IRON MOUNTAIN - Lisa Larson is one of several resident Iron Mountain artists who will be exhibiting at this year's Art for All at Bay West College on Saturday, June 23.
Larson will be showcasing her photography.
Larson's parents, David and Joyce Clement, also of Iron Mountain, encouraged her to begin taking pictures at a young age. Larson's current work is a collection of primarily landscapes and flowers and she says her work is strongly influenced by her time growing up in Maine.
She currently enjoys exploring the Upper Peninsula with her husband and her dog, Jaxson, finding unique photographic opportunities.
She was fortunate to be able to spend time at her in-laws local greenhouse where she developed a love for all the unique shapes and colors of flowers.
Larson has worked in multiple mediums including oil paints, chalk, and charcoal. She has also functioned in Iron Mountain as a freelance wedding videographer and in Florida as a cameraperson for a local television station.
Her true passion has always brought her back to the art of photography. As a photographer Larson is pleased to be able to share her unique perspective through her photographs.
Larson's work will be on display, along with other artists participating in this year's show from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m
Music, live entertainment, and fabulous demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day and a hands-on craft area will be open to children and adults alike. A variety of salads, sandwiches, and other food and drink will be made available by Subway, Crispigna's, Red Cross, and additional vendors.
This year's silent auction has been expanded into two segments: the first set of art items will be displayed for auction in the morning and a second group of items will be displayed in the afternoon for a separate auction.
As always the proceeds from the auction go to provide support for local art programs through the Dickinson County Council for the Arts. There will be no charge for parking or admission.
