Dave Wheeler photography show

Second in our Summertime Show Series
As we start our 28th year, The Courtyard Gallery invites you to come meet photographer Dave Wheeler. He will be here Saturday July 22nd and Sunday July 23rd, 12:00-5:00 both days.
Dave’s interest in photography began when he was a young boy. His father took his family on several trips to Mexico, a few to the backwoods of Canada and, yes once to Cuba. He never left home without his cameras. He turned those photos into slides, and “we spent many hours in front of the old projector enthralled with his images.” For me, a great beginning. My first formal photography instruction was in basic black and white in 1974. Somewhere in the 90’s I went kicking and screaming from film into the world of digital. Oceans and mountains, I am drawn to both. I’ve spent considerable time in the Rockies and on the Atlantic coast of Florida. In addition I have now found an exciting new way to show my work.

The new wave in photography is aluminum. The advantages of fine art digital printing on aluminum are the colors are extraordinarily vibrant, images are amazingly clear and the depth of the finish gives photos a luminous quality that no paper print can achieve. The look is mind-blowing. These beautiful photos can be shown indoors as well as outdoors. They are UV protected, scratch resistant and waterproof. This incredible artwork will last for generations.

The Courtyard Gallery is located at 813 E. Buffalo St., New Buffalo, Michigan.
The gallery is open daily Wednesday thru Monday 11:00-5:00, Tuesday by appointment.

Waterbirds at the Kuhl Spot

The Courtyard Gallery is proud to present Diane Kuhl from “Waterbirds at the Kuhl Spot”, Saturday April 18th from 12:00-5:00. For many years the Courtyard Gallery has had the privilege of knowing and supporting Diane Kuhl, a renowned water bird rehabber. She has cared for thousands of injured and orphaned water fowl and shore birds for over 30 years at her facility, “Waterbirds at the Kuhl Spot”, located on Hudson Lake in  New Carlisle, Indiana. A certified practitioner of healing touch for animals she has an intense personal concern for the wildlife we all live among. While working for a veterinarian in South Bend, Indiana, Diane became interested in helping water fowl. The rest is history.  She has attended many symposiums and workshops and now cares for over 300 orphaned and injured birds every summer. Most arrive at her facility because of contact with humans, encounters with other wildlife or physical abnormalities.  Though she returns many birds to the wild every year, her dedication, knowledge and love of wildlife has gone a long way in bridging the gap between human contact and loss of habitat.
