Carl Gawboy joins Leah Lemm on this episode of Northern Voices

In this episode of Northern Voices, Leah Lemm Talks with Artist Carl Gawboy, who has an exhibition currently on display at the Dr. Robert Powless Cultural Center in Duluth titled "Carl Gawboy: New Paintings, Old Stories" now through May 27th.

Hear the conversation between Leah Lemm and Carl Gawboy as they discuss the artist's "art of the everyday". Here's more information about the episode.

Today, I’m at the Dr Robert Powless Cultural Center in Duluth. I have the distinct honor of speaking with artist Carl Gawboy. Carl Gawboy is from the Bois Forte Band of Ojibwe and is of Finnish descent. He’s a retired teacher and is originally from Ely, MN. Carl’s work over the past decades has incorporated a variety of styles, though the new work he’s created in the last couple years has shifted to what he’s best known for: The art of the everyday.

Lemm's Northern Voices: Celebrating Ties to Minnesota's Northland shares sustainable, traditional, indigenous, and ancestral practices of Northern Minnesotans. Through these conversations, Northern Voices celebrates the richness of individual, organizational, and communal ways of life within the region.
