New Art Exhibit Opens Jan. 9 At The Pine Rest Leep Art Gallery

Beginning Jan. 9, Pine Rest will display a selection of Stacy A. Niedzwiecki’s digital art pieces. The exhibit will be located in the Postma Center Leep Art Gallery at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services, 300 68th Street, Grand Rapids.  

Niedzwiecki is passionate about capturing nature’s art and beauty through photography. Her show entitled, “Wonders of West Michigan,” exhibits the natural experiences of West Michigan presented through her camera lens. The exhibit highlights the calm peace and serenity found in our unique region from South Haven to Mackinac City. Featured in her work is scenery of area meadows, abundant wildlife, calming inland lakes, breathtaking sunsets illuminating Lake Michigan, brilliant color changes and more.   

The natural beauty Niedzwiecki captures has earned her awards in many art and photography competitions. In August 2009, she was awarded second place in the Pure Michigan photo competition, a highly-competitive event sponsored through Travel Michigan.  

The exhibit at Pine Rest will run from Jan. 9 until April 2, 2013. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Additional times are available by appointment. There is no admission fee. For more information, please call 616/222-4530.
