Art on Exhibit

Don Luce
Northern Waters
Jan. 8 – Apr. 2


Artist statement: I strive to stimulate people’s curiosity of nature, deepen their understanding of how nature works and inspire a commitment to protect the natural world.

I use painting and drawing to reveal the ecological processes that underlie the landscape, and to capture the sense of energy and excitement I feel while exploring nature.

Most of my works depict the waters, shorelines and surrounding forests of the northern Great Lakes region. These places include northern Lake Huron, Lake Superior and the Boundary Waters of Minnesota and Ontario. I try to create intimate views into the patterns of light and shade, liquid and solid, movement and calm, transparency and reflection that can be found in these boreal biomes.
