MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette Arts and Culture Center is featuring a local artist for its January Lake Superior Art Association Gallery exhibit.

Michael Zuhorski moved to the Upper Peninsula in 2015 and began his work titled "Eyes Make the Horizon," after a Ralph Waldo Emerson essay. His work is a portrayal of the development of his gradual understanding of the landscape as he's immersed himself in it.

"Showing the work here in Marquette, I hope to offer the opportunity to see the landscape through new eyes, or if the perspectives look familiar to you, hopefully it'll strike a deeply personal accord for people who recognize what's going on or what I'm trying to get at in the work," says Michael Zuhorski.

"Eyes Make the Horizon" features a number of photos from across the U.P. and one from Canada, and shows the split between human intervention and the natural environment. The work shows a lot of small details and changes within the environment that one wouldn't see if he or she was just passing through taking pictures.

The exhibit will be on display through the end of the month. There will be an artist talk on January 18th at 7 p.m. and a closing reception on January 25 at 6 p.m. at the Arts and Culture Center.
