The Ludington Area Center for the Arts will host two exhibitions during the month of March.
“Michigan Landscapes: Shutter, Brush and Mud” by Karen Clark Antrim and Deborah Clark and “The Tapestry of Days Long Past” by Eden Ünlüata-Foley will be on display from March 5th through March 25th.
“Michigan Landscapes: Shutter, Brush and Mud,” will be on display in the center’s main gallery and features numerous pieces of landscape photography, scenic watercolor images and ceramic creations.
“The Tapestry of Days Long Past”, Foley’s interactive 3-D artwork, will be on display in the lobby’s gallery in the downtown showroom.
“LACA has been showing monthly since July,” said LACA Executive Director Andrew Skinner. “The exhibitions are open to the public during the week and people have been coming throughout the week to check out the exhibitions, a maximum of six at a time.”
Skinner said that there will be a closing reception for both exhibitions and that LACA will accept reservations.
“People can make a reservation to enter the center at a certain time,” he said. “We are doing this so that 15 people can come in for 15 minutes with the idea that people will be here for 30 minutes because we have two exhibitions.”
The artists’ reception is from 5 pm to 8 pm, Friday.
Antrim is best known for her Raku ceramic animal sculptures inspired by imagination, her garden art and she returned to painting in watercolor, where her career in the arts began, according to a LACA press release.
Clark lives on a cliff overlooking Lake Michigan in Manistee. It was there that her photography flourished and she won numerous awards at West Michigan exhibitions.
Ünlüata-Foley is an artist, educator and interdisciplinary designer based in Ludington. His work focuses on the formation of cultural identity and its relationship with the place, the feeling of belonging, memory and personal stories.
Both exhibitions will be on display from Tuesday, March 2nd, until Friday, March 26th, and open every Tuesday through Friday, from 11am to 4pm.
