JO WOOD

Corridor Gallery
Reception: November 13, 5 - 7 PM

 

Jo Wood's bead and fiber landscapes celebrate her connection to Nature. They serve as portals to the peace and beauty of Place. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is in the collections of Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul MN and the Mayo Clinics, Rochester MN. Her work has been published in Lark Books, NY 500 Beaded Objects (2004), and Beadwork Magazine, Interweave Press "Stitching a Sense of Place In Beads".

 

Wood was born in Berwyn, IL in 1952. In 1970 she moved to DeKalb, IL to attend Northern Illinois University and study weaving and studio arts. The North Shore of Minnesota has been her home for more than 20 years. Much of that time she lived in a rustic log cabin where she hauled water, heated with wood, and created her intimate scale landscapes in beads.

Morrison Gallery
Reception: November 13, 4 - 6 PM
Sponsored by The Depot Foundation

George Morrison (1919 – 2000) is an international treasure celebrated in institutions in New York, Minneapolis, and Washington DC. Morrison’s understanding of abstraction and its unique connection to natural surroundings made him a leader in the modernerist movement. His deep understanding of the horizon line and its universal appeal allowed his work to connect to broad audiences. The Duluth Art Institute is excited to present a show featuring drawings, notebooks, and source material for Morrison’s masterpieces. This connection to process is part of the mission of the DAI as we look at the act of making art as well as the finished product.
