  16. Winter Songs and Carols

    Comments Off on Winter Songs and Carols

    Manitou Winds celebrates the coming season with a concert of “Winter Songs & Carols,” December 7, 7:30 pm at The Leelanau School, 1 Old Homestead Road, Glen Arbor. An evening intertwining chamber music with song and spoken word, the annual concert is sponsored by the Glen Arbor Arts Center. It’s open to the public without charge.

    The ancient Celts divided the year into a light half (May-September) and a dark half (November- April), seeing the dark half as the beginning. Inspired by this traditional view of the seasons, Manitou Winds created a program of music exploring winter as a beginning rather than an end. The eclectic program will contain both traditional music and original compositions performed on colorful combinations of instruments, reflecting a sense of optimism for what lies ahead in the New Year. 

    Founded in 2014, Manitou Winds is a versatile chamber ensemble comprised of five musicians who perform on many different instruments throughout their programs. In this December concert, Emily Curtin Culler, soprano, and Jan Ross, narrator, join the quintet. For more information please go to GlenArborArt.org, and click on EVENTS. No reservations required.

  21. “Talk About Art” What is an artist’s residency?

    Comments Off on “Talk About Art” What is an artist’s residency?

    The GAAC AIR Collection exhibition also includes two related programs: Friday, November 9: Glen Arbor painter Harvey Gordon, a past chairperson of the AIR
    Committee, offers “A Radical Perspective of Art,” a Brown Bag art history presentation at 12 noon. This event is free and open to the public.

    Sunday, November 11: What is an artist’s residency? A panel of working artists who have all enjoyed artists’  residencies — Margo Burian, Lori Feldpausch and Joan Richmond — talk about how an artist’s residency figures into a studio practice. Presented as part of the “Talk About Art” series. 2 pm in the GAAC gallery. No charge.

    The Glen Arbor Arts Center spotlights its permanent collection of works by more than 40 artists who have enjoyed a two-week residency in the GAAC’s Artist-in-Residence [AIR] program. The exhibition runs November 9 – December 21 at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

    Artists who enjoy a residency in the AIR program often make a gift of work to the GAAC at the end of their stay. It is a practice that was initiated more than a decade ago, and has allowed the GAAC to build a permanent collection and a record of AIRs’ work. This program of artists’ residencies began in the 1990s at the initiation of the late Suzanne Wilson, one of the GAAC’s
    founders. Wilson handpicked visual artists for the program, and found area friends to house them. Today, a committee of seven volunteers administer the program. The GAAC offers seven residencies each year from May to October. A selection of work by Suzanne Wilson will also be part of this exhibition.

    For more information about these activities, go to GlenArborArt and click on EVENTS. In November and December, the GAAC is open Monday through Friday 9 am – 3:30 pm, and noon
    – 4 pm on Sundays.

  27. agriCULTURE: Barnyards and Farmscapes

    Comments Off on agriCULTURE: Barnyards and Farmscapes

    The Glen Arbor Arts Center presents agriCULTURE: Barnyards and Farmscapes, a juried exhibition exploring the interconnections of food, farming and community through the lenses
    of art, architecture, film, history and theater. agriCULTURE opens Friday, September 14 with a reception from 6 – 8 pm. The show runs through November 1.

    agriCULTURE zeros in on the lore and culture of barnyards and farmstead life. Through a series of companion programs, the exhibition acts as a springboard for explorations of the historic role of barns in the region, how agriculture defines the region’s character, what are examples of some current small farm practices. agriCULTURE is supported in part by the Michigan Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    More details about agriCULTURE’s programs and event can be found at GlenArborArt.org. Click on “Events.” The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor.

  28. Fall Fiber Show | Center Gallery in Glen Arbor

    Comments Off on Fall Fiber Show | Center Gallery in Glen Arbor

    Center Gallery exhibits the fiber constructions of three Northern Michigan artists in its final 2018 exhibition. The work of Midge Obata, Holly Sorensen and Elizabeth Rodgers Hill opens with a reception on Friday, September 14, 6 pm – sundown, and runs through Sunday, October 7 at the Glen Arbor gallery located at 6023 S. Lake St.

