Water surrounds us in Northern Michigan. And the Glen Arbor Arts Center looks to the Big Lake, the streams, wetlands and ponds for a New View: Water = Life = Art,” an exhibition running June 1 - August 4 in the GAAC gallery, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. New Views: Water is a juried exhibition of 2-D and 3-D work that offers an interpretative exploration of the many ways in which we intersect with water: ecologically, economically, creatively, through the lens of tourism, as a contributor to regional identity, and the basis for a dynamic and enduring creation myth symbolized by a mother bear and her cubs. In addition to the exhibition, New Views: Water offers a full complement of programs that approach the exhibition’s theme from a range of different directions. An artist’s reception to open New Views: Water is Saturday, June 9, 6 - 8 pm. The public is welcome. For more information go to the GAAC website, www.glenarborart.org, or call 231/334-6112.
