The 2017 summer lineup:

By the Sound of It
Photographs by Mike LaMotte
Mr. LaMotte is probably best known as co-owner of
The Fitz in Eagle River, which serves some of the finest BBQ in the
Upper Peninsula. But Mr. LaMotte also excels with his sharply-focussed,
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.

Mike LaMottes’ show opens June 30th and will be featured through of the summer.

Her research-based work has been widely exhibited and was recently reviewed in
Artforum magazine.
