Where's Art: Winding Rivers and Woven Remembrances

Annie Dugan has her ear to the ground and is happy to share a call for entries. "Or in this case," says Dugan, "it's a call for abstracts." The National Estuarine Research Reserve has been celebrating annually for 13 years with a summit. The event will be a melding together of science and art. "I think that the two connect in so many important ways... at the core is observation." Research and art will be focused on the St. Louis River.
"They’re asking for artists of all mediums and varieties to share how they use, how they interact with, how they are in relationship with this powerful river,” says Dugan. Entries are due at the end of January. Art will be exhibited alongside research papers and presentations.

Next Tuesday, January 24th, the Tweed is opening an exhibition in celebration of the Duluth Fiber Guild's 50th anniversary. Janet Meany (1931-2020) founded the Guild in 1973. After receiving a degree in painting, Meany found her way to weaving. "She had this incredibly mechanical mind as well as an artistic one," says Dugan. The exhibition will display work from Meany, pieces from Guild members, and some historical pieces from the Guild's history.
