The exhibit features artist Kaye Krapohl and photographer Ken Scott and their interpretation of 98 miles of Leelanau coast, which they explored over the course of a year.

For over a year, Krapohl and Scott explored the perimeter of Leelanau peninsula, rising pre-dawn or battling -30 degree temperatures and 20 mile an hour winds for a journey that challenged them on multiple levels: balancing the boundaries of each other’s artistic space, equipment and Mother Nature’s unpredictability. The result: a surprisingly diverse interpretations of each section by the artists.

A portion of sales will support The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay, which advocates for water quality in Grand Traverse Bay and works to preserve and protect its 1,000-square-mile watershed.
