Two local artists will display work in “Currents of Change,” at the Lanesboro Arts gallery in Lanesboro, Minn., Jan. 7 to March 5.
Linda Ricklefs Baudry of St. Anthony Park and Erik Pearson, whose Shipwrecked Studio is in the Dow Building, 2242 W. University Ave., are part of this companion art exhibit to the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum on Main Street “Water/Ways,” which will be on
display at the Commonweal Theatre events hall Jan. 7 to Feb. 19.
Both shows open with a variety of activities on Saturday, Jan. 7, including an opening reception from 4to6p.m.
“Currents of Change” pairs historical water photos of Lanesboro with mixed media artworks interpreting those photos by 15 regional artists, including Pearson and Ricklefs Baudry.
“Water/Ways” is part of the Smithsonian’s Museum on Main Street program, designed to reconnect citizens to water and encourage more involvement in its protection by using the tools of story, history, faith, ethics and the arts. Lanesboro is one of six small towns and Minnesota is one of five initial states selected by the Smithsonian to participate in this new traveling exhibition.
