three photographs by Tim White in a warm palette. Both White and Killian-Moore share a common interest in analog methods and a non-pristine view of the world.
Invited Duluth artist Elizabeth (Liz) James is a well-known ceramic artist in the region. We feature one of her beautiful wall installations that have not been exhibited previously in Duluth. Her wall installations are inspired by landscape and composed of many individual pieces.
Kathy McTavish debuts a version of her new animated, sound, and word piece “blue atlas,” which is an accompaniment and interpretation, in part, of the poetry of Sheila Packa about northern Minnesota and the Iron Range. We will display a looped version with sound of her multi-part work and make available access to it on its native web presence.
