Duluth native Anne Labovitz stopped by the show to talk about a few upcoming art exhibitions in Minneapolis, Duluth and overseas.  Anne was recently named the 2013 Artist of the Year by the Duluth Depot Foundation.

Anne has an exhibition going on in Minneapolis right now called "Layers". Anne tells us that "[Layers] is an all new work...created around the idea of the human spirit," and the works are built up with 100 layers.

"Each layer is one specific human," Anne says as she holds up one of her examples. All of these different humans and layers come together to form one piece on one canvas, which are open for interpretation by each person.

The pieces take about a year to build up the layers, but she does many at the same time. Some of her pieces also incorporate written language, layered over and over, purposefully obscuring the meaning.

If you'd like to see Anne's solo exhibition, "Layers", it is showing through Sunday, March 2nd at the Burnet Gallery in Minneapolis. She also has a permanent display at the Tweed Museum of Art at UMD if you'd like to see some of Anne's other works. And in 2015 she will be involved in collaboration with Duluth's Sister Cities, working together on art through Skype.

You can watch for more info on Anne on her website, labovitz.com, you can learn more about the Burnet Gallery and her exhibition there at burnetgallery.com
