The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay and Gallery Fifty present “Art of the Watershed: Hidden Places Along the Leelanau Coast.” 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.
Please join us for an opening reception on May 21 from 5-8 p.m. at the Mercato at the Grand Traverse Commons, 830 Cottageview Dr., Traverse City. The exhibit runs through June.
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.
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.
About the Artists:
Kaye Krapohl – Light dominates Kaye’s subject matter. Known for her powerful water/landscapes that capture the moody, volatile and peaceful essence of the region’s seasonal beauty and light. Many describe her work as something you don’t just view, you feel.
Ken Scott – An avid outdoor photographer in Northwest Michigan, Ken focuses primarily on capturing the beauty of his home, Leelanau County. Most recently Ken has gained national attention for his new book, “Ice Caves of Leelanau”, which feature some of the images captured during the first few leg of Kaye and Ken’s shoreline hike.
