Event Details


Seven painters with deep ties to Mackinac comprise the Mackinac Seven Art Group: Catherine Brockman, Maeve Croghan, Pam Finkel, Nicki Griffith, Kitty Hannabass, Marta Olson and Pat Pulte. Each member is either a year-round or long-time summer resident. The artists have been painting together since 1994 and began exhibiting together shortly thereafter. The Mackinac Island Public Library has been hosting an annual show featuring the group in the month of August since 1996. Through the years, the members’ individual styles of painting, subject matter, and media have changed and evolved, but the group’s collective commitment to produce and show its very best work continues. Some of the artists paint every day; others paint whenever work schedules permit. All have taken classes and workshops and pursue independent study. Four have art degrees.

Members of the Mackinac Seven Art Group occasionally paint together on the island and also enjoy trips to Canada and other northern venues to paint, to photograph, and simply to talk about art!

Each member experiences the rewards of sharing knowledge, giving and receiving supportive criticism, and encouraging each other on individual creative journeys.

Art work will be on display August 5 thru September 6th.
