  • Occupied Spaces: Work by Justin Shull

    Traverse City Cornwell Gallery | January 6 - February 28, 2023

    In his solo exhibition Occupied Spaces, Michigan artist Justin Shull presents a series of personal meditations on the environments that we shape and inhabit, and he invites us to consider how these environments shape us in return. Though the subjects vary within the works, they all reflect on the notion of presence. From suburban alley to fiery volcano, each piece embraces a spirit of celebration and curiosity, asking us to pause and contemplate our relationship with the natural world, our built environment, and ourselves.

  • Entangled: Paper Sculptures from Etching Prints by Dorothy Anderson Grow

    Traverse City Carnegie Galleries | January 6 - February 18, 2023

    Entangled is a solo exhibition of original print work by Traverse City artist Dorothy Anderson Grow. A printmaker working primarily in intaglio, Grow creates nuanced and multifaceted images that emerge from the picture plane to exist in all three dimensions. The work is a celebration of process, color, line, and texture, reflecting the artist's interest in the formalism and abstraction of the mid-1900s. Through repeated formal elements and play with symmetry, Grow's work is somehow both familiar and unknown, encouraging the viewer to follow visual pathways into new something new and unexpected.

  • Kaleidoscope: Recent Work by Lindsey Claire Newman

    Petoskey Atrium Gallery | January 14 - February 25, 2023

    Lindsey Claire Newman's deceptively simple mixed-media collages reflect complex themes of time, creation, deconstruction, and Motherhood. Through expressive textures and layered fields of color, Newman's works are physical meditations on personal experiences that speak a universal language. In her recent work, Newman celebrates the impulsive, insistent need to create -- an approach to making inspired by working alongside her children.
