MARQUETTE – A juried show, "Artists of the U.P.," will be featured at the DeVos Art Museum at Northern Michigan University May 27 through June 13. An opening reception will be held from 7-9 p.m. Friday, May 27, at the museum.
"This is the first time we’ve done this," said art museum director Wayne Francis. "Hopefully it will become an annual event."
Any artist living and working in the Upper Peninsula can enter the show. Artists can submit up to three pieces of any media from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, May 22, at the art museum. The pieces will then be juried for the show and displayed in the exhibit.
"I’d like to highlight the best of our regional artists," Francis said.
The art museum is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday and from 1-4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
