‘The LGBTQ+ Artist in Michigan’ delivers depth, breadth and diversity
“Michigan,” artist Peter Stack declared, “is great because of our diversity, and celebrating that multiplicity allows us all to flourish.”
Stack, who is earning a master’s in fine arts at the University of Michigan, is one of 28 artists whose work is represented in “The LGBTQ+ Artist in Michigan” at the Lansing Art Gallery.
“As a person who lives in rural Michigan, it’s uniquely wonderful to have representation and community support,” Stack added.
The exhibit, on view through June 29, showcases a mix of emerging and established artists from around the state. With work by 28 artists, it feels big and diverse. Sculptures and ceramics fill the windows, and paintings and pencil drawings hang alongside carved wood. There’s even a queer quilt.
