Russell Prather’s “Rope,” a hanging piece made with acrylic on layers of polyester film, took the $1,000 first-place prize at the Duluth Art Institute’s 61st Arrowhead Regional Biennial last week. Prather is a professor at Northern Michigan University who teaches British literary and visual culture of the 18th through 20th centuries.

The second-place prize, in the amount of $500, was awarded to Keren Kroul’s “Lingering Reflection,” a large-scale, multi-paneled watercolor on paper. The $250 third-place prize was awarded to Kathy McTavish’s “B r 1 n k ::: s t 1 t ch,” an installation of two wall-mounted chrome books.
Honorable mentions were:
- Thomas Rauschenfels’ “Dance with the Devils”
- Shawna Gilmore’s “Watering the Wallpaper”
- Laura Andrews’ “It’s Just Grams”
- Leah Yellowbird’s “Otters”
- Becca Mulenburg’s “Apples for June”
The 61st Arrowhead Regional Biennial remains on display through Feb. 9.
