A composite portrait is a painting of people melded together to create a very unique image. That is what's currently on display at the Tweed Museum of Art at UMD.

Duluth native Anne Labovitz is the artist behind the exhibit. A reception for the new gallery takes place Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Tweed.

Not only did Labovitz talk about her new exhibition on Good Morning Northland Thursday. She also did a quick portrait of anchor Brittany Falkers to show her process while doing a painting.

Labovitz has been doing portraits for 20 years, she said. Lots of the paintings on display are of family units. Labovitz said she is interested in partnerships and relationships and that the people on each canvas are connected to each other in some way.

The portrait exhibition runs at the Tweed Museum until August 11. A special family day happens Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. Labovitz will be back in Duluth to discuss her work on August 3.
