Ken Scott
PANORAMIC DELIGHTS OF LEELANAU: COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY
Ken Scott

Having raised his two children near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Ken Scott has found much inspiration there. A self-taught photographer, he started out with a 35mm camera, heavy tripod, either a 24 or 105 mm lens, and a slow slide film (ASA 50). He is now climbing the digital ladder! Scott’s photography is the result of 20+ years of "lots of patience, recognizing the right place at the right time, but not necessarily for the intended image…" He shoots photographs around Leelanau County, Michigan and stitches multiple images together to create vistas beyond what a single image can show.

Fiber Artists CoalitionBLUE WORLD/GREEN WORLD: FIBER ART
Fiber Artists Coalition

Member artists of the Fiber Artists Coalition employ a variety of innovative materials and techniques in the creation of fiber art. The work has a contemporary edge, ranging from representative, to impressionistic, to abstract. The Blue World/Green World collection explores humankind's multifaceted relationship with the natural world. Mining the beauties of field and forest, sea and sky, and mountain and meadow, the work invites experiential reflection on nature's capacity for centering the spirit, healing the soul and cultivating harmony and peace.

Marvin LipofskyPAPERWEIGHTS & STUDIO GLASS
UM-Dearborn Permanent Art Collection

The American studio glass movement started in 1962 with glass workshops held at the Toledo Museum of Art. The workshops, taught by Harvey Littleton along with scientist Dominick Labino, introduced a small furnace built for working glass that made it possible for artists to work in independent studios. The studio glass movement quickly spread north to Michigan, and in 1982, a decision was made that studio glass would be the focus of the University of Michigan-Dearborn permanent art collection, which is housed at the Alfred Berkowitz Gallery. This exhibition is a portion of that collection, spotlighting studio glass art by major artists working in the medium, including Dominick Labino, Marvin Lipofsky and Richard Ritter.
