Carbon: Sculptures and Drawings by Ann Klefstad

Dates: May 1 - May 31
Time: cafe hours
(218) 336-1368 • Visit Website

The opening reception of 'Carbon' sculptures and drawings by Ann Klefstad will be at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe. This event is free and open to the public, all are welcome. Artist Statement: “Imagery drawn from the ecosystems of sites has always been part of my sculptural practice??"the forests, the animals, the water. I’ve thought it is important to engage people with the idea of place, and that place is already inhabited, that we live among others. If the imagery has beauty, that can help bond people to place, to make them protective of it. This has been a strong thread in my public art work. Held at 222 East Superior Street in Duluth.

Photograhy and Film Exhibit at Jospeh Nease Gallery

Dates: May 19 - May 31
Time: gallery hours
(218) 481-7750 • Visit Website

The photography exhibition, showing in Gallery A, represents an emergence of new work by local photographer Tim White after a period of reflection following the completion of several large projects including the NEMBA award winning book and exhibition “In and Out of Context.” In Gallery B, the installation film “Permanent State of Exception” by Allen Killian-Moore, “captures images of the present, on a medium from the past, in order to contemplate a possible future.” The film is composed of original footage, gathered over a period of four years in Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Duluth, rural Wisconsin, and along the north shore of Lake Superior. Allen’s sound design features portions of salvaged radio broadcasts taken throughout the last century, while the musical score was written and performed by Andy McCormick, a founding member of the Minneapolis-based ensemble Dreamland Faces.
