Art in July!
Buy a Mask / Donate a Mask: "The Zeitgeist Community Mask Force Program allows people who are financially able to purchase masks, while providing mask donations to local organizations using a “buy one, give one” model. The makers are using the mask pattern recommended by Essentia Health, employing a variety of fabrics to keep up with demand. All masks are reusable and machine-washable. A children’s size is also available. Donations are headed to local organizations such as the Damiano Center and the American Indian Community Housing Organization. Cost: $10 to buy a mask and donate a mask or donate 2 masks." [Note: Thank you Zeitgeist Arts, Sasha Howell and all the mask makers for making this effort possible.]

"This is the first in a series of virtual panel discussions the Downtown Duluth Arts Collective is co-hosting this summer in the hopes of creating a space to bring the Duluth arts community together to brainstorm about strategies, tools, and insights that might help individual artists, arts organizations and businesses to find new ways to support their art-making pursuits during these complex and challenging times. These discussions will feature a diversity of viewpoints from some of the many dynamic and innovative artists in our community. This activity and operating support is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund."
*** Please join us a few minutes before 5 p.m. as we will try to begin the panel talk right at 5 p.m. Also upon entering the Zoom meeting please be sure to mute your microphone, so we don’t have trouble hearing the speakers. There will be time for questions and we will be collecting comments/questions in the feed also!

Kari Halker-Saathoff: Odysseus & Penelope: The Long Journey, George Morrison Gallery, Duluth Art Institute, Historic Duluth Depot, 506 W. Michigan Street
"Ceramist and illustrator Kari Halker-Saathoff presents the classic story of Odysseus with a reimagined characterization of his wife Penelope. Graphite illustrations are layered with white paper cut outs, backed in black to mirror the ceramic glazing on low fire red clay vessels."
Sue Rauschenfels: Sisterhood, Corridor Gallery, Duluth Art Institute, Historic Duluth Depot, 506 W. Michigan Street
"Working in watercolor and acrylic, Rauschenfels builds forms from organic shapes, vivid colors, and rich textures. The forward-facing figures interact with viewers while standing together in solid compositions reflective of their communities. Stories of kinship and unity evolve from her work, encouraging one to reflect on their own relations."
