TWEED MUSEUM OF ART SCHEDULE
Selections from a Voice Within-Lake Superior Nudes and Horizon Series
Craig Blacklock - Selections from a Voice Within- Lake Superior
Nudes and Horizon Series will be on display through September 26
in the Tweed Museum of Art. Blacklock is well known for his masterfully
composed photographs of Lake Superior and the landscape of the Northland.
In this exhibition, the acclaimed photographer presents two more-recent,
and less well-known bodies of work. Photographs from the A Voice
Within series are printed in rich sepia tone, and explore a relationship
between the nude human figure and the landscape. The Horizon Series
focuses on a single element of the Lake Superior landscape, to create
large-scale color photographs which approach abstraction in their use
of color, light and atmosphere.

and richly colored surfaces, were well received by critics, collectors,

of change from fiber as a functional craft to its use as a
material for producing bold new sculptural forms.
