Cold Snap Blues features thirty-three black and white portraits of Blues artists by Marc Norberg. The archives of Cold Snap Blues span over twelve years of development from the mid 1980’s to the 1990’s. Each photograph is a traditional silver print made in the darkroom. Norberg was recently indoctrinated into the Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame by the Minnesota Blues Society. He was also awarded a Handy for art and photography in 1998 by the Memphis based Blues Foundation.

After eighteen months of development, Curator Beth Shadur announces that the public is invited to attend a unique exhibition, “Convergence: The Poetic Dialogue Project” at the Northrup King Building Art Gallery, Minneapolis, MN, from April 8-10, with a reception on April 10 from 6-9pm. Award-winning Chicago visual artist and curator Beth Shadur served as curator to pair twenty visual artists with twenty contemporary poets, based on the resonance of their work. The current exhibition, which premiered in Chicago at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art in February, is being displayed to coincide with the Association of Writers’ Programs Conference being held in Minneapolis.

Experimental Works between a Dancer and a Painter: DAMNATION photo

Join dancer/choreographer Deborah Elias and abstract painter Barbara Roche in a charged encounter between movement and stillness. Roche’s imposing and dramatic painting “Damnation” provides the emotional force behind this succinct new performance work, the first in a series of experimental works between Elias and Roche.
