Grand Marais Art Colony to offer "Tour d'Art--the Home Collection

Amy Demmer, director of the Grand Marais Art Colony is pleased to announce that the Art Colony will be presenting Tour d’Art: The Home Collection, an exclusive art and home tour fundraiser on Saturday, September 28.

This is a rare opportunity to view some of the North Shore’s most impressive art collections and architecture and includes a look at a home designed by the late Bruce Abrahamson, an award winning architect, as well as the home of the late Paul Granlund, the sculptor’s whose work The Swimmers adorns the Johnson Heritage Post lawn.

A third home, owned by Joan Drury, features artistically designed elements by regional artists woven into every facet of the house. The fourth home has a collection so vast and so eclectic that the homeowners rotate what is displayed.  This retired art history and architecture professor has a phenomenal collection of rare prints, some dating back to the 15th century.  

The tour culminates at the Art Colony with a reception, a lecture with the director of the Tweed Art Museum of the University of Minnesota-Duluth and special exhibit curated by acclaimed artist Hazel Belvo.

Limited tickets are available at $125 per person, reserve your spot in advance by contacting the Art Colony at 218-387-2737 or
