DULUTH — On a gray day at Duluth Timber, the plein air painters scattered across the spread of massive wood piles, rusted boats and gravel roads for industrial vistas. Carl Bretzke, an award-winning painter whose style the Washington Post once compared to Edward Hopper, went for an unclaimed view.

DULUTH -- What started as an artist dialogue at the end of April ended with a couple of dozen art aficionados covered in spaghetti noodles and Jell-O. David Moreira, who specializes in screen printing the concert posters seen tacked to bulletin boards around town, had an event on April 28 for his exhibition in the Corridor and Steffl Galleries at the Duluth Art Institute. The agenda included a Q&A, music by local bands and a food fight. “It was the first food fight I’ve had and the first I’ve tried to orchestrate,” said Moreira, who had permission from the art institute and enough
