Where's Art: Amy Sands at the Nordic Center

This week is laden with events in the Northland, but the first order of business for Annie Dugan was to put out a call to help a fellow art community with a recent setback.

UWS graduate Jessica Turtle started National Heritage Art Center last year in Osceola, Wisconsin. The first exhibition featured Sarah Brokke. This past weekend there was a fire next door at a vinyl record store. Smoke damage has affected the art gallery. “There is a group trying to raise money and help this really important community art center," says Annie Dugan. “We’re sending them our best - and resourses as well.”

The Nordic Center’s first exhibit of the new year is titled “Lines and Lineages” and features work from artist Amy Sands. Sands utilizes digital print technology and gets inspiration from lace, folk designs and Scandinavian patterns. The exhibit opens this Saturday, January 28th from 1-4pm at the Nordic Center in Downtown Duluth. In addition to the exhibit, SunFundays are back at the Nordic Center. SunFundays are opportunity to engage with a crafting activity that typically relates to the exhibit on display. There are three opportunities coming up in February, March and April.

And a reminder from last week’s Where’s Art; tomorrow evening, January 24th, is the opening of the Duluth Fiber Guild's 50th anniversary celebration. Work from Janet Meany and guild members will be on display at the Tweed Museum on the UMD campus.
