The Copper Country Community Arts Center's The Shaft, is a community exhibition on mining heritages held each November in the Kerredge Gallery. The theme this year is How Nature Reclaims. As humans have altered the landscape, how has nature begun to reclaim or weave itself into the remains of mining structures and equipment? Artists are invited to respond to the theme and submit work for this non-juried community exhibit. Deadline for entry to Saturday, October 28 by 1 PM. Entry forms are available at the Copper Country Communnity Arts Center. The reception for The Shaft will be on Thursday, November 9 6-7:30 PM. Cash prizes will be awarded by public choice and will be announced the first week in December. Voting will take place throughout the month of November. This and other CCAC programs are supported in part by a grant from the Michigan Arts and Culture Council with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
