HANCOCK -- In April 2014 a group of artists went on an expedition to Iceland with Bill Schwab, owner of North Light Photographic Workshops. What they saw and captured was a landscape wild and foreboding -- a strange and lovely mix of glaciers, ice floes, sea stacks, cathedral-like geological formations, geysers, geo-thermals, farmland, islands, sea ports and fishing villages.
The exhibition "On Iceland," opening at the Copper Country Community Arts Center Kerredge Gallery on Thursday, Sept. 3, brings together six individual interpretations of a nine-day journey along the southern coast of Iceland.
The artists are Jerry Basierbe, Livonia, Mich.; Julie Bonney, Ashland, Ore.; Cynthia Coté, Calumet, Mich.; Linda Fitch, San Carlos, Calif.; Bill Schwab, Dearborn, Mich.; Darcie Sternenberg, Jacksonville, Ore.
A closing reception for the artists will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25, at the Copper Country Community Arts Center in Hancock. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
The Copper Country Community Arts Center is at 126 Quincy St., Hancock. Call 482-2333 for more information.
