The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its June LSAA Gallery
exhibition: Thursday Painters, titled “Oldies and Newies, In Memory of Marjorie Carlson
and Betty Schirtz.” This exhibit will feature paintings in acrylics, oils, alcohol inks,
markers and watercolors by Helen Steinhoff, Shirley Michelson, Marjorie Carlson and
Betty Schirtz. The Thursday Painters were organized over 60 years ago.
The SmallWorks Gallery and Peter White Public Library’s Huron Mountain Club Gallery
features work by Kirk Ciaglaski. Ciaglaski was born and raised in southern Michigan and
is now based out of Traverse City. During his younger days, he developed an interest in
skateboarding, which changed the direction of his life for the next 10 years. Through
skating, he was introduced to a sub-culture of art, music and other influences that
impacted his entire perception of life. The friends he made through skating inspired him
to experiment with photography, video, graphic design and painting. Kirk is widely
traveled and has documented stories from his skateboard. The exhibit will include
skateboards, photography and film.
The exhibits will run June 2-30, with an artist reception – held in conjunction with the
City of Marquette’s annual Art Week – on Wednesday, June 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.
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 (906) 228-0472
