Jodie Ahern is senior editor at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Jodie was thrilled to see Highpoint Center for Printmaking’s debut show in its new building called “Excavations: The Prints of Julie Mehretu.” Mehretu is an internationally known painter and printmaker who’s work received early notice from the Walker Art Center. “Excavations” is on view at Highpoint through November 21.

Greg Neidhart is a music professor and directs the arts administration program at Winona State University. Greg expects sparks to fly at the “Celebration of Words, Music and Image,” a collaboration between area poets, folk and classical musicians and composers. They’ll perform Sunday at 7:30pm, at an up and coming attraction in Winona, the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.

James Craven is a veteran actor at Penumbra Theater. James is very impressed with Open Eye Figure Theatre as a company and venue in South Minneapolis. His favorite artistic expressions, dance, music and light, will collide at Mississippi/Volga III, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9th and 10th at 8pm. Mississippi/Volga III will feature performers from Russia, Hungary and Germany working alongside the local avant cello duo “Jelloslave” and the Minneapolis tap and percussive group “Buckets and Tap Shoes.”

Not finding what you want here? Well don’t forget, the St. Paul Art Crawl is this weekend. The Decemberists perform at the State Theatre on Friday. And Stuart Pimsler Dance and Theater presents its latest work “Tales from the Book of Longing,” inspired in part by the poetry of Leonard Cohen.
