I'm honored to have one of my photographs included in Wausau's Center for the Visual Arts' Midwest Seasons show. My photo of a northern lake shoreline that was in the Northern National was also selected for this show. I had titled it simply "On Quiet Waters" for the Northern National thinking that everyone would realize how I had cleverly taken a part of a Sig Olson quote and understand the significance of the quote to the photo.
While I was at the opening I realized that perhaps folks that have Sig quotes memorized are a very small group- nobody seemed to have caught on - so I have changed the title to the entire quote. I thought to myself, "Can you do that, can you title an artwork with someone else's quote?". And I thought probably not. But then I did it anyway.
"At times on quiet waters one does not speak aloud but only in whispers, for then all noise is sacrilege. " Sigurd Olson
The show will run from January 4- March 9th with the opening reception Friday, January 18th. I hope you'll have time to check it out!

I'm based out of beautiful Vilas County near Manitowish Waters/ Presque Isle Wisconsin but wander with my camera throughout the North of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.
