SPARK! An Exhibition of Artists Under 40

June 16-25, 2017 | Juried by Jimmy Linenberger and Jenee Rowe

In June 2017 the Northport Arts Association presented its first ever 'age show' for artists ranging from 18 to 39 years old. I had the honor of directing this first ever exhibition and presenting the selected works at the Northport Village Arts Building. I asked Jimmy Linenberger, co-founder of Cirque Movement, and Jenee Rowe, owner of Breakwater Company, if they would be our jurors for the exhibition to which they both gladly agreed. SPARK! was sponsored by FREENJOY, the production company of Nathan Scherrer, Grammy-winning producer of Beyoncé's "Formation" music video, and supported by a generous grant from the Leelanau Township Community Foundation. Over $1000 in prizes were awarded at the SPARK! opening reception.

Artists included: Brad Allen, Joshua Anderson, Ivy Baillie, Nathan Bildeaux, Wesley Bond, Jeffrey Brown, Katie Deady, Annie Lang Hartman, Maia Hausler, Leah Kellenberger, Olivia Kinker, Max Lambert, Meara Louise, Allison McPhail, Megan Moreno, Matt Nester, Teal Newcomb, Paul Olsen, Riley Palmer, Matt Papi, Nick Preneta, Emily Resick, Lara Schaberg, Tara Stoffel, Kristy Tompkins, Adam VanHouten, Sarah Verschueren, and Lydia Keen Woodruff.

Borealis Gallery

In April 2017, Matt Papi and I opened Borealis Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Northport, MI.
