Where's Art: Close Looking (and Listening!)

While many are highlighting their Homegrown field guide, Annie Dugan is going to the calendar and circling some upcoming visual arts events in the Northland.

On May 3rd and 4th, The Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art is hosting the 2024 student and instructor exhibition. Located at the rehabilitated St. Peter's church at 810 W 3rd Street in Duluth, Jeff and Brock Larson have created a space for direct learning from experienced instructors. Food trucks and music will add to the experience. More information can be found on the Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art website.

For those looking for a bit of a road trip up the shore, The Split Rock Lighthouse is showcasing landscape and wildlife photographers. Additionally, the work of Natalija Walbridge will be at the visitor's center. Walbridge focuses on large-scale ecosystems and presents them through ornate fiber pieces.

The Homegrown Festival that kicked off on Sunday night might be focused on the music, but the visuals can take any live show to another level. For Annie Dugan, the list of visual compliments during any given Homegrown show is a lengthy one. "The posters that you see... the album art... the moving images... the costumes that they wear... it's just such a wonderful showcase of the creative power that we have in our community."

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