Bonnie Peterson developed an early passion for the outdoors while skiing on Wisconsin's glacial moraines and sailing with her Dad on Lake Michigan. She lived near Chicago and the lake so close and vast, that she didn't give the other Great Lakes a thought beyond memorizing the acronym HOMES (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior) in grade school. She finally saw Lake Superior while kayaking to Raspberry Island in the Apostle Islands where she heard stories about her great-great-grand uncle Francis Jacker who was a Raspberry Island lighthouse keeper in the 1880's.
Bonnie's Exhibit will run from January 19,- March 11, 2011 Monday through Friday 8am - 5pm in the Besse Center Galleries. The gallery is located at the Bay de Noc Community College, 2001 North Lincoln Road in Escanaba, MI 49829
