True North Quartet to Perform
8th Annual Chamber Music Concert
Erickson Center for the Arts
Curtis, MI

Erickson Center for the Arts in Curtis,
presents a chamber music concert at
7:00 PM Monday, August 7th.

This program features the “True North Quartet,”
a string quartet group from
the Ann Arbor area,
performing a program entitled
“A Night at the Movies.”
Violinists Paul Lundin, Karen Donato,
and violist Joseph Deller return
for their eighth year playing together
for the Erickson Center.
Katri Ervamaa will be the guest cellist this summer.

Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings”
has been heard in many movies over the years.
True North will perform the entire quartet
from which this excerpt comes,
the Quartet opus 11.
Movie composers owe much to the
pioneers of movie music in the 1930s.
Among those greats was Erich Korngold
whose film credits include the original
“Robin Hood”, “Captain Blood” and many others.
Korngold’s Second String Quartet will top
the evening off with soaring melodies and a very wild waltz.

ERICKSON CENTER FOR THE ARTS
PRESENTS ITS 5TH ANNUAL PARK ART
 “CLOTHESLINE ART”
 
Three years ago, visitors from all over the Midwest
made their way to the
Erickson Center for the Arts (ECA)
to witness the first annual Park Art.
The new tradition began with an
exhibit known as the “Peaceful People.”
 
“After receiving a great deal of positive feedback
we decided to carry on this
tradition as an annual exhibit,”
said Kelly Chamberlin, ECA President.
“We hope it continues to draw visitors to
stop and discover both the Center and the town.”
 
In the years that followed, Park Art has included
a vibrant display of wooden kites
and “yarn bombing”, the art of using yarn to
adorn the trees and fencing in the park,
and a whimsical display of decorated bicycles
was a delight for locals and visitors alike.
Last year the ECA was spinning with color
as handmade pinwheels turned with the wind.
 
Now 2017 "Park Art" is up and beautiful!
"Clothesline Art" has been created by
our wonderfully talented volunteers
to dance in the wind and add a
splash of color and fun to the ECA Park.
Come see over 20 hand painted,
billowing "canvases" on the lines!
Park Art will be on display until September 2nd.

 
The "Vision between the Lakes"
exhibit at the Erickson Center for the Arts
Waterfront Gallery offers works of art
from three Northern Exposure Featured Artists:
Tracey Anderson, Ben Bohnsack, and Carol Irving.

See weaving, woodblock printing, and scratch board art
skillfully crafted by the three talented artists.
The exhibit will be on display June 5th- September 5th 
and open to the public Monday-Friday
during regular business hours.
 
Detroit born, Carol Irving moved to the
Upper Peninsula of Michigan at the age of 24.
She’s woven many things, but nothing
gives her more pleasure than rugs and rug weaving.
She weaves her richly colored yarns
on a loom much the way people
have been weaving for centuries. 
Each rug is a totally unique piece of American Craft.
 
After a life-long experience as a do-it-yourselfer
and woodworker, and making practical items like furniture and toys,
Ben Bohnsack found a medium that
fit his interests and experience.
He creates images of reality and
imagination with his woodblock prints.  
Printing by hand through the primitive and
repetitious process of carving, inking,
printing and carving more, always using
two or more blocks, every print is original and unique.
 
Tracy Anderson has a deeply ingrained
love of nature that she attributes to growing
up in the forests of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
She is self-taught in her scratchboard
and encaustic art. Through the use of her
chosen medium, she creates art that is pleasing to the eyes,
uplifts emotion, and stirs the soul.


Curtis B-I-N-G-O
Bingo starts up again on Thursday, June 8th at the
Township Community Building on Davis Street. 
Doors open at 5:30 pm and Bingo starts at 6 PM. 
Bingo will be held every Thursday through the rest
of spring, all of the summer and into the fall!
