APRIL 22, 2008, Birds of the Upper Peninsula”, photographs by Ernesto Scott
The exhibit will run from April 22 to July 13 and can be seen in Newberry at the Singing Dog Art Gallery, part of The Old Bank Collection of Shops, 318 Newberry Ave, Newberry, MI. 906-293-9901/www.oldbankofnewberry.com
Ernesto is a Professor and Chair of the Photography Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His artwork is held in private and public collections in museums and institutions in the United States and Europe.
Ernesto was born in Camaguey, Cuba and raised in Chicago. He has been a working artist since the mid-eighties when he received his Master of Fine Arts degree from UCLA. He and his wife, Patricia, have a cabin in the UP, five miles north of Newberry.
On a personal note; I have had the opportunity to meet Ernesto, his wife and his two dogs! We "met" through my Yooper Yarn site this past summer due to the reporting I was doing on the Sleeper Lake fire. I have also had the opportunity to see at least one of his photos (and you all know by now how excited I get about photography!) on display.
I hope that if you are in the area during the time of his showing that you will make a point to stop by the Old Bank Collection of Shops and view his work!

- A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!
