Art exhibition on display for a good cause

MARQUETTE — On Tuesday night the City of Marquette Arts and Culture Center hosted a special talk and demonstration with a Gladstone based artist.

The artist’s exhibition is on display now at the Peter White Public Library.

“Ex–Voto” is the project that’s on display features tiles with bright–colored objects placed in a ceramic shaped hand.

“It’s me offering ruminations and thoughts of my childhood, sometimes literally and sometimes symbolically” said the artist, Scott Leipski. “So, each tile has a story –some larger some smaller –but, connecting to my youth, family, places and things.”

The series features 150 tiles, but in total over 170 were made.

This exhibition also has a twist; Leipski will be giving 40 percent of his proceeds from the sales back to the public arts commission.
