About the documentary: Detroit Public TV and Mackinac State Historic Parks takes viewers to Mackinac – Our Famous Island along its many shores and trails to experience the natural beauty of the island, visit landmarks that reveal its earliest history and introduce the people who still work to preserve this special place. There is far more to this sacred island than horses and fudge, and DPTV cameras capture the landscape and beauty while connecting us to the diverse communities and people who have been stewards of Mackinac Island throughout its history.

Artist-in-Residence Workshop with Woodcut Print Artist Jean Gumpper

What makes a woodcut such a fascinating way to represent the natural world? Gumpper’s work explores the many dynamic connections between landscape and the physical process of carving and printing a wood block in a reductive method or layering different surfaces and colors in a monotype. Gumpper can see direct connections with scientific study as well as the layering of water, leaves and light.

This workshop will take place at the Station 256 Conference Room, located above the Mackinac Island State Park Visitor’s Center. This is a free event. #thisismackinac
