ed animals that include cats, dogs and farm animals. This exhibit features work created after visits to Southeast Minnesota farms. Truax combines traditional ceramic and found natural materials: “Through my work I attempt to create a sense of connection to nature in the viewer, yet through the utilization of abstraction avoid direct connections to specific places.” Watson uses colored pencil in his exploration and execution of secular and spiritual themes. His “regimented rectangles” or “color-on, color-off writing,” drawing technique expands on the already liberating notions of drawing – despite this regimentation.

Service and Sacrifice: Northfield in the Great War – through Dec. 31 – World War I, or the Great War as it was called at the time, was devastating and affected many European countries before the U.S. joined. Northfield citizens, like others in the U.S. and throughout Minnesota, initially thought the war had nothing to do with them. But as the war continued, curiosity and even anxiety took over. Northfield citizens formed opinions and many answered the call to serve. This exhibit, the first in a series of three, focuses on how the Northfield community was affected by and reacted to the Great War.

Oct. 20-22, 26-28, Th-Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm Weitz Theater, Carleton College, Northfield Chicago, 1930s: the “Cauliflower Trust” is making a move to conquer the vegetable trade when petty criminal Arturo Ui concocts a protection racket. After a reign of terror, Ui emerges as an undisputed mob boss. Written in the early 1940s by Bertolt Brecht, the play is a thinly veiled allegory of the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich, told through the borrowed plot of Shakespeare’s Richard III. It is a cautionary tale of unchecked political ambition and power – a reminder for today that Arturo Uis are resistible. Tickets at apps.carleton.edu/curricular/thea/calendar/tickets/.

411 Concert Series: Six Mile Grove • 7:30pm

Matt Arthur • 8pm

Northfield Arts Guild Theater Six Mile Grove is rooted in the energy of Americana rock and the simplicity of classic country music – all delivered with farm boy charm. Tickets: $25, available at northfieldartsguild.org or 507/645-8877 or at the Northfield Arts Guild.

Tavern Lounge, Northfield While best known for his fire-breathin’, footstompin’, rootsy rockin’ performances with Matt Arthur and the Bratlanders, this is a softer and more introspective solo side of this alt-country favorite. Arthur learned to sing by listening to gospel records from Tennessee Ernie Ford and Johnny Cash.

Theater: Love Letters • 7:30pm

Kirk & Low • 8-11pm

Paradise Center for the Arts, Faribault See theater page. Tanzenwald Brewing Co., Northfield Maya Elena is a singer/songwriter based out of Minneapolis. Spookfolk, jazz-oriented grooves define her situational compositions, harboring a voice like a rattlesnake perpetually fighting a dove. She finds creative ways to connect themes such as self-contemplation, nature, social and politically charged lyrics with healing music wrapped around it.

The Contented Cow, Northfield Musical barnstormers Jim Kirkendall and Stevie Low. One is folk, the other is quite a bit of rock ‘n’ roll. Each presents his own solo set and each draws from a deeper reservoir of experience. Kirkendall spent time as a full-time musician, playing coffeehouses and folk clubs across the U.S. and Canada. Low worked his way across the U.S. and Canada performing in clubs and on concert stages. In 2011 he was inducted into the Iowa Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Buzzards. Expect an eclectic evening of original material and classic covers.

HAPPENINGS Friday, October 20, continued Theater: Love Letters • 7:30pm

Paradise Center for the Arts, Faribault See theater page. Close to You: The Music of the Carpenters • 8pm

Ames Center, Burnsville Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters’ beautiful, memorable love songs topped Billboard charts with more than a dozen number-one hits. Now singer Lisa Rock and her band are bringing the music of The Carpenters back to the stage with their spot-on renditions of Carpenters classics with “Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters.” Rock, a singer and playwrite, has been performing to sold-out crowds for years. Now, she has arranged a six-piece band, complete with back-up singers, and together they are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other. Rock’s amazing four-octave range allows her to sing the hits like We’ve Only Just Begun and Rainy Days and Mondays in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and recognizable. “When she hits the lower range of her marvelous voice,” notes Chicago critic Alan Bresloff, “if you close your eyes, you can see Karen Carpenter’s face.” ​But Rock goes beyond the music in her concert. She draws the crowd in with anecdotes about Karen and Richard Carpenter, their lives and how some of the songs originated. Tickets: $33, available at the Ames Center Box Office, 800/982-2787 or ticketmaster.com.

Doug Foxgrover

Printmaker

In digital work such as Doug Foxgrover’s, there is a layer of mediation (software) between gestures and output. This can sometimes make it impossible to achieve desired results, or create unintended consequences to the work. However, it opens up previously unattainable opportunities for expression. These opportunities can take many forms, and exploring them is often a joyful activity, with occasional bouts of frustration. The bright colors and flowing strokes in this year’s images are expressions of that activity. See more: doug@redwoodblock.com redwoodblock.com

Jill Ewald

Painter

The visual images Ewald paints have to do with mapping. She strives to create work from different geological and psychological/emotional places, work that is informed by movement between time and place. Within this framework, she explores interior and exterior human connections – connections to the self, to others, to the natural world. A trail, a map-like mark, infuses her work with a grounding, and gives it a conceptual time and place. These works discuss light, space, color; they draw on the poetic nature of art. While most of them invoke the feeling of landscape space – broad and/or deep – some are closer to the center of ourselves. Ewald’s goal is for the viewer to spend some time with the art, to bring her or his own memories, experiences, curiosities to the work, wander the pathways, and perhaps find his or her own destination. Her ultimate desire is for the viewer to feel connection to her or his past and present.

Matthew Bunch

Illustrator

Matthew Bunch is founder and owner of Dr. Jellyfish Studios. He’s known for his surrealist/dreamlike art. Every piece he creates is also a surprising 3D experience when viewed with 3D glasses. His art is meant to spark conversation for its amazing color, hidden symbols and, optionally, for its 3D experience. Bunch loves the interplay of color that creates the 3D effect, which he achieves using only Prisma color pencils and Microns ink pens. He uses color pencils with such brilliance that his colors look like oils. He prefers to use only pencils and ink out of respect and adoration for artists of the past, and in order to create his art without the use of modern technology. Bunch’s work can be found on album covers and in homes around the U.S. See more: drjellyfishstudios@gmail.com 507/413-3308 drjellyfishstudios.com

Kathy Miller

Watercolor Artist

Kathy Miller is a watercolor artist who lives in Northfield. Her paintings reflect her passion for the beauty of nature, capturing fleeting moments in time when the magic of light changes the ordinary into the extraordinary. The paintings range in scope from intimate, close-up floral and still life compositions to broad, panoramic landscapes. The use of numerous layers of saturated color, intricate details and patterns, and strong value contrasts combine to enable her to create a highly sensory interpretation of the world she loves. Miller is a Signature Member of the Minnesota Watercolor Society (MWS), and her paintings have earned numerous awards, including Best of Show at the MWS Spring Juried Exhibition in 2013. Also in 2013, Kathy received a McKnight Individual Artist Grant awarded by the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council and completed thirty paintings as part of her grant project. Miller teaches workshops throughout the year in her studio in downtown Northfield. She will be participating again in this year’s Studio ARTour, so stop by to see her gallery of work, as well as to watch her painting demonstrations.
