The "From the Shores" photography collection features unique, new images captured not only from the Great Lakes - but from streams, rivers, inland lakes and may include important flora and fauna naturally found in these locations.
The showcase image featured at Peaches B&B was captured on Saturday, September 1st, 2012 at Ludington State Park. The unusual cloud formations were a result of the remnants of Hurricane Isaac as they passed over the Great Lakes.
In June 2012, Niedzwiecki served as an Artist-in-Residence at the Hill House - sponsored by ISLAND (the Institute for Sustainable Living and Natural Design). Located in the East Jordan, MI area - the location offered Niedzwiecki close proximity to many waterways. During the 12-day residency, she concentrated on seeking unique perspectives and objects discovered literally "from the water’s edge." Residency Images

Venue & Connection Information
As with Niedzwiecki's previous ArtPrize 2009 and 2010 entries - the venue's offerings will be evaluated - and the final entry will be custom-created and designed to fit that particular venue's space requirements. Therefore, no measurements have been specified at this time.

The 2010 entry consisted of foamcore mounted images, attached to an existing glass block wall with removable Velcro mounts, inside the church conference center.
To see the 2009 design, visit: Michigan Moments
The 2009 entry was canvas gallery-wrapped frameless pieces, attached via fishline over a piece of sheer fabric - to cover up an existing mural in the restaurant.
The final entry may / may not be one image or a series, or part of a collage - based on the venue's decisions.
