The William Bonifas Fine Arts Center located in Escanaba, MI is a hub of creativity in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. They offer workshops, classes, theatrical productions, and exhibitions featuring a variety of artists. Exhibitions are free of charge so take advantage if you find yourself in the area. 

Northern Exposure Exhibition at Bonifas

The Northern Exposure Regional Art Competition is an annual extravaganza that brings together artists from the U.P. region for an exhibition and competition to increase attention to their work. This year $3,000 in prizes were awarded in addition to press and media coverage. 

Beth entered a piece titled "Nocturnal" for the show and received one of three Arts Network Awards. which can be viewed through December 21 at the Bonifas. Nocturnal is displayed alongside an intriguing collection of works from other artists around the region and is definitely worth a visit! 

Nocturnal Metalwork Piece by Beth Millner At Northern Exposure Art Show

Unlike most of Beth's work which is flat, "Nocturnal" has multiple 3-D layers of silver, brass, and copper. The concept plays off the predator/ prey relationship. The color variation across the horizon of this piece was done using a patina to mimic the night sky. Little gold flecks were added as stars. If you are intrigued by the piece, you can stop in our shop after the holidays to see it in person! 

Art in the Upper Peninsula continues to grow and is supported by the thriving creative community and events like this. Attending and sharing such events are great ways to show your support and allow the artists of your community to continue creating. 

If you make it out to the show before it closes let us know what you think! And as always stay updated on all the latest lovelies via our Facebook and Instagram pages updated daily.
