We Are "Your Tahquamenon Gateway"
We welcome you to Tahquamenon Country and the Tahquamenon Falls, attracting more than 750,000 visitors per year. The Legendary Tahquamenon Falls was made famous in the Longfellow poem Hiawatha. According to Indian lore, the origin of the name Tahquamenon is attributed to the water's amber color, which is the result of leaching of tanic acid from the cedar and hemlock swamps that feed the river. The Tahquamenon Falls is special in many ways. One little known fact is that it is the second largest waterfall east of the Mississippi, with Niagara being the largest. The Tahquamenon Falls are open year-round.

Christine Groleau retired from teaching art and opened her own studio in order to concentrate more on her personal growth as an artist. She attends local workshops, as well as hosts her own workshops in her studio. She has concentrated on abstract painting with a focus on color, and a strong center of interest.
Laura Maze focuses mainly on the process of her work, but is mindful of the outcome. Her changing interest in technique, style, and material allow her to keep her works of art spontaneous and personal. Laura is currently in a gold leaf period with her paintings and prints.
The exhibit will be open to the public.
