His motivation began with graffiti on rail cars in Superior’s South End. An artistic mother may have had some influence as well. After traveling both coasts, Jeredt Runions returned home and now creates bright, moving images as an accompaniment to live music performances, often donating the results to support social causes and charities. He brings his talent and art to the studio for a live demonstration as he graces The PlayList as the show’s inaugural, live painter.
It has been said that his soulful, alternative-country music resonates immediately. Local singer/songwriter James Moors’ new release, Skyline, showcases his beautiful, narrative folk-rock style. With his signature, Midwestern sincerity and humble humor, Moors explores layers of our common experiences in song to expose the magic that lies beneath them.
His work is designed to create a parallel symbiotic relationship between audience and art. According to Sean Elmquist, his eye-catching, installation art is meant to challenge the mystique of the ‘Temple of Art’. He invites the viewer in to experience the effect, to entice and to engage. The Tofte native shares the process of creating his latest installation piece, currently on display at the Duluth Art Institute.
