Clogging and Singing Classes with Jill VanderMeer
Message regarding tomorrow’s clogging and then singing classes:
Hi All, Let’s go back to our original time of 6pm for clogging at the Calumet Arts Center. We will be singing this week, come a little before 7pm if you are just coming for singing.
See you there.
Learn mountain clogging every Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m. There will also be a singing class afterwards beginning at 6:30 p.m. All of this for a small donation of $5 per night! Here are a few videos of what they’ve been working on:
Currently on display at the Calumet Art Center in Calumet are 50 quilts from the collection of the late Geraldine Pennington. These quilts were inherited by her daughter Harriett White, and granddaughter-in-law, Kirsten White, who wished to share them with the public this summer. Some of the quilts were made by family members, and many of the quilts were purchased from auctions in the northern Indiana area from the 1970’s through the 1990’s. Many patterns and sizes are represented. These quilts will be on display throughout the month of August. Come in and learn of the history of this collection, and to appreciate all of the hard work and creativity that went in to making these beautiful quilts!

Here are several wonderful photos of our Summer Youth Art Immersion Program students:
We would like to thank Mr. & Mrs. Eric Iversen for their generous donation of 45 oil paintings by Eric. We just have to share some of them here:

The Calumet Art Center is a proud member of the Buellwood Fiber & Weavers Guild and Michigan Weavers Guild!
We are pleased to announce that we are members of the Buellwood Fiber & Weavers Guild. The Guild began with Dorothea Buellwood in Chassell, MI. Dorothea had 17 looms at her home and developed a 17 member weaving guild. It has been in existence since the early 1950’s and has varied in size between 15 and 20 members. They are happy to assist with answers to all who are interested in weaving, as their objective is to continue to support this art form for the future.
