New Slide Show: Art, Culture Oct. - Nov. 2017

By Michele Bourdieu

Ginger Alberti, professional seamstress, and her husband, Mike Sabo, have returned to Hancock from California, bringing with them a new business/craft studio, SewCranky, 322 Quincy Street, where visitors of all ages can learn to sew clothing, art works and useful items with hand-operated antique sewing machines. Check out our slide show for photos of their opening during the Nov. 24 Hancock Walk. (Photos by Keweenaw Now)

From arts and crafts to film and dance, Keweenaw Now's newest SLIDE SHOW presents photo highlights of art and cultural events we attended in the Copper Country during October and November. Here are a few photos from events we included:

Hancock Artist Bridget Riversmith talks about her gouache paintings during the Nov. 10 opening reception for her exhibit "In the Cocoon and Dreaming" at the Kerredge Gallery in Hancock.

Cynthia Coté, founding director of the Copper Country Community Arts Center, is pictured here with her exhibit "Words and Pictures" in the Rozsa Center hallway gallery. The exhibit continues through the academic year.

Also in the Rozsa hallway gallery are some felt art works, like these "Aerial Studies," by Phyllis Fredendall, professor of fiber and fashion design at Finlandia University's International School of Art and Design.

Joe Kirkish, Michigan Tech professor emeritus (Humanities) and well known local photographer and film lover, accepts the City Light Award from Erin Smith, right, 41 North Film Festival organizer, and Faith Morrison, Michigan Tech professor of chemical engineering and associate dean of the Graduate School, on Nov. 4, 2017, in the Rozsa Center.

Dancers in action display colorful regalia during the Oct. 14 Pow Wow at Michigan Tech.
