Phantom Galleries branches out

Phantom Galleries Superior is branching out to two new locations next week.

Open receptions run 5-9 p.m. at both sites.

"Glass Exposed" features stained and fused glasswork of letter carrier and artist Patricia Davey, at 1621 Broadway St.

Then swing by 933 Oakes Ave., the old antiques depot, to view "Shift," mixed media work from Sarah Brokke and "Beneath the Surface," acrylic on canvas pieces by Adam McCauley.

"This will be more than a visual art event," said Erika Mock, director of Phantom Galleries Superior.

It features Rachel Nelson, musician and storyteller, who leads a 'Pilgrimage' between the old depot and Habitat. Poet Kyle Elden reads at 7 p.m. at the depot as part of the experience.

The whole night is part of an even bigger picture. Wednesday is Superior Night as part of Visual Arts Week of the North x North Music and Arts Experience, a joint venture between Duluth and Superior to celebrate local arts.

There will be art openings all along Broadway from the North End Art Gallery and Red Mug to the phantom galleries. Along with the new temporary phantom galleries, artists Jeredt Runions and Lydia Komatsu open a collaborative show called "Blood Orange" at the Red Mug Coffee House.

Phantom Galleries Superior is hosting extended open house hours at the 933 Oakes site.

"We are offering an open house to see the art and the building which is for sale and/or for lease," Mock said. Along with Wednesday's 5-9 p.m. reception, the site will be open 5-8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and noon to 3 p.m. May 11.
