Where's Art: Christmas Villages

Superior Street is all cleaned up after the Christmas City of the North Parade, and the Bentleyville Lights are shining bright. The holiday season is in full swing in the Northland. As such, the time for winter villages and markets is now. You can appreciate local artists and artisans at two locations this coming weekend.

In Knife River, the annual Julebyen is open and free to the public on Saturday, December 2nd from 9am-4pm and on Sunday, December 3rd from 10am-3pm. Among the vendors and activities, patrons may notice a light focus on trolls. "You can enjoy the work of Patricia Canelake and all the troll paintings that she's done," says Annie Dugan who also notes that there is a Troll Train during the event.

Also on December 2nd and 3rd is the Duluth Winter Village at the DECC. "This is a huge celebration, lots and lots of vendors," says Dugan who recommends bringing friends. "So much of experiencing art is going with someone."

You can hear Where's Art every Monday morning at 8:20 on Northland Morning.
