  1. Jonathan Herrera: Querida Presencia

    Jonathan Herrera: Querida Presencia

    506 W Michigan St
    Duluth, MN 55802
    Call: (218) 733-7560

    Querida Presencia explores various relationships between collective memory and historical instances of state-sponsored violence and trauma inflicted on politicized bodies. Bodies become politicized by either attempting to dislodge themselves from their dispossessed condition or by their cultural identities opposing a dominant status quo. Within a Latin American historical framework, Herrera constructs print-based objects, installations and environments that echo lived experiences of those who are no longer with us. Print-based process translate the content through symbolically revealing the act of remembering in producing tracings and impressions. Slicing open wounds into wood, burning the surface of lithostone with acid, and the crushing of ink on paper under immense pressure, re-animates acts of violence that carries through an art-object's final presentation.

    Opening Reception and Artist Talk - May10th from 6-9pm.

    Tara Austin: Boreal Ornament

    506 W Michigan St
    Duluth, MN 55802
    Call: (218) 733-7560

    Tara Austin has earned an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in painting. Her early years in Grand Marais, MN instilled an appreciation of botany and a keen observation of patterns in the natural environment. Reflecting on her experiences in the Midwest, South America and Europe, Tara seeks to communicate a form of natural beauty.
    Her paintings are inspired by rosemaling, a traditional form of decorative folk art that originated in the rural valleys of Norway. Incorporating techniques from faux painting and reverse painting on glass, Tara hybridizes traditional techniques with a contemporary perspective. These customary processes became a means for developing a personal aesthetic focused on traditions of geometry, harmony, and craftsmanship.

    Opening Reception and Artist Talk - May 10th from 6-9pm.
