Art Events Tonight

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the Superior Public Library will be hosting a Love Your Local Artist open house tonight. The public is invited to meet and greet with the artists whose work has been displayed monthly out in the lobby. It also gives the artists themselves a chance to meet one another. The community is invited to meet the artists and see some of their work up close and personal. (Pictured at right, a portion of the February 2010 display case featuring paintings and drawings by Ed Newman.)

In addition to the Superior event there is also an art opening at the Snoodle Ceramic Studio, similarly centered on the love theme. "Love at the Snoodle V" will feature a batch of local artists in various mediums sharing work around the theme Glow in the Dark. If you can't make it tonight, Love at the Snoodle V will be on display throughout the month of February. (In case you're not sure where the Snoodle is, it's down near the Duluth Zoo on Grand Avenue and 71st Avenue West.) Tonight's Line up: 5:00-6:00 open Gallery, 6:00- 6:30 Puppet Show, 6:30-7:00 Fire Spinners, 7:00-8:00 Robi Meyerson, 8:00-10:00 the GRRRL Band

Last night I found it gratifying to learn that the son of a friend keeps wanting to return to Goin' Postal to see my paintings. Not sure if he is an aspiring artist, but it could be a clue that elementary school kids might have to become my target fan base. If their parents would give them a bigger allowance, maybe I can cover the cost of my art supplies.

Meantime, art goes on all around you. Spread the love.
