Carbon: Sculptures and Drawings by Ann Klefstad

Dates: June 1 - June 30
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.

Exhibition Opening: James Brinsfield, A Twenty Year Retrospective

Date: June 23
Time: 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
(218) 461-8380 • Visit Website

Committed to abstract painting since the 1970s, Brinsfield is a respected and influential painter whose works are in numerous public and private collections including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overland Park, KS, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art both in Kansas City, MO. His career includes 19 one-person shows in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Kansas City. Currently his paintings are on view in two major exhibitions: “Unexpected Encounters” at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and “Anxious Abstraction” at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art. Brinsfield has been a major presence in Kansas City’s thriving contemporary art scene for decades, through his teaching at the Kansas City Art Institute and his singular studio explorations. Brinsfield and Joseph Nease met in Kansas City, MO, where Brinsfield had three solo shows at Nease’s previous gallery which opened in 1998. To the Duluth community and surrounding region, this exhibition provides a unique experience to see a continuum of work of an established abstract painter who has been an important voice within contemporary art. For visitors who are familiar with Brinsfield’s work, the exhibition also provides an opportunity to experience his past work, which remains remarkably fresh and compelling to today’s eye, in a different context alongside more recent paintings.
