ARTISTS IN ROTATION
While You Sleep by Ryan Stephens
In June, photographer and cinematographer Ryan Stephens will display “While You Sleep.” The exhibit explores the night sky and natural wonders of the northern hemisphere, and includes photography from Michigan, Wisconsin, and beyond.
Dark Woods || Sand Kingdom by Laura Reber
In May, “Dark Woods || Sand Kingdom”, a collection of new work by Laura Reber, will be on display in the community space. The exhibit will be composed of two series created this year. Sand Kingdom began as a commission for a friend’s nursery, utilizing animals and colors within her nursery theme. Incorporating sand and gesso into my paint to create undisguised yet fanciful woodland animals quickly became all too fun. One painting turned into three and then evolved into the series it is now.
An ardor for the deep woods and a particular affection for fishing spots around the Upper Peninsula created Dark Woods. A few of the pieces are from favorite outlooks on the Yellow Dog and Carp rivers, while others take form from a general fondness of the texture trees create on the horizon and the way that perception is altered throughout the day. The public is invited to an opening reception on Friday, May 5, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
