Autumn is here, and just as the change in seasons has a huge impact on our visual world…all our senses, it plays an enormous role in the expression of art. The members of the Copper Country Associated Artist Gallery inCalumetare shifting into autumn mode in many ways. Handfuls of “fallen leaf” pins created by Fredi Tadeucci were brought into the gallery. The group is painting a new batch of silk scarves, and a 2013 Copper Country Calendar by photographer Mark Upton is for sale. Watch for a display in October of autumn scenes produced by the WorldWide PhotoWalk, taking place mid-month with local participants in CopperHarbor.
First Friday in Calumet this October will be a special event, with at least five participating galleries. Clyde Mikkola, long time member of the CCAA will have works on display at the Omphale Gallery.
The CCAA will be hosting a wire pendant workshop for the First Friday activity. Participants will take round reed and form it into a circle, then weave copper wire and small beads into the center to form a small pendant that can hang as a necklace or pin to a shirt; a perfect accessory for your fall attire. The project is suitable for teenagers and adults, and there will be two classes; one at 6:30 pm and one at 7:30pm. The activity is free and open to the public, and donations will be accepted. The CCAA Gallery is located at 205 Fifth Street in Calumet, and you can call for more information at 337-1252.
