Marquette, Michigan, artist JoAnn Deuel Shelby will use her Glen Arbor Arts Center residency to document Leelanau County plant biomes – their biological communities – and then contrast them with those native to the Upper Peninsula. Shelby’s investigations will be used to create eco-printed papers and fabrics that allow her to interpret and illustrate changes in climate. Shelby will talk about her project during a public presentation May 26, noon, at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. The presentation is free.
Since the 1990s, the GAAC has welcomed visiting artists who want to immerse themselves in their work. The GAAC’s Artist-in-Residence program offers up to seven, creative practitioners a two-week respite from their daily lives in order to focus on a new idea that needs space, or to develop an on-going project.
