The following announcement is paraphrased from

The 61st Arrowhead Regional Biennial features juried art work from the Upper Midwest. It's a tradition established in 1919, and the longest running biennial in the Midwest, featuring some of the best artwork coming out of the region, judged each year by a distinguished guest. This year's juror is Dyani White Hawk. Thirty-three works will be on display and will include an audio installation, prints, paintings, photographs, mixed media installations, a moleskin book, video, weaving, a tunic, colored pencil, and pastel. 

I hope you can make the show. :-)

In addition to the above announcement, below is a photo I'd taken last night at dusk just outside of my kitchen window. I had been watching a mouse, or possible shrew, burrow underneath a small area of raked pine needles next to my spirea plants. As the needles bulged up and down, out popped this bottle-cap-sized wood frog onto my patio. It was so tiny, I thought it was a large spider at first. Anyway, it's probably the case that this amphibian didn't appreciate being pushed out of its cozy little spot by a wandering rodent. With our record-setting warm weather continuing well into November, it shouldn't be too hard for this frog to find another dwelling before cold weather really sets in.
