The Lakeside Studio in Lakeside MI. founded by John D. Wilson in 1969, was an artist in residence program that spanned a long time-frame and crossed from different mediums over the years. Publishing American printmakers for 20 years then focusing on International ceramic artists in the final years. (1969-2010) Here we are presenting a brief overview of the collection. Highlights include plaster reliefs by Russian superstar Irina Nakhova who recently represented Russia at the Venice Biennale (first solo woman show in Russian history) and featuring new paintings by Chicago artist Rimas Ciurlionis (a prior resident at Lakeside Studio). Add a couple Chicago Imagists into the mix and you have a pretty good cross section of what was being done at Lakeside.
