Local artists Kurt Anderson, Joan Gerigk and Robert Scudder have brought the beauty of Northern Michigan to life in their exhibit of oil paintings entitled, “Images of Up North.”
This exhibit is on display in CTAC’s Atrium Gallery through Friday June 10.
Anderson, Gerigk, and Scudder are all CTAC members who regularly participate in Arts Center programming including the Annual Paint Out and Wet Paint Sale, and workshops and classes throughout the year. Gerigk is also an active member of CTAC’s Kitchen Painters group.
The prime focus of their joint show is people and places in northern Michigan—boat scenes, restaurant scenes, gardens, cityscapes, industrial scenes—anything that captures people at work or play.
All three artists are representational painters with unique styles and techniques.
With their distinct approaches to conveying ‘Up North’ life, Anderson, Gerigk, and Scudder have chosen to emphasize energy and movement for this exhibit.
“The feeling of the show is energy; people doing things, being active. I see this as being a very energetic show!” said Gerigk. “It will be a very interesting show because it does not just showcase landscapes, but more active depictions of Up North life.”
