UP Focus: Ritch Branstrom and Joyce Koskenmaki


Jul 13 2009 - Aug 14 2009

The UP: FOCUS series is an annual exhibition highlighting artists who live in or are heavily influenced by the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This year’s exhibition features two artists who take inspiration from nature in very unique ways.
Ritch Branstrom is based in Rapid River but his playful found object sculptures are seen in public places across the U.P.
Joyce Koskenmaki, based in Hancock, creates drawings and oil paintings that are realistic in style yet hint towards something hidden or mystical. Curated by DeVos Art Museum Director Melissa Matuscak.
