"(February 1 is) cosmologically centered between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. The date traditionally celebrates the noticeable return of the sun with the agonizingly slow return of life - invisible at first - to our northern region."

Artist Mary Plaster's response to what she calls the  "agonizingly slow return of life" is Illuminations, a month-long exhibit of "large-as-life Minnesota wildlife as whimsical lanterns in symbolic mid-winter darkness."

Sunday, the Artist Talk with Moira Villiard will give folks a change to hear about her artwork and her current exhibition, History of Mahnomen (Wild Rice) and the Anishinaabe.

 The works in this show are part of a series of illustrations for a children’s book exploring the history of wild rice in connection to the Anishinaabe, and within the modern context of sulfide and copper-nickel mining.
