Michelle Masson Photography
Where: G5/1 Corridor
When: March 4- March 29
Originally from North Carolina, I had the good fortune to move to Wisconsin in 2013. Since my move, I have fallen in love with Wisconsin. The name of this show is WisCarolina after the two best states; an unbiased opinion, of course. The larger black and white photographs were taken in North Carolina. These were primarily taken with 35 mm black & white film or infrared film. The Wisconsin photos are mainly in color and have been taken with an I-phone.
Since I was treated at the UW Hospital, I wanted to donate sales of my photographs to the Carbone Cancer Center and to thank Dr. Wisinski and the folks at the breast center for the compassionate work that that they do.
This show is dedicated to the memory of my beloved mother, Barbara Masson.

I use hand fabrication tools (rolling mill, hammers, torch), and techniques (forge, form, texture) precious metals (18L, fine/sterling silver) and gem/stones to create uncluttered, elegant designs.

I photograph Lake Superior from the vantage point of a sailboat. My photography began as a visual diary of summers my husband and I spend sailing in the Lake's remote, northern regions, a stretch of islands, coves and solitary anchorages in both the United States and Canada. The camera served as a tool to capture my experience of this wilderness. As the sailing seasons passed, I saw that in the dark nights away from city lights the Milky Way illuminated the Lake. I began photographing the reflections made by the Milky Way to find the connection of light between night sky and earth. Through the images in this exhibit, the viewer can experience scenes and places seen by few people but which should not go unnoticed. I learned photography through coursework at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. For the last several years, I have studied astrophotography under Brad Goldpaint, overall winner of the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year by the Royal Museums of Greenwich, England. Additionally, I learned the art of printing photos from John Gregor, a renowned fine art photographer who lives on the north shore of Lake Superior. When not sailing on Lake Superior, I make my home in Middleton, WI. There I take photos with a large format film camera and develop/print the photos in my darkroom.

I'm a life-long resident of Madison and have enjoyed creating art all my life. I recently retired from basketry after teaching this art form for 20 years. I currently teach watercolor and enjoy painting on a daily basis. The beauty of our world gives me plenty of subjects to explore, and Wisconsin has so much to offer. I hope you enjoy my paintings.
