The TEXT Show and SNÖBARN

Here's a press release I received this weekend about the upcoming art event at the Prøve in downtown Duluth. Looks like a lot of interesting images and sounds will be on the docket. I'm certain there will be openings at Washington Gallery up the street and at Ochre Ghost down the alley. Hope to see you there.   

Babel, a piece I'd intended to submit.
DULUTH, MN - February 27th, 2013 - A nationally represented exhibition will open March 8th, 2013. Prøve Gallery is excited to open 'Text', which showcases art from 19 artists from all over the country. This exhibition features work that is either text based or incorporates text. The opening reception will include an outstanding musical performance by Snöbarn as well as the musical talent of the DJ collective, Crunchy Bunch.

'Text' will feature a wide variety of art and artists. From Minso Kim's untitled interactive installation that entices viewers to instead listen to what the art has to say to Mark Addison Smith's interactive book 'Red' which allows the viewer to build their own one page experience. This exhibition artists are Ken Kollodge, Catherine L Johnson, Melissa Wagner-Lawler, Tim Kaiser, Molly Roth-Scranton, Apthin Rapp, Minso Kim, Aaron Squadroni, Adam Winnie, Jade Hoyer, Mark Addison Smith, Jan Estep, Hilary Greenstein, William Sattler, Byron Johnson, Jiae Park, Alice Walsh, Kenneth Steinbach, Carolyn Ellis, and Sissorelle Ferox.

Atmosphere and music throughout the opening night will be provided by the Crunchy Bunch with a live performance by local sensation, Snöbarn, at 8:30. Refreshments will be provided by Lake Superior Brewing. This event is free and open to the public
