The stakes are high in Shakespeare’s bloodiest revenge play, as staged thru the lenses of “contestants” in this game called Society. What do we stand for? Who do we stand with? How do we govern ourselves in a culture whose predilections for violence and domination steer our tactics? In this hilarious, provoking and sometimes manically terrifying treatment of William Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus are you just here for the party... or are you the next competitor? [less-]

This exhibition is not so much about rocks as it is of rocks. The rocks here are the subject and the environment, the figure and the ground. They have been gathered within the suggestive space of the gallery and photographed against a sanitized white background. None have been cut, polished, or altered from the way they were found. The unique form of each rock embodies an enduring record of the many forces that shaped it. We have tried to downplay or eliminate our own vision and ideas wherever possible, allowing the rocks to stand only for themselves. Nonetheless, certain tastes or tendencies did emerge. Look, and you may unearth layers of representation - from the scientific to the expressive, the sublime to the curio, the signifier to the signified. Some pedestals have been left uncovered so that you can highlight certain rocks or arrange specific groupings yourself. We encourage you to interact with them and discover your own connections. After the exhibition, the rocks will be returned to the places they were found. We hope that when you leave here and return to your own places, you will take with you a new awareness of the way you look at rocks, how personal taste evolves, and of the reciprocal nature of vision and representation. Christine Lenzen Christine Lenzen (b. 1984 Minneapolis, MN) is a visual artist that uses photography, sculpture, and collage to explore the cultural implications of the photograph. She received her BFA from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and her MFA from the University of Notre Dame in May 2012. Lenzen is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, MI. She has recently exhibited at the Sculpture Center in Cleveland, OH; The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO; and RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, CA.   Taimur Cleary Taimur (Tim) Cleary grew up standing over a compass rose on the shore of Lake Michigan. Indeed, some say he is there, still. Taimur painted as a child, and has found various ways to maintain the habit; including an undergraduate degree in painting and photography at Miami University, and a MFA from Pratt institute. He has received a range of grants, awards and residencies as an artist and educator. Currently, he paints and teaches full-time as an Assistant Professor at Northern Michigan University, in Marquette Michigan. [less-]

Have you ever wondered what is really going on beneath the surface of your favorite music? Do you wish you could hear into the music, hear it skillfully? Would you enjoy having an awareness of how music is constructed and what makes it "great?" Beginning Monday, October 30, retired NMU professor Floyd Slotterback will present a six-session "how-to" in becoming a skilled music listener.  Classes run from noon to 1:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room.  After 40 years of music teaching, Floyd will share his enthusiasm and teaching skills to help you know what it is you are hearing, and how to organize an appreciation for it. Becoming a good listener is possible if you know how to listen for and recognize structure. All great music (pop to jazz to classical) is built by the composer out of recognizable chunks of meaning. With no music reading skills, you can learn to hear and organize these chunks. You will benefit more from the sessions if you have paper and pencil. Bring a friend and "have your ears cleaned!" You will never listen to music in the same way again. The class meets weekly Mondays 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/27, 12/4, and Wednesday 12/6. It is open to the public at no charge and no registration is required.    Call 226-4318 or visit www.pwpl.info for more information. [less-]

Gurney’s Love Letters.  There will be three performances in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room:  Thursday, October 26 @7:00pm; Friday, October 27 @7:00 pm; and Saturday, October 28 @2:00pm.  Seating is general with doors opening 30 minutes prior to each performance.   Love Letters stars Jeff Spencer as Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Monica Nordeen as Melissa Gardner.  Childhood friends, they become romantically entangled over the years as they exchange letters throughout their lives, beginning with thank you notes and summer camp postcards, growing into informative letters sharing the details of their lives.  Although physically apart, they share a rare intimacy which is often funny, always touching.   LOVE LETTERS was presented at The Long Wharf Theatre, November 4, 1988 – December 11, 1988; m. Edgar Rosenblum, Executive Director; Arvin Brown, Artistic Director.  It is now being presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.   Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the circulation desk at the Peter White Public Library or over the phone by credit card at 906-228-9510.  Tickets may also be purchased at the door, cash only.   This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Peter White Public Library, the Carroll Paul Trust Fund of the Peter White Library, and the Iron Bay Restaurant & Drinkery.  For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 228-9510/226-4318.

Have you ever wondered what is really going on beneath the surface of your favorite music? Do you wish you could hear into the music, hear it skillfully? Would you enjoy having an awareness of how music is constructed and what makes it "great?" Beginning Monday, October 30, retired NMU professor Floyd Slotterback will present a six-session "how-to" in becoming a skilled music listener.  Classes run from noon to 1:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library’s Community Room.  After 40 years of music teaching, Floyd will share his enthusiasm and teaching skills to help you know what it is you are hearing, and how to organize an appreciation for it. Becoming a good listener is possible if you know how to listen for and recognize structure. All great music (pop to jazz to classical) is built by the composer out of recognizable chunks of meaning. With no music reading skills, you can learn to hear and organize these chunks. You will benefit more from the sessions if you have paper and pencil. Bring a friend and "have your ears cleaned!" You will never listen to music in the same way again. The class meets weekly Mondays 10/30, 11/6, 11/13, 11/27, 12/4, and Wednesday 12/6. It is open to the public at no charge and no registration is required.    Call 226-4318 or visit www.pwpl.info for more information. [less-]
