Our artist series features local artists who find inspiration in nature. We have reimagined our annual art fair by extending it over a series of five consecutive Sundays, August 23-September 20, to ensure the health and safety of all. Join us each Sunday in the Great Hall to meet the different artists and learn about their process of making art. The artists will have their art available for purchase. Visitors are welcome to hike before or after attending the show, during the time slot in which they are registered.
Here are the two artists featured on Sunday, September 13:
Jose Acevedo creates wildlife paintings, mostly birds, from his Bay View home’s creative workspace. He paints using watercolors, oils and acrylic on canvas and paper. He also works with various species of wood, carving detailed birds and fish and painting them in a realistic-looking manner. Jose’s muse is the natural world because of the variety of form, color and repetitive textures. He’s inspired by leaves on a tree in autumn, the feathers on a bird, or the scale patterns on a fish, which have fascinated him since childhood.
TimberStone Tinker features live edge tables made from recycled wood, jewelry made from Lake Michigan stones and leather bracelets, some with recycled hardware. Production takes place in India McCanse’s wood shop and home studio, and includes tables, cheese boards, and more. She uses a variety of woods, including ash that’s been recycled after the presence of emerald ash borer, as well black walnut, oak, maple, and beech. India believes trees and wood are sacred and serve many purposes. Her work maintains the natural beauty while preserving the dignity of the tree.
For the health and safety of all, attendees must wear a mask when inside the Great Hall. Please do not attend if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus. See our latest COVID-19 updates here.
