From Aug. 10-12 the Glen Arbor Art Association (GAAA) will feature photographers Robert de Jonge (Petoskey) and Jeff Rabidoux (Glen Arbor), with an opening reception on Friday from 6-8 p.m. The gallery will be open from noon until 7 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

deJonge is a native Michigander who has worked as a designer and photographer for over 30 years. He has participated in five Artist-in-Residence programs in the last seven years, beginning with GAAA’s Sleeping Bear Dunes residency in 2005. “With the eyes of a child” is a predominant methodology in Bob’s work as an artist.

Rabidoux, a fine art photographer, has a distinctive gift for capturing life on the 45th Parallel, the invisible line designating the longitudinal halfway point between the Earth’s equator and the North Pole and which runs through Leelanau County. His photographs have been featured in national and local publications, including Outdoor Photographer, Traverse Magazine, Lakeland Boating, and this year’s edition of Manitou Magazine.

In conjunction with their show deJonge and Rabidoux have planned a fieldtrip/workshop the morning of Saturday, Aug. 11. Join them to catch the morning light at Sleeping Bear. These professionals will take you out at dawn and spend two hours capturing this incredible lakeshore landscape. The class costs $50. Register at or by calling the GAAA office.
