If you're looking to see some of the most newly featured artwork in the Twin Ports, the Duluth Art Institute is the place to be.

On Monday night, the gallery opened its exhibit for the 2012 Arrowhead Biennial event. It showcases the work of 39 different artists across the Midwest.

One of those featured artists is painter and drawer Ken Marunowski.

Marunowski's work featured charcoal drawings of gritty Duluth landscapes. He said a quick-start grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council made his participation in the show possible, helping to pay for professional framing.

"This is the biggest show for me to date so this is kind of an exciting moment for me, artistically," Marunowski said. "This is the culmination of my efforts so far, and this is pretty exciting for me to actually be out in a nice public space."

Three top awards were handed out at Monday night's opening reception. The exhibition runs through February 10.
