ArtsMinded column: It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Good grief, the snow is here! But lots of holiday stuff to do is right here in River Falls without much driving (and not to leave our close neighbors out, Hudson too). Below are closeby ideas for celebrating the holiday — and for...

ArtsMinded column: Holiday giving to the arts
A cornucopia of arts graces life here in the St. Croix and Mississippi River valleys. There's no time like the present to acknowledge the breadth of these offerings and add your support to the efforts that keep our communities strong, creatively and economically.

ArtsMinded column: Todd Bol inspired generosity, creative thinking
Let's hold Todd Bol in memory like a well-worn, favorite book. The creative, loving entrepreneur who invented the Little Free Library project to honor his late mother, is held in the hearts of many, a magnificent legacy himself. A Hudson resident, there were by the time of the 62-year-old's...

ArtsMinded column: 'Intersection of recycled materials with whimsical imagination'
Sometimes an artist's journey stretches credulity. Such is the case of a recent theft of Hastings, Minnesota, artist and sculptor Dale Lewis' 160-pound recycled steel crocodile absconded from an art walk in St. Cloud, Minnesota, in late July 2018. It was recovered, in apparently...

ArtsMinded column: RF should be considered one of "Our Towns"
Art's House news: Greeting Card Boutique finished Saturday. However, I'm sure that if you didn't spend all your change at Art on the Kinni — and if you still need greeting cards, some will be in stock when Art's House opens next Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

ArtsMinded column: As summer turns towards fall
Well the lazy, hot, dry days of Summer 2018 are coming to a close (a couple more dry days first, I understand). It has been a fine summer with fine arts concerts, exhibits, performances sponsored by CAB, the River Falls Public Library, the University and other summer specific events....

The 2018 River Falls Days is, for most locals, a thing of the past. For a short time, lawns on Main and Second streets are free of blankets, stones and other markers for locals to view the parade. And, once again, shoppers and those who want to hear Music in the Park and access...

ArtsMinded column: The artsy rites of Spring continue
There is no place like River Falls in the summer! Make no mistake about it, in the South where I grew up, we loved the endless summer — as long as we could escape it some. Remember, we didn't have air conditioning in our house—or any other houses when I was growing up....

ArtsMinded column: The difference between art fakes and forgeries
Things seem rife with prevarication these days. I came upon a story in www.news.artnet.com by Henri Neuendorf concerning fakes and forgeries in galleries and museums, world-wide. It begs to be divulged to our culturally savvy region if, for no other reason, than artists and arts...
