We extend a special thanks to craftsman Steven Zimmerman of Duluth, who just put the finishing touches on handmade oak frames in which the photos will be displayed. Each frame is a work of art in itself.
In a couple weeks, we'll be heading to Black Iris Gallery in Spooner for a day of matting and framing our photos under the instruction of professional framer JoAnn Martin. We'll post photos from our day at the gallery.
In the midst of all the exhibit planning, we are still finding time to seek refuge in the peaceful comfort of the Riverway, cameras in hand. Below are a few photos from the last couple weeks.

"This photo made me have a whole new perspective on this creature. I would have normally thought it's just a silly frog. But if you really look at it, and feel it looking back at you, it's a beautiful creature." Photo called "A New Perspective" by Cody, age 16.
"This picture is half scary and half beautiful at the same time." Photo called "Snake on the Shore" by Logan, age 12
