David Moreira’s creative voice is part of the music scene, the food scene, and the Duluth scene in general. Moreira’s art takes its roots from distinctive silk screen poster work but his growth has broadened into creating spaces and happenings that engage viewers into a conciously built atmosphere. This spring the Duluth Art Institute is giving Moreira free reign of the Duluth Art Institute Steffl & Corridor Galleries. The opening night event will feature rock bands, spaghetti throwing, videos, and plenty of surprise shenanigans.

Wendy Rouse and Kate Whittaker’s work approaches similar themes with wildly different results. Both artists beckon the viewer towards alternate planes and mysterious spaces. Wendy’s meticulous oil still life and landscape pieces hide other worlds and strange combinations of characters. Kate’s acrylics invite meditation on archetypal themes and push audiences towards alternate planes. The two artists maintain special attention to technique and share a skilled understanding of color, shape, and texture. This firm grounding in the reality of the paint medium allows them to wander into uncharted territory and the viewer can’t help following.
