February Exhibits announced

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its January LSAA Gallery exhibition, “A Love of Nature, Up Close and Personal,” by photographer Scot Stewart. Stewart is a teacher at Bothwell Middle School, having taught science, history, and even photography. He writes a weekly column for the Mining Journal on birds, and about a variety of Upper Peninsula natural history topics for the Marquette Monthly. His photographs accompany his writing and have appeared in a variety of exhibits, magazines, calendars and books. His favorite subjects are wolves, minerals, birds and macro subjects. “The beauty of nature brings a sense of joy and peacefulness we all need,” Stewart says. “I savor the opportunities to immerse myself in that realm and save small parts to share with others, hoping the joy and peace will come to them as well.”

The SmallWorks Gallery features pencil sketches and watercolors of local artist Elsa Clark Clement. A retired science teacher, Clement began to draw just three years ago. Her work is a result of a lifetime observing the natural world. Clement taught at Marquette Senior High School, and was also a lab adjunct and computer coding teacher for her alma mater, Northern Michigan University. A Marquette native, Clement is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Amos Harlow. Parents Lottie and Bob Clark nurtured her interest in science and encouraged exploration. An avid traveler, Clement has experienced wildlife across the globe. Yet, the wildlife of home is her artistic inspiration delicately captured in her first exhibit. Both exhibits will be displayed from Feb. 1-27 with an artist reception on Thursday, Feb. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. The public is invited to attend and refreshments will be provided. The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library.
