GRANITE FALLS, Minn. — Postcards will feature Duluth artist Jonathan Thunder, Fergus Falls baker Jeney Christensen and Wood Lake artist Miles Taylor on its upcoming episode. This program will air on Thursday, March 16 at 7 p.m. on Pioneer PBS.
Jonathan Thunder is a Duluth-based multidisciplinary artist, focusing on painting and filmmaking. Thunder is an enrolled member of the Red Lake Band of Ojibwe and works out of his studio on the North Shore. In this segment, Thunder shares the meaning behind his art.
Jeney Christensen is the owner of Peney Cakes Cupcakery. Hear how Christensen turned her hobby into a thriving business. Based in Fergus Falls, Christensen sells her baked goods online, at pop-ups or out of her cupcake trailer. “Instead of working for the man, I wanted to be the woman,” Christensen said about making the leap to turning her baking from a hobby into full-time business.
Wood Lake-based Miles Taylor works in a variety of artistic forms, many of which involve the use of technology. After he was accepted in 2015 to an exhibition in Krakow, Poland, Taylor was inspired to develop his career as a glitch artist – a relatively new medium which explores intentionally corrupting technology to make art. Additionally, as an experienced DJ and creative organizer, Taylor discusses what it’s like to combine aspects of urban life with the more relaxed pace of life on the prairie.
