Sept 19 - Nov. 28, 2015

Sept 19, 3 - 6 pm: Artists Reception

North End Arts Gallery, 1323 Broadway, 2nd Floor
Red Mug Corner in Superior

Lynn Anderson, a Chicago area artist with ties to Superior, comes to NorthCoast WI regularly to spend time along Lake Superior’s vast shores and stands of evergreen and birch to reinforce her sense of oneness with all things.

In her work, Anderson abandons the clear focus of the camera and its  literal image to make art that explores dreams of self.

She invites everyone to take a look at the colorful prints and ask the question:  “What do I see here?”  Anderson will be answering questions about her art at the North End Arts Gallery reception on Saturday, September 19, from 3-6 pm. The exhibition is free and open to all.