    The gallery’s fall show spotlights three contemporary approaches to working with fiber: weaving and hand felting, all of it taken into a sculptural, three-dimensional direction. All three artists approach fiber as a material that can be pushed beyond its conventional and utilitarian uses, into the realm of art object.

    Center Gallery is open daily 11 am – 5 pm. For more information go to www.lakestreetstudiosglenarbor.com, or call 231-334-3179

  29. Find Your Park

    Comments Off on Find Your Park

    With more than 400 park sites in the U.S., yours is probably closer than you think. Most Americans have one within 100 miles of their home.

    Today, there are a total of 417 park sites across all 50 states and 5 U.S. territories, including monuments, preserves, lakeshores and seashores.

    That’s 85 million acres of land and waters, 18,000 miles of trails and over 11,000 miles of shoreline to hike, bike, fish, swim or just relax and enjoy the view.

     

    We’re pleased in Leelanau County to call the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore our “Home Park.” With the “Find Your Park” campaign, it’s easier than ever to seek recreation and exploration across the States. 

    For over 50 years, the National Park Foundation, the official charitable partner of the National Park Service, has been protecting and preserving America’s most magnificent and meaningful places for people all over the world to enjoy and experience.

    “National parks should be accessible to all people, so they can relate to them in their own ways. These places offer something for everyone.”

    ~Will Shafroth, President and CEO of the National Park Foundation

  31. Artist Reception | Royce Deans

    Comments Off on Artist Reception | Royce Deans

    Traverse City painter Royce Deans exhibits a new body of working that offers a glimpse into his ongoing relationship with the Leelanau landscape August 31 – September 13 at Center Gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. An artist’s reception to open the show is Friday, August 31, 6 pm – sundown in the gallery.

    “While my work is based on specific places, I’m more concerned about the essence of the place than I am about being completely representational,” Deans said. “I am nearly always in wonder of the natural world around me. Its beauty and balance gives me peace. Many years ago I was much more interested in pop culture and the things that man has created to make living on this planet easier and to keep us entertained. But these accomplishments of man, which are many and are indeed astounding are ever changing, breaking or going out of style.”

    Center Gallery is open daily 11 am – 5 pm. For more information go to www.lakestreetstudiosglenarbor.com, or call 231-334-3179

    Comments Off on Yoga on the Beach – Glen Haven 7-13

    It is time to get your yoga mat or blanket out and head to Glen Haven Beach for Yoga on the Beach! Amy Hubbell is our instructor and there is nothing as soothing as doing yoga on a pristine Lake Michigan beach.

    Amy will lead a session each Friday mornings through August 10. These sessions are held at Glen Haven Beach at 10 AM.

    Yoga on the Beach classes are fun, laid back and suitable for all levels, even beginner yogis. All classes are 60 minutes, and we ask for a suggested donation of $10.

    (50% of donations from classes taught at Glen Haven go to the Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes for a new Accessible Beach Deck at the Maritime Museum Beach!)

    We recommend dressing in comfortable layers and bringing plenty of drinking water and a towel or blanket you can stretch out on. Sunscreen and bug spray are always a good idea too. 

    Glen Haven is a restored port village on Lake Michigan about 2 miles west of Glen Arbor off M109, part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Come down Glen Haven Road until it ends at a big red building (the old cannery), turn right to park in the parking lot, then head toward the water to find us. Donations from classes here will benefit Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes, a volunteer-driven nonprofit that helps keep our beloved national park clean, safe and accessible. Note that classes at this location will be cancelled if the weather is too nasty for yoga. If in doubt call/text 231-866-1451

So if in 3 or 4 minutes I can connect with someone and let them know that they aren’t the only one either, this struggle is worth it.”
