Touted as their most popular show, Michigan Artists Gallery hosts a reception for contemporary folk artists, Jil Johnson and Jesse Hickman, “Saints Are Among Us.”
Hickman has carved several larger-than-life busts of saints of his “own canonization.” “Saints are among us. Saints are everyman. Selfless people with the want and the will to roll their sleeves high and do everything that it takes. Those are who I celebrate.”
A mixed media artist, Jil experiments with all sorts of mediums and surfaces creating delightful oddities in her sculptures and paintings.
Hickman’s Image Shown: Back view photo of Saint Mishomegobing (Saint of Leelanau County). Her shirt says the “Janice Sue.”
Suttons Bay is the sweet little village about 15 miles north of Traverse City on M-22.
