Steffl in Steffl Exhibition Reception
Tuesday, January 9, 2024 | 5:00–7:00PM
Duluth Art Institute Steffl Gallery, 506 W Michigan St. Duluth, MN 55802
John Steffl’s breadth of support for the Duluth art community ran as deep and wide as his scope as an artist. For decades, he served and advocated for artists as an educator, an administrator, a mentor, and a curator. He crafted pieces infused with beauty, yet purposeful, spanning from political commentary to subtle humor, and most significantly, reflecting his profound connections with art and the enigmatic realms beyond.
Steffl in Steffl showcases work pivotal in John’s career, including large-scale paintings, rarely-seen ceramics, and his celebrated peony photographs.
Gather to celebrate the creative career of John Steffl in the DAI gallery that bears his name while enjoying appetizers and a cash bar. Much of the work on view will be available for purchase, including select work that may be taken home immediately following the reception.
