Loretta Bebeau was intrigued to find two exhibits in Minneapolis featuring women artists meditating on the importance of water. "Women and Water Rights: Rivers of Regeneration" is at the University of Minnesota's Nash Gallery through March 25, and "WARM Currents," at the Northrup King Building through March 27, is sponsored the Women's Art Registry of Minnesota. Loretta, who's a Twin Cities artist herself and an art instructor, came away amazed at how many women artists have taken up water as a subject.
Carstens Smith is an arts grant writer in the Twin Cities. Carstens says the art of storytelling is boiled down to its essence by Cheap Theatre. The company stages storytelling performances at the Black Forest Inn in Minneapolis, based on a theme. For the event on Saturday, March 20, the theme is hunger.
Ann Klefstad is ecstatic that the esteemed Johannes Quartet will perform at Pilgrim Congregational Church in Duluth on Tuesday, March 23, at 7:30pm. Ann, who is a Duluth arts writer, is particularly excited about the evening's adventurous programming, which includes pieces by 20th-century composers Leos Janacek and Gyorgy Kurtag. The concert is part of the Matinee Musicale series in Duluth.
