FEBRUARY EXHIBITS: V.I.P.S. AND JAMES KEAST

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its February LSAA Gallery exhibition by Lake Superior Art Association’s V.I.P.S. Artists including Chrys Levesque Hendrick, Gail Mahan, Julie Mowen, Diana Peterson, Susan Roubal, Charlice Stewart, Connie Tonkin and Michele Tuccini. V.I.P.S. stands for “Variety in Painting Styles.” These artists work in a variety of mediums including oil, watercolor, acrylic, pen and ink, mixed media, alcohol ink and collage.

The February SmallWorks Gallery will feature work by fairy tale and folk artist James Keast. A Marquette native, Keast was brought up in a large musical and artistic family. His family spent a lot of time outdoors hiking, fishing and camping and also had an appreciation for other people and their cultures. These influences can be seen in his work. Keast is self-taught and learns from studying other artists and reading. He worked for 10 years as a commercial artist in Southern California and he has also taught.

Both exhibits will be on display Feb. 1-25. There will be a combined artist reception on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. which coincides with Lake Superior Art Association’s Winter Charm reception at the Huron Mountain Club Gallery in the Peter White Public Library, and will included a living sculpture by TaMama Dance Company. The public is invited to attend both receptions. Refreshments will be provided.

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is located in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library. For more information or questions, please contact 228-0472 or email arts-culture@mqtcty.org.
