Two great art exhibitions coming up in July at the MacRostie Art Center, Grand Rapids, Minnesota!
My antler basket sculptures will be partnered with handcrafted wooden furniture by Ely, MN furniture maker, Peter Pestalozzi in an exhibit in the MacRostie gallery entitled “Nature Refined” during the month of July.
And in the Minnesota Gallery will be “Vernacular” a photography exhibition by photographer Gayle Steier from Eveleth, MN

Here’s the press about the exhibits:
Peter Pestalozzi: wood furniture & Cathryn Peters: antler baskets
Inspired and influenced by their surroundings, Pestalozzi and Peters create pieces that are approachable, with familiar aspects for viewers.
Pestalozzi’s furniture creations are based on imagery from kayaking on Lake Superior and canoeing in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. He lives and works in Ely, MN.
Peters combines the masculine element of the antler with the feminine form of the vessel to create her unique antler baskets. Peters lives and works in Angora, MN.
This exhibition will be composed of primarily black and white photographs as well as some hand-colored and monotone photographs printed on paper or canvas. This series of photographs is concerned with stripping away extraneous detail and seeking simple, universal images that exist in this quiet corner of northern Minnesota. Streier lives and works in Eveleth, MN.
As always, our receptions are free and open to the public.
We will also be celebrating Jaime Lawler’s birthday (Finance & Education Coordinator here at the MAC). Make sure to stop by and wish her a happy birthday! (We’ll have CAKE!)
