Mar 02 2012 - Apr 08 2012

Exhibition tour by the artists: Friday, April 6, 6:00pm, followed by a closing reception until 8pm

The UP: FOCUS series is an annual exhibition highlighting artists who live in or are heavily influenced by the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Susanne Kilpela, Carol Phillips and Russell Prather walk the line between abstraction and representation through imagined scenery and narratives that feel foreign but equally inviting. A sense of wonder and mystery can be found in both two and three dimensions, balancing the light and dark sides of human nature and imagination.

Susanne Kilpela is based in Hancock where she teaches in the Michigan Tech Visual and Performing Arts Department. Carol Phillips is based in Marquette where she is Director of the Liberty Children’s Art Project in Big Bay and Curator at the Marquette Arts and Culture Center. Russell Prather is also based in Marquette, where he is Professor of English at Northern Michigan University.
