09/21 – 10/8/11 – Grand Haven ArtWalk – Frame and Mat Shop

Come enjoy and vote for Nice Ice – my ArtWalk 2011 entry piece on display at The Frame and Mat Shop in downtown Grand Haven!

I captured the photograph at the Grand Haven pier and lighthouse from the north shore on an evening when the ice was jamming the mouth of the Grand River into Lake Michigan. The very next morning a cutter was employed to remove the ice, so this unique scene really captures a moment in time. The image has been reproduced onto a fine canvas gallery wrap, 24″x36″, and is available for purchase.

Opening Day: Wednesday, Sept. 21 at noon
Reception / Block Party: Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 6pm
Closing: Wednesday, Oct. 5 at noon

For visitors looking to expand their Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize experience, Grand Haven, Michigan, on the west coast of Lake Michigan, is the place to go. A half-hour drive from Grand Rapids, Grand Haven is home to many painters and sculptors, and to a beautiful beach!

Grand Haven ArtWalk takes place from September 21 through October 8, 2011, and will showcase artistic efforts from the local area and beyond.

Schedule of Events

There will be outdoor sculpture along the Grand River Waterfront, in Central Park, and in other locations around town. Paintings, mixed media, indoor sculpture and photographs will be on view in businesses and community buildings throughout Downtown and the Waterfront.

My entry is on display at:

The Frame and Mat Shop
728 Washington St.
Grand Haven, MI 49417
Phone: 616-846-2170

After perusing the streets and considering the art, the public will be able to vote on their favorites. From these votes, the winners in four categories will be awarded cash prizes at an awards ceremony held on Grand Haven’s waterfront at the conclusion of the ArtWalk.
