A mid-career retrospective by an Ojibwe artist is one of three that gets its opening reception today at the Duluth Art Institute. Karen Savage Blue’s “Spirit.” Blue challenged herself to create a painting a day for a year and this exhibition will include some of these pieces in addition to others from her career.

Also opening: An exhibition of work by late-artist Karen Lynne Burmeister, a fixture in the local art scene and a popular teacher at Marshall School, who died in 2013 without having publicly shown the collages she created from print publications. Duluth Sister Cities is an exhibition of work by 10-to-14-year-olds who created art to tell the story of Duluth’s culture, economy and activities — which will be shared with the Sister Cities.


What: Opening reception for Karen Savage Blue’s “Spirit,” Karen Lynne Burmeister’s “Life of Beauty” and Duluth Sister Cities’ students ages 10-14

When: 5-7 p.m. today

Where: Duluth Art Institute, 506 W. Michigan St.
