The Deo Gallery’s March exhibit features 5 Colors, a Big Maze, and a Shape Named Dave by local artist Ben Pawlowski. As an artist and an educator, Pawlowski has combined these pursuits into collaborative projects that inspire others to create and engage with the exhibit. “Artists are often trying to show or reveal something through their work, which I see as an approach to teaching, and teachers are often trying to provide a unique and memorable experience, which I see as an approach to creating art” This exhibit is the first of its kind at the Deo Gallery. Upon visiting, observers are invited to become participants through personal and collaborative art making.
The Deo Gallery is owned by the City of Marquette and is located in the basement of the Peter White Public Library in the City’s Arts & Culture Center; it is curated monthly by the Lake Superior Art Association.
The Deo Gallery’s exhibit 5 Colors, a Big Maze, and a Shape Named Dave will be up March 5 through April 1. On Thursday, March 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., the City of Marquette Office of Arts and Culture will be hosting the opening reception. Receptions are free and open to the public. Masks are required.
