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 artists featured on Sunday, September 20:
Stacy Boettcher and her brother Todd Navone make up Jerry’s Fossils. They strive to bring beautiful and amazing creations of Mother Nature to rock hounds of all ages, everywhere. Stacy and Todd grew up taking trips both finding and trading for specimens. Jewelry made from wire wrapped stones and Orthoceras squid fossils will be available at the art series. Also being offered are incredible fossil formations such as ammonites, trilobites, megalodon shark teeth, and Spinosaurus dinosaur teeth. Minerals for purchase will include quartz, amethyst, selenite and more. The owners believe Mother Nature creates beautiful pieces of art with time that can be cherished for years to come.
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 woodshop 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.
