Photographs by Mike LaMotte
Mr. LaMotte excels with his sharply-focused,
large-scale digital photographs of storm-ravaged Keweenaw shores.
Mr. LaMotte finds quiet inspiration in the sublime beauty of Keweenaw in winter, and his distinctive images stretch the boundaries of the norm in landscape photography.

Mr. LaMotte also is the co-owner of The Fitz in Eagle River, which serves some of the finest BBQ in the
Upper Peninsula. )

Friday, July 28th 2017 from 6-8pm.

Her meticulously constructed works will complement and comment on the many items that have been part of the store’s collection for over 100 years. Ms. Halonen has explored topics such as genetic engineering in the pharmaceutical industry, and, most recently, the physiological and metaphorical implications of the color blue. Her research-based work has been widely exhibited and was recently reviewed in Artforum magazine.
