Ways to Connect

As gallery director of both the Talley Gallery at Bemidji State University(BSU) and the Harlow-Kleven Gallery inside the Watermark Art Center, Laura Goliaszewski's day job has her steeped in fine art.   In addition to her gallery director responsibilities, Goliaszewski also maintains the permanent art collections at BSU.  In this Area Voices segment she discusses her job, how art elevates the human condition, the current exhibits at both galleries and the similarities between art and science.  Click on the interview to hear all about it!

Canoeing has long been part of the culture in northern Minnesota and continues to attract paddlers young and old. With summer just around the corner enthusiasts are looking forward to their next adventure on the water.   In  this segment of Area Voices we speak with Harvey Tjader from the Headwaters Canoe Club.  The club kicks off their season of Tuesday night cruises April 24th at Knutson Dam with Jack Gustafson hosting the paddle.

Every first Friday of the month we chat with Katie Marshall from the MacRostie Art Center in Grand Rapids, Molly Olson from the Ely Folk School, and Area Voices producer Katie Carter.  These gals connect us to the various arts events happening around the listening area.  There is a lot going on!  Click on the links to hear what's happening near you! 

The One Vegetable One Community project aims to inspire gardeners of all levels to plant, grow, cook, and come together around one specific vegetable.  The results of these efforts include more people gardening, more people eating healthy foods,  and more people of all socioeconomic levels who have regular access to good food.  This year's feature vegetable for Itasca County is carrots! Jesse Davis from the Grand Rapids Farmers' Market and Carmen Griggs, Itasca County SNAP Coordinator, stopped by the studio to talk about the initiative and of course about carrots!

For the second year, the Nemeth Art Center in Park Rapids is collaborating with the Minneapolis College of Art & Design(MCAD) to create a significant opportunity for 15-18 year old students.  Between now and April 13th, the Nemeth is accepting art submissions for their upcoming student show.  The top sophomore or junior year student in the exhibit will receive a scholarship worth $3,400 that covers all costs associated with the MCAD Pre-College Summer Session.  This opportunity allows for a unique campus arts experience for students considering art as a career.  In addition to the first place scholarship, cash prizes will be offered to the top three artists in the exhibit.
