Carl Gawboy exhibit opens at Cross River Heritage Center August 5

On Aug. 5 the opportunity to see a constellation of Carl Gawboy’s migration to a seasoned world of artistic expression begins at Cross River Heritage Center in Schroeder. The exhibition at Cross River Heritage Center includes watercolor pieces from Bois Forte Heritage Center in Tower, Minnesota as well as other private collections.

Gallery pieces for sale include the Voyageurs Bench Gawboy created with fabricator Jay Newcomb.  The Voyageurs Bench is painted on plywood and acrylic and attached to the Jay Newcomb bench. The bench has been on permanent display at the Duluth Pack Store in Canal Park and returned to Newcomb for restorative touches.  It now sits prominently in the main gallery at Cross River Heritage Center.

Ink Drawings from Morton and Gawboy’s Talking Sky will be exhibited at Cross River Heritage Center. On Sunday, Aug. 17 at 1 p.m. Gawboy and Morton will be at Cross River Heritage Center for a Talking Sky book signing.
