Virtual opportunities to enjoy art abound again this week with a couple of in-person chances as well.

A Warm Reset is still up at the Joseph Nease Gallery, and Saturday at 1:00pm, there will be a Meet the Artists event.  You do need to register in advance for a designated viewing time; more information about that is available on their Facebook page.

Friday, the Nordic Center is offering folks the opportunity to enjoy their Himmeli: From Finland to Minnesota with Mary Erickson exhibit either in-person or virtually.

Mary Erickson and Alison Aune will be talking about the resurgence in interest in this Scandinavian folk art (this is an interesting web site) of creating geometric mobiles from rye or wheat straw.

Mariah Reading is a hiker and self-described eco-artist who operates on a completely different level.

She "creates impressionist paintings on trash in order to depict the harms of pollution and climate change," and you will absolutely want to check out the galleries on her website.

One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
