HANCOCK -- The Copper Country Community Arts Center (CCCAC) invited community artists to respond to the theme of WATER for an exhibition in the Kerredge Gallery. The CCCAC will donate its portion of the sales to the Keweenaw Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund, which benefits those who are working to put their lives back together after the disastrous June 17 flood. The gallery is filled with paintings, photographs, and drawings, as well as baskets and fiber depicting soothing images of water. The exhibit opened Aug. 14 and continues through Aug. 31.
