More Local Art Seen: Sterling Rathsack and Adam Swanson

Two local venues that offer good food accompanied by good art on the walls are the Red Mug in Superior and Pizza Luce in Duluth's Tech Village. Friday during my lunch hour I took a peek to see what's on the walls this month at Red Mug where this month's featured artist is painter and sculptor Sterling Rathsack.

I'd been impressed by a show of his paintings a few years back in the SCFTA gallery upstairs in the same building here at the corner of Hammond and Broadway.

From his Parian Series, Sterling Rathsack. 

Adam Swanson's paintings at Pizza Luce are as colorful as ever. Next time you're downtown, be sure to take a few minutes to sip your favorite libation and engage the art. Actually, if you've not ever done it, they have a great brunch menu on weekends that we have frequently enjoyed.

Next time you go out to eat, notice your surroundings. When you ask for a blessing on the food, give thanks for the artists who helped create the environment you're enjoying it in.
