Art Spotlight: October 2017


So Much Art, So Little Time

With new exhibits, an art tour and artist talks, there’s more than enough art to explore this October. View artwork by more than 40 artists during the Art Along the Lake Fall Studio Tour, taking place at 14 locations throughout Cook County (Sept. 29-Oct. 8). Then, chat with Canadian Inuit and Alaskan Siberian Yupik artists during the Inuit Premiere at Sivertson Gallery in Grand Marais, held Saturday, Oct. 14. And be sure to check out the Plein Air exhibit at Johnson Heritage Post in Grand Marais, on display now until Oct. 29.

Breana’s Pick of the Month 

Grand Marais artist Deke Burnham creates beautiful beaded jewelry, such as rings, necklaces and bracelets. Each piece is different and he even incorporates geodes into some of his jewelry. Burnham is self-taught and began making jewelry about two years ago. His work, “Each Unique by Deke,” can be found at Joy and Company, as well as Ron’s World Rocks, Silver and Gems, both located in Grand Marais.
