23rd Annual Gallery Hop, Riversmith and More

A new sculpture by Eric Dubnicka
Let's pretend that it didn't snow last night and that it's not going to snow some more today because tonight I'd like to be able to attend Adu Gindy and Eric Dubnicka's art opening, Dancing in the End Zone. The exhibit will be at Lizzard's Art Gallery & Framing on Superior Street here in Duluth. In the event that you can't make it to the opening, you'll be able to see the work Saturday if you jump aboard the 23rd annual Earth Day Gallery Hop.

The gallery hop has a bit of everything for everyone, including a shuttle so you don't have to think about parking in the various locations. Eleven galleries are involved from one end of town to the other, or rather, from the Duluth Art Institute to the Tweed up at UMD and all points in between. You can catch the full list
in today's Wave (DNT).

Saturday evening there's one more opening to catch, this one at Adeline's Hair Salon, 1132 E 9th St, Duluth, MN 55805.  Adeline herself is an artist and I was able to catch her first event when the salon had its opening there on the East Hillside. This Saturday evening Bridget Riversmith will be showing some of her new work. Riversmith's piece at last year's Steampunk Gala struck me as nothing short of incredible. So naturally, I will do my utmost to make it to Adeline's. The opening is from 7-9 p.m.  You can catch more of her art and creative spirit at RedRabbitRiversmith.com.

And finally, next Tuesday is the launch party and reception for the North x North Music and Arts Experience. NxN is the newly minted name for May arts month here in the Twin Ports. There is so much happening in May that it might do you well to show up even if it's only to grab a schedule of upcoming events. The party and reception will begin at 5:30 in the Zeitgeist Atrium.

Meantime, don't miss the train. It's going to be a very special ride.

Dancing in the End Zone, tonight at Lizzard's.
