ZUMBROTA — Opening June 17 and running through July 29, a new exhibit featuring the work of Marie Panlener and Mel Tudisco will hang at Crossings at Carnegie. Panlener, who lives in St. Paul and is the current president of the NorthStar Watermedia Society, has been working in watercolors since 2009. "The paints themselves vary in transparency and granularity, and mixing them creates a seemingly endless supply of variables. I sometimes paint abstractly to remove reality from the equation and focus on just what the paint is doing," she said.
On Tuesday, June 13 at 7 a.m., West Avenue will be closed. The closure will be between West Fourth St. and West Sixth St. due to Xcel Energy's gas main replacement project in the area. A signed detour will be posted via West Fourth St., Dakota St. and West Sixth St. The gas utility work should be completed in the area on June 13 and the road will be reopened when the work is complete. Weather delays and unforeseen site conditions may also delay the reopening of West Avenue, especially since the weather forecast is showing the potential for strong, spotty thunderstorms.
