Great Lake Prints from Glass Negatives
Prior to 1903, photographic emulsions were made on glass supports called glass plate negatives. This breathtaking exhibit features images drawn from the archival collection of Great Lakes maritime historian Gordon Wendt. Take a step back in time, and experience our region in a way you never have before. The collection includes images of the hardworking boats that plied the Great Lakes: freighters, schooners, passenger boats and the like.
Resident, Family and Staff Works of Art
Resident, Family & Staff Works of Art
This display is a culmination of paintings and photography provided from the community art show at Parkvue. Mediums span watercolors to oil paintings, with some from a resident artist who began painting when she was 70. One of the programs that Parkvue provides to residents is called OMA (Opening Minds Through Art). OMA partners residents who may be living with any type and level of dementia with a volunteer who works with them individually to help them create art. The results have been incredible, and a selection of artwork from different sessions will be represented.
Meeting at the Library for over four years, the Firelands Shutterbugs welcome photographers of all levels on select Saturdays throughout the year. Comprised of experienced and amateur photographers alike, this award-winning group are collaborating to display some of their photographic art. Come see the art, and consider attending a meeting!
The paintings displayed this month are from local student artists who attend the watercolor classes taught by Clela Neale at the Zion Lutheran Christian Center on Wednesdays from 10 am - 12:30 pm. The painters are all ages, skill levels, and use various watercolor techniques. They also paint a wide variety of subjects. There will be an opening reception for them on Thursday, November 1 at 6:30 pm. You are invited to view the paintings exhibited, enjoy some refreshments, and chat with the artists.
