The Main Gallery

The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center announces its Main Gallery October and November exhibition: Fleet by artist Jason Limberg. Limberg specializes in ballpoint pen and graphite drawing. Previously he has had solo art shows in Indiana and Wisconsin; he produces commissioned drawings, and has been featured in publications such as Juxtapoz Magazine.

Fleet is a collection of drawings influenced by the artist’s fascination with nature, animals, and the passing of time. The pieces displayed will be of an intimate scale while being imaginative, observant and detailed. These works are executed with graphite on paper.

The show will be running from Oct. 1 to Nov. 20, and there will be an artist reception on Thursday, Oct. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m. The City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center is located at 217 N. Front Street in the lower level of the Peter White Public Library. For more information or questions, contact (906) 228-0472 or email arts-culture@mqtcty.org.

About the MACC Lower Level Gallery

MACC Lower Level Gallery

In order to fulfill Marquette Arts and Culture Center’s mission of encouraging and facilitating an enriched environment of creative activity within the city, MACC has provided a visual arts gallery space within the art center in the lower level of Peter White Library.

Exhibitions are curated with consideration for quality of the exhibit, what will be of interest to the community locally, regionally or nationally and suitability of subject matter. Lake Superior Art Association sponsors six of the eleven yearly shows giving their many members an opportunity to display their artwork.

The other five shows are curated by a MACC's resident curator and are varied in media and subject matter. All shows are professionally hung. All displays that the art gallery exhibits are suitable for all ages and will not promote discrimination against any person or group.
