NEW EXHIBITS OPEN FRIDAY AT NMU ART MUSEUM

MARQUETTE - "Between Stones," a multimedia exhibition by Linda Ferguson, and the paintings of three Northern Michigan University faculty members will be featured at the NMU Art Museum July 19-Aug. 18. An opening reception is scheduled from 7-9 p.m. Friday, July 19, in the Lee Hall gallery.

Ferguson draws inspiration for her work from the emotions of walking a stone labyrinth - a circular path - she built on Lake Michigan in St. Ignace. She calls the labyrinth meditation in motion and a conduit for her own inner awareness.

"The works are a combination of mediums and the tension between their surface applications speak of the energies found in this place, moving energy as a color, light and shadow dance," she wrote. "I believe that sacredness permeates all things and my work is about that spiritual connection. It is about meaning, relationships and the energies that lie between."

In addition to Ferguson's multimedia exhibition, the work of three NMU art and design faculty members will be featured. Thomas Cappuccio teaches illustration, John Hubbard's specialties are painting and print making, and Steve Leuthold teaches art history.

Gallery hours are I I a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
