KAXE Best of the Weekend Ahead - March 25-27, 2022

Welcome to this week’s roundup of the ‘Best of the Weekend’ events happening around the KAXE/KBXE listening area. This is a great weekend to start limbering up your body for your springtime activities, take in some live music and culture, and maybe even discover some ancient artifacts. There’s plenty to do this weekend, just watch out for thin ice and mud puddles.

Images from Nature: Artwork by Sonja Larsen at the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd

Today is the last day to view “Images from Nature: Artwork by Sonja Larsen” at the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd. Many of Larsen's pieces incorporate imagery of various flowers, leaves, and other botanicals, as well as fish that have been found in the environment around her. She has studied with two Japanese master fish printers, along with several American nature printers, and was invited to participate in a Gyotaku (Fish Print) exhibition in Japan. This is the perfect opportunity to get the anglers in your life interested in the arts. Just please have them wash the scales off their hands before entering the exhibit.
