Duluth Art Institute presents: Terraria Gigantica: The World Under Glass by Dana Fritz

Dates: April 1 - April 29
Time: Gallery Hours
(218) 733-7560 • Visit Website

The photographs in the series Terraria Gigantica: the World Under Glass frame the world’s largest enclosed landscapes as possible impossibilities: Biosphere 2’s ocean in the Arizona desert, the Henry Doorly Zoo’s desert in the Great Plains of Nebraska, and Eden Project’s tropical rain forest in notoriously gray and cool Cornwall, England. These vivaria are enclosed environments where plants are grown amidst carefully constructed representations of the natural world to entertain visiting tourists. At the same time, however, they support scientific observation and research on the plants and animals housed under these ‘natural conditions’ that require human control of temperature, humidity, irrigation, insects, and weeds to cultivate otherwise impossible environments and species. Taken together, these architectural and engineering marvels stand as working symbols of our current and complex relationship with the non-human world.

Duluth Art Institute presents: The Cut Worm Forgives The Plow: Russell Prather

Dates: April 1 - April 29
Time: Gallery Hours
(218) 733-7560 • Visit Website

Russel Prather earned first place in the 2016 Arrowhead Biennial and creates forms from ordinary objects that change radically depending on the viewers line of sight. Layering paper-thin polyester film painted with dots, lines and markings in acrylic medium, Pather’s work is sequential and reads like pages in a book, infusing his study and teaching of literature into his sculptures. Fulbright scholar and English professor at Northern Michigan University, Prather specializes in British literary and visual culture of the eighteenth through early twentieth centuries and is inspired by the poetry and designs of William Blake.

Duluth Art Institute presents: Territory: Emerging Photographers 2017

Dates: April 1 - April 29
Time: Gallery Hours
(218) 733-7560 • Visit Website

The student photographers of the 2017 emerging photography exhibition are creating images because of a compulsion and passion, because the image is how they explore their world and make sense of their reality. Weather plunging into the macro world of fungi, searching for the punctum moment of adventure sports, mining the subconscious for motivation and connection, disrupting digital data, or molding female forms from garbage waste, the records kept in this show are ones of curiosity and experimentation, imagination and skill. Emerging photographers are Riley Loew, Haley Pehrson, Wilson Johnson, Chris Wodicka, Joanna Harms, and Krista Mathes.
