Statewide Fine Arts Competition and Exhibition More than 100 Michigan artists submitted up to three works each for this year’s competition. Artists from Traverse City, Grand Rapids, the Detroit area, and the local Jackson area competed for a spot in the popular exhibit. Thirty-two artists and 39 works of art will be showcased during the opening reception on January 12 from 2:30-4:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public, with awards given at 3 p.m. The theme for the 2013 Statewide Fine Arts Competition is the “Power of Portraits.” Portraits can convey more than a likeness. They can speak volumes about the sitter as well as the artist. Whether realistic or abstracted, 2-D or 3-D, portraits mirror the world in which we live by capturing us in a specific moment in time. Michigan artists were invited to imagine, construct, and create their idea of a portrait. Awards with monetary values are as follows: Best of Show ($1000), two Exceptional Merit Awards ($750 each), two Merit Awards ($450 each) and one 3-D Merit Award ($450). Juror Thomas McMillen-Oakley is the Lead Faculty for the Studio Art Department at Jackson Community College. McMillen-Oakley received his M.A. from Spring Arbor College; a B.Ed from the University of Toledo and in 2004 was named the Michigan Art Education Association’s Higher Education Art Teacher of the year.

Ella’s 2013 Statewide Fine Arts Exhibit Reception for 2013 Exhibit January 12, 2:30-4:30 pm Awards at 3 pm

Walter Koelz: The Last Great Victorian Explorer An exhibit telling the story of Walter Koelz and his expeditions is opening January 17 in the Emmet and Pyron Galleries. Walter Koelz, born in 1895 in Waterloo, Michigan, was a zoologist and collector who acquired many artifacts on his world travels. Koelz was a member of the MacMillan-Byrd Expedition to Greenland in 1925. With his traveling partner, Rup Chand, Koelz also journeyed to and collected in Tibet, India, Persia and Nepal numerous times from the 1930s through the 1950s. Walter Koelz documented

his travel and work in South Asia and in the Middle East, as well as his life in Michigan, both before and after traveling abroad. With artifacts borrowed from the University of Michigan’s Museum of Anthropology, the Ella Sharp Museum will display objects that show the scope of his collecting career. The exhibit includes cultural and religious objects as well as birds and plants from central Asia that Koelz collected for the University of Michigan. In addition, the exhibit will display tools collected by Koelz on his Greenland expedition.

Letter from the Executive Director, Charles Aymond

Looking to the future ist exhibit from the Reading Public Museum in Reading, PA this fall. This summer we are going to initiate a new art education program for underprivileged children that we hope will add a whole new dimension to their lives. We are looking at how we can expand our service to the community with our Saturday Series (see p.3) and our Patio Parties to show the entire community that “THE ELLA IS FOR EVERYONE.” We have so many ideas for the future that we find it difficult to accept, even though we know we must, living within the constraints of our budget.

Happy New Year! 2013 promises to be an exciting one. We are going to have some spectacular exhibits this year, as well as new outreaches in art education and a wide variety of community events. We received a grant from the State that will pay for a substantial part of the cost of redoing Farm Lane, and once we can raise the balance of the needed funds, we can make our grounds safer and more aesthetically attractive to our visitors. We’re also going to have a new Executive Director, and while that person hasn’t been chosen yet, I do know that some highly competent people have applied for the position. I also know the Search Committee would like to make their selection in early January and let you know as soon as they can. While I feel like most people my age and wish I were ten years younger, I’m proud to turn over the reins for this great organization and unique community asset.

Maybe the most exciting part of the Museum is the one that is most often ignored, and that is its people. I can’t begin to tell you how much my life has been enriched by the staff, the donors, the volunteers, the Board, the Friends and the visitors. Yes, you have made my job a true pleasure but more importantly, you have made this a wonderful Museum. Thank you.

While we have always tried to offer interesting and thought-provoking exhibits, this year we will go over the top with the two opening exhibits (see page 1) as well as an incredible Civil War exhibit this summer -- and a fabulous American Impression-

Since the Clock Gallery’s opening in 2011, many new clocks have been donated or loaned to the Museum. The 10 Howard clocks remain in the gallery. These clocks, five banjo style and five figure-8 timepieces, were created by prominent and successful clockmaker, Edward Howard (1813-1904). Howard clocks of these two styles were first manufactured in 1842. This unique collection is all origi-

Andrews Gallery of Wildlife Art

Janet Katherine Rosetta Artist Janet Katherine Rosetta, who goes by her last name, Rosetta, lives in Loveland, Colorado. In the 1970s and ‘80s she was involved in graphic arts, creating logos, packaging designs, and trademarks for international corporations and advertising agencies in the San Francisco Bay area. Her pursuit of sculpting came about as an artistic trade with a friend who is a painter. He would paint a portrait of her if she would do a sculpture for him. He never finished her portrait, but she entered her sculpture of a cheetah in a regional art show and took top honors, including a sizable monetary award.

From that point, Rosetta switched from graphic design to sculpting. Her job was being phased out by computers; the local university art department, where she had made her winning sculpture, encouraged her to continue sculpting. Rosetta uses a stylized technique. Her unique depiction of a mountain lion illustrates her ability to create sharp edges, but still use the smooth contours of the animal’s body. In Mountain Fishing, Mountain Lion, a feline is perched on a rock, focusing in-

The large bronze mountain lion appears poised, waiting for the perfect moment to grab his next meal. The sculpture displays the elegance, patience, and energy of a feline.

Floor Cloth Painting Workshop Instructor: Sharon Sunday Saturday, January 19, 9 am–4 pm Member $70/ Non-member $85 Floor cloths make wonderful gifts, and are inexpensive to paint. We will explore a few techniques to create a unique design of your own. All you need is the canvas floor cloth, acrylic craft paints, and a metal straight edge. Dress casually as we will be working with paint. Bring a sack lunch, a towel, and a plastic bag to take your cloth home. Supply list will be sent via e-mail.

Digital Photography For Cowards (Beginning Digital Point and Shoot & SLR users welcome) Instructor: Kate Lambert Lee Saturday, February 23, 1–4 pm Member $25/Non-member $35 This course is designed for the hobbyist who wants to simply learn to better use their camera. Settings on cameras can be confusing. Learn the camera settings from one of the experts. Kate’s experience as a camera repair technician and photographer gives special insight on how to use the settings and make sense of them. We’ll also study some easy tips in composing, and you’ll get some ideas on how to take better pictures of your kids, your grandkids, and your travels. Handouts will be provided.

Get over your fear of flash, and take your photography to the next level. This will be a smaller class with limited enrollment.
