CALUMET -- New art exhibits will open at the Ed Gray Gallery, Gallerie Bohème, the Vertin Gallery, and the Omphale Gallery and Café on First Friday, June 1, in Calumet

"The Keweenaw Beneath Our Feet" opens with a reception from 6:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. this Friday at the Ed Gray Gallery in Calumet. Featuring painter Susan Robinson and jewelry artists, Julie Jerman-Melka and Julie Sanford, the show honors the geology of the Keweenaw.

Susan Robinson's paintings of rocks are well known to local inhabitants. Julie Jerman-Melka fashions jewelry from Keweenaw bedrock while Julie Sanford creates using local gemstones. This show is a testament to the Keweenaw and its gifts. The Ed Gray Gallery is at 109 Fifth Street in Calumet.

Gallerie Bohème will feature "Meditations," new artworks by Joyce Koskenmaki, from June 1 to July 4, 2012. An opening reception will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. this Friday, June 1.

Gallerie Bohème is located at 426 Fifth St. in Calumet. For more information contact Tom Rudd at 906-369-4086.

The Vertin Gallery will welcome back photographer Eric Munch as featured artist for the month of June.

Munch is known for his black and white photographs, but his current work delves into the world of color. He captures the subtle and unique colors of the local landscape in uniquely beautiful images.

An opening reception will be held from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Vertin. Munch will speak about his current work and answer audience questions around 7:15 p.m.

The Vertin Gallery is at 220 Sixth Street in downtown Calumet.
