Above The Bridge Songwriters Weekend Retreats
celebrate 10 Year Anniversary in Curtis Michigan
June 15-18, 2017 & June 22-25, 2017


A songwriting retreat that took place for the first time in
2008 at Chamberlin's Ole Forest Inn will
celebrate 10 years this June.  
The first session will take place from June 15-18, 2017
and the second session will be June 22-25, 2017.  
The weekend retreats are hosted by
Bud and Kelly Chamberlin at Chamberlin's Ole Forest Inn,
an historic hotel and restaurant in Curtis, Michigan. 

SG and Rachel Wood were the visionaries who established
the first Above The Bridge Songwriters Retreat
in 2008 and the Erickson Center For The Arts
has funded the event each year with
additional sponsorship contributions by
Chamberlin's Ole Forest Inn and other area businesses.  

When the Woods moved out of state in 2010,
songwriting instructor John Latini stepped in as
one of the Weekend Coordinators and has been
on staff every year since 2008.  
By 2014, the retreat which until this point had taken place
only one weekend in June had so many attendees
that it was necessary to expand
to a second weekend the next year.  
In 2015, attendance had doubled from previous years.  
Participants have attended from the
Upper and Lower Peninsula,
but others have come from as far away as
California, Maine, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana,
Florida, Tennessee and Canada.  
 
For the June 15-18 retreat,
John Latini, Annie and Rod Capps, Pat Bergeson,
Sigrid Christiansen, and Jamie-Sue Seal
will be on staff,
and the 2nd session taking place on June 22-25
will include staff members Jan Krist, Jim Bizer,
Whit Hill, Mark Jewett, Jamie-Sue Seal and John Latini.  
 
Songwriters or wanna-be songwriters of
all levels are welcome to attend.  
Weekend activities include open mic time,
workshops, constructive critiques, one-on-one sessions,
electives and song circles.  
The weekend includes all meals, workshops and activities,
and lodging and non-lodging options at different price points.  
 
For more information and to download the registration forms
for each weekend, please visit the
Erickson Center For The Arts website www.ericksoncenter.org

The Erickson Center for the Arts
Waterfront Gallery presents
“Two Perspectives:
The Art of Christine Groleau and Laura Maze.” 

This exhibit will run from April 10th-May 31st and
offers viewers several mediums
including oil paint, photography, and watercolor
created by the Upper Peninsula artists.

Christine Groleau retired from teaching art and
opened her own studio in order to concentrate
more on her personal growth as an artist.  
She attends local workshops,
as well as hosts her own workshops in her studio.
She has concentrated on abstract painting with a
focus on color, and a strong center of interest.

Laura Maze focuses mainly on the process of
her work, but is mindful of the outcome.
Her changing interest in technique,
style, and material allow her to keep
her works of art spontaneous and personal.
Laura is currently in a gold leaf period
with her paintings and prints.

The exhibit will be open to the public
Monday-Friday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.


 Artist Reception
An artist reception will be held
Sunday, May 21st from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
at the Waterfront Gallery
in the lower level of the ECA.

Meet the talented artists behind our current
nature-inspired exhibit, “Two Perspectives”,
Christine Groleau and Lara Maze.

Refreshments will be served and this event is open and free the public.


 **MORNING YOGA SCHEDULE**
Beginning May 8th
Morning Yoga Classes
Erickson Center for the Arts, Curtis
with Marsha Blanchard, RYT
Mondays and Wednesdays
from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. 

ROAD TO CRISP POINT IS CLOSED
 
About three and one half miles from the
Crisp Point Lighthouse
the road is washed out at
Three Mile Creek.
With the spring rain and snow melt,
brush was washed in front of the culverts
where the creek crosses CR-412
in North East Luce County
causing the water to back up and
then breach the road thus washing out the
roadway surrounding the culverts.
 
The Luce County Road Commission
has talked to the DEQ about the proposed plans
for replacing the culvert on CR 412 at 3 Mile Creek.
The LCRC has ordered a 6 foot diameter culvert pipe
as they anticipate their approval of the proposed plan.
 
The new culvert pipe is expected to be
delivered on or about May 24th.
 
The LCRC is hoping to get the road opened by May 26th.
But that depends on final approval by DEQ
and if the stream flow subsides as expected
to allow a safe work environment and
if the culvert pipe arrives by May 24th.
 
LCRC said they will keep us posted if things change
or they get a more definite date for getting the road opened.
 
In the mean time there is no access to
Crisp Point Lighthouse
by conventional vehicle (cars, light trucks etc.). 
Although I do not know the conditions of the roads / trails,
access may be made from the east using trail 8
or from the south off of Tower Road.
I highly recommend these roads only be accessed
with off road vehicles.
DO NOT try them with a conventional two wheel drive vehicle.
