A Day of Art

I spent most of today meeting with students, but when I wasn’t with young people, I was working in art.

Changes in the Arts Community (and Your Opportunities within It)

A local arts organization is changing its board and its staff, and you can be part of it!

Artists win Awards

When I am not teaching rhetoric, I also volunteer with the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council.

Below is a list of recent award winners. If you see someone you know, congratulate them!

Kathleen Roberts – “On a Prophet”

Video by Dave Richardson for the collaborative art show With Sirens Blaring, coming to the Prøve Gallery Aug. 8-23.

Pudding (The Prøof is in the … )

Visit the new issue of local arts and literature magazine Prøof.

Glad to see the Ennyman and my colleague, the Dean of the School of Fine Arts at UMD, in these pages. Kathleen Roberts gives the Duluth arts community an immense gift in the labor it takes to make this publication happen.

Help with Duplicator

No, I’m not trying to copy myself. I have a Model 70 Conquerer Spirit Duplicator which I am trying to figure out. I have never used one but am interested in how the machine works and would love to get this one back in action. If anyone could share some knowledge or point me in the direction of some good resources I would greatly appreciate it.

Painting the Community: A Portrait of Jeredt Runions

Recent University of Wisconsin-Superior graduate Jessica Prihoda produced this documentary about fellow UW-Superior student and well-known local artist Jeredt Runions.

Prihoda is one of 12 student filmmakers from across the United States nominated for a top award at the Headwaters Film Festival in Bemidji, which was held in April.

Cult screening at Zinema 2 on June 17

If you are into dark and depressing movies (that take place in Duluth) then come check it out! Screenings are at 7 and 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, at Zinema 2. I’ll be doing a Q&A after both shows. It recently played to full houses at the Duluth Superior Film Festival and people seemed to dig it. It is unrated, but the MPAA would easily slap an R on it, so keep that in mind. It is very dark.

Check out the storm sewer art by local artists in Superior

The sidewalks beside six storm sewer drains in Superior are looking good. Six local artists have painted their artwork and are helping spread the message about stormwater pollution. The locations and more information is at superiorstormwater.blogspot.com. Click on the Storm Drain Art tab. Map brochures are available at the Wisconsin visitor bureau in the Bong Heritage Center, Fairlawn Mansion, Superior Public Library, North End Arts Gallery, and the Superior Wastewater Treatment Plant. Take time to visit the sites for some outdoor public art.

Unusual Art Opening

The Sister Mary Charles opening reception drew close to 500 guests at the Tweed on June 4. Local art luminary Ed Newman gives his account here.

Golden Hour trailer

The Minnesota-made short-narrative film “Golden Hour,” screens tonight at Prøve Gallery as part of the Duluth Superior Film Festival. Filmed in just eight days, it features ten different locations across Minnesota, including Duluth’s Park Point.

Film Fest Night 2: Stop the Pounding Heart

Last night was night #2 of the Duluth Superior Film Fest, and I made an evening of it.

I Found Myself Stuck in an Experimental Film

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxI–8-ZtTA

Vincent Gargiulo here with a new short film that I shot in Duluth and Superior last June when I was in town for the Duluth is Horrible premiere. It’s part of my upcoming bigger film, Fantastic but also works as a stand-alone piece. If interested, you can watch and find out more of the bigger film at fearofdisney.com. Enjoy. Rated R for Really Artsy.

The Figures

Happy Homegrown Duluth!  I had to send a contribution from afar. I wanted to premiere my first short film on PDD. It’s a spooky little thing filmed in Duluth during a brief visit I made in 2014. The soundtrack is by myself and Eric Lyman, we record as Pale Wall. This film may be best viewed around 3 a.m. with a warm blanket. Cheers.
