Alpena, Mich. — The Besser Museum for Northeast Michigan opened their ‘Winter Blues’ non–juried exhibit Wednesday night.

The museum welcomed over 60 people in from the cold. It’s the second year for the exhibit, and the art work took on all different forms of blue.

“I was so pleased to see so many people come out with the weather,” said Christine Witulski. “Everybody was saying they have cabin fever, they really wanted to come and beat the winter blues.”

Artists could enter up to five pieces into the show. Since it was non-juried, the exhibit provides a unique opportunity for artists of all kinds and all mediums.

“I’m always pleased to see that new and more artists and other mediums are being entered, and so it’s just really a place where they can feel comfortable to express their art,” said Witulski.

There is a people’s choice award, so folks can vote for their favorite work. The exhibit runs until April 13th. For more information, visit their website
