Selections from a Voice Within-Lake Superior Nudes and Horizon Series
“Craig Blacklock - Selections from a Voice Within- Lake Superior Nudes and Horizon Series” will be on display through September 26 in the Tweed Museum of Art. Blacklock is well known for his masterfully composed photographs of Lake Superior and the landscape of the Northland. In this exhibition, the acclaimed photographer presents two more-recent, and less well-known bodies of work. “Photographs from the A Voice Within” series are printed in rich sepia tone, and explore a relationship between the nude human figure and the landscape. “The Horizon Series” focuses on a single element of the Lake Superior landscape, to create large-scale color photographs which approach abstraction in their use of color, light and atmosphere.

Spirals in Space and Time: The Art of Leslie Bohnenkamp (1943 - 1997)
The Tweed Museum of Art will be featuring sculptures from the Bohnenkamp collection August 10 - February 6. Phil Shipley will present a lecture on the art of Les Bohnenkamp at 6 p.m. on September 21 followed by an exhibition reception.

Bohnenkamp’s sculptures, with their intriguing animal-like forms and richly colored surfaces, were well received by critics, collectors, and the general public. A resident artist at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center and the Haystack School of Crafts, Bohnenkamp rode the wave of change from fiber as a “functional craft” to its use as a material for producing bold new sculptural forms.

Art for the Birds
The Tweed Museum of Art features the exhibit “Art for the Birds” through August 22. The exhibition features 60 historical, modern and contemporary works from the museum’s collections, selected by Duluth orintholgist, author, and bird enthusiast Laura Erickson and Tweed Curator/Interim Director Peter Spooner.
Paintings, prints and sculpture works represent many different styles of artmaking and are from different historical periods. Examples include a newly acquired bird-face vase by Pablo Picasso, prints by John James Audubon, paintings by French Barbizon artists Jacques, Daubigny and Rousseau, porcelain bird sculptures by Edward Boehm and Dorothy Doughty, and contemporary artworks by Gendron Jenson, Sterling Rathsack, Sue Johnson, and Native American artist Juane Quick-to-See Smith.

Art for Kids
Art for Kids will be held from10 a.m.- noon August 10 - 12. Children will explore fiber and paper sculptures in Tweed’s new show of works by Leslie Bohnenkamp. Children will also have the opportunity to create their own sculptures.
