First Look Preview Party: Water Stories

On Friday, September 30, 2022, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum, MMAM in Winona, Minnesota had a preview night of a new show opening October 1st by Anne Labovitz.












The evening offered  Artist Inspired Spirited and Spirit free beverages provided by the Boathouse and Green Tea Tastings by Curiosi-Tea.










Anne Labovitz had a fascinating talk about art connecting with culture from around the world.  The audience was a reflection of her multicultural welcome—all races, all genders, all peoples.  She talked about art that was using Tyvek, a material used to insulate building by wrapping and the challenges to get paint to adhere to this imperious material.    













Her art is located in two of the galleries at MMAM.  Large abstract painting of the reflections of water and in the 2nd gallery is a huge tent/fort—that’s what we called it as kids.  You could walk inside.  It is anchored from above and allows movement like water to create interest along with the massive size of the art..

A fascinating performance, Atmospheric Intonations, followed the artist’s talk with music by Liz Pearse that Erin Drummond danced.
