UP Focus: Bernie Park and Carol Irving
UP Focus is an ongoing exhibition series that highlights artists who are from, living in, or heavily influenced by the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Bernie Park lives and works in Marquette County. Park’s oil paintings investigate the spirit of place and demonstrate a quiet adoration for the Upper Peninsula landscape. Carol Irving lives and weaves in Escanaba Michigan. Irving’s series A Weaver’s Journal of Endangered Wildflowers draws attention to Michigan’s wildflowers and what we are in danger of losing.
