Lake Michigan photography exhibit to open in December
Exhibit features six local photographers
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan Fine Arts Gallery will showcase six local photographers and their work featuring scenes of Lake Michigan in all its glory throughout all seasons of the year in its next public art exhibit in December and January.
An opening reception with the artists has been planned for Friday, December 7 from 5-7 p.m. in the gallery, located in the UW-S Fine Arts Building. The public is invited.
Many of the photographers are members of the Sheboygan Camera Club. All of the photographers have contributed to an upcoming book, Lake Michigan: The Wisconsin Shore. The 100-page book includes images of the lake and its surrounding flora and fauna, with deer in the dunes at Kohler-Andrae State Park, the Sheboygan lighthouse, surfers, eagles, sunrises, sailboats, and scenes from Kenosha to the Door Peninsula. During the opening visitors will have an opportunity to purchase the book and have it signed by the artists.
The group of photographers includes Aaron C. Jors, a self-taught photographer and proud resident of Wisconsin. He travels extensively throughout Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota to capture and witness nature’s wonders and rare moments.
John Dankwardt is retired and explores and discovers the beauty of Lake Michigan through his photography.
Lisa Lehmann is the owner of Lehmann Photo Art. She lives near Lake Michigan with her husband, two cats, and a poodle who loves to walk along the shore with her every day.
Ron Klunk is retired and lives in Sheboygan and enjoys the beauty of Lake Michigan.
