Did you miss our most recent segment? View it now! In this September 9th segment you meet two Anishinaabe artists, Duane “Dewey” Goodwin and Simon Zornes.
Duane “Dewey” Goodwin (White Earth Band of Ojibwe) is a sculpture artist residing in Beltrami County and is a current Region 2 Arts Council Anishinaabe Arts Initiative (AAI) Fellow. Goodwin has a long history as artist and arts educator that includes carving, painting and beadwork. His art is a reflective vision of who he is, inspired by his Anishinaabe heritage. His approach to carving is a basic method taught to him by renown sculptor, Allan Houser, during his studies at the Institute of American Indian Arts. Goodwin’s sculptures reflect his connection and passion for the animals, birds and Native American images inspired by his own heritage. His artistic approach begins at times with a dream that greatly influences and shapes his work. Goodwin’s work was recently commissioned by the Sioux Plains Indian Museum in Rapid City, South Dakota for a solo-artist exhibit and is currently available for view and purchase at his local studio in Bemidji MN.

Simon Zornes (White Earth Band of Ojibwe) has been creating sculpture with asin (stone) and mitig (wood) for over a decade. His journey with asinoog (Stone grandfathers/grandmothers) began when his dear friend, Time Stone, and he started finding and playing with unique rock from the moraine region of the Mississippi Headwaters and White Earth Reservation. He has found that each stone holds many stories that access him as their storyteller. One includes the geological saga of its creation and composition over eons. The others evolve from images invoked from within him as a result of the interaction between the stone’s unusual characteristics and the narrative it shares with him. In addition to sculpting, Zornes is a dedicated wild foods harvester – harvesting manoomin (wild rice), gathering and making ziinzibakwad (maple sugar), and growing minomiijim (good food) – all available for purchase.

Mary Therese’s inspiration of her artwork comes from nature’s beauty. Working as a surface designer in her studio on Fern Lake near the small town of Bemidji, she paints with dyes on silk, nylon and cotton fabrics. Playfully, she draws with wax resists (batik) and thickened dyes, sometimes printing with natural objects and carved linoleum blocks to add layers of textures and imagery.Mary Therese’s work is seen throughout Bemidji and surrounding areas in her large murals and installations. It was after the completion of a mural for a private residence that her artistic endeavors shifted into fabric art. Visit her website to see her amazing artwork and to learn more. You can also find her on Facebook and Instagram @marythereseart AND beginning in September 2020 her work will also be available via Etsy.
