Reception: The CATS on the Prowl
May 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A reception to meet their artists for “The Cats on the Prowl: A Superior Adventure.”
The Cats — Leelanau painters Jane Ditri, Mary Fuscaldo, Candace Petersen, Sue Quinlan, and Barbara Reich — traveled to Wawa, Ontario three years ago to paint some of the same iconic landscapes made famous by the Group of Seven. The seven men, sometimes known as the Algonquin School, painted the rugged Canadian wilderness from 1920 to 1933, exploring through their painting the unique character of the Canadian landscape. During the course of the six day trip, the Leelanau painters traveled Lake Superior’s eastern shore, and revisited many of the sites made famous by the Group of Seven.
