    Day 3 of our Trapper’s Daughter Voyage!

    We commence day 3 of our Trapper’s Daughter voyage with the eighth image
    in Rick Allen’s series….

    Back in 2009, you could hear all of our jaws collectively drop, “KER PLUNK,” as we
    viewed “The Trapper’s Daughter Takes the Otter Slide” for the first time. What a
    beauty! Rick Allen really went to town with this gem.

    One of my favorite parts about Rick’s prints is that so often they spark a wonderful,
    rich memory. … read more

    in this enchanted series. Released in 2006, this beauty is a gallery staff favorite:

    Our first glimpse of the Trapper’s Daughter out of the winter, we see her strong,
    axe wielding arms and bare feet. A vision of strength and courage, she crosses
    the lake atop two loons. When looking at the clouds, I can’t help … read more

  7. Day 3 – The Wonderful World of BIRCH!

    Day 3 – The Wonderful World of BIRCH!

    Birch MANIA!!!


    Day three of Sivertson Gallery’s 12 Days of Christmas is an ode to our favorite
    North Shore tree, the birch!

    Since we love birch SO MUCH here in the Northwoods, perhaps it is time to take
    a cue from our friends in Northern Europe. In this region of the world, as well
    as Russia & China, birch sap is sometimes used in the manufacture of wine and


    However, if you’re feeling less ambitious and would rather simply sip out … read more

  8. Day 2 – Lake Superior Sparkles

    Day 2 – Lake Superior Sparkles

    There are few displays of color that affect me the same was as staring at the big open
    water of Superior early in the morning, but a beautiful gemstone that sparkles and
    shines is right up there! There is something absolutely memorizing about a rich piece
    of Opal. Similar to a cleansing dip in the big lake, the opal is said to bring its water
    energy to enhance self-esteem and sense of self-worth to the wearer. And don’t even
    get me started on Monica’s choice in Labradorite, with its purples, greys and … read more

    many years. Through watercolor, oil and his unparalleled storytelling, Howard
    is able to transport you to a world long ago. Whether it be to the home of an
    early pioneer on the North Shore, the canoe … read more

  10. Eastern Meets Nordic: Autumn 2014 Trollbeads

    Eastern Meets Nordic: Autumn 2014 Trollbeads


    When I was first introduced to Trollbeads, it was the Scandinavian connection that first
    peaked my interest. The delicate, silver Dala Horse bead, Thor’s Hammer and the adorable
    photos of the Danish Family members who ran the company, I felt right at home. Trollbeads,
    even the name evokes images of mossy rocks, streams and the smell of the deep forest.
    I was hooked.

    As the time has passed, and my love for Trollbeads becomes an addiction, my bracelet has
    transformed from Scandinavian … read more

  11. Back to School Books!

    Back to School Books!

    As summer starts to wind down and back to school advertisements flood our
    newspapers, radio and television, I am often brought back to the time when
    I, too was heading “back to school.” Back to school with new gym shoes,
    brightly colored notebooks and a bunch of freshly sharpened pencils. Life
    was good! In elementary school, I always eagerly awaited the “free read”
    time of day. A time when all us little kiddos had full authority to browse the
    children’s section of the school library. If there … read more

    Day 9 – Wood!


    Day 9 – Wood ya Look at THAT?

    Day 9 is focused on wood, wood-like products, faux wood painting, birch ceramic mugs…. You get the idea! In this day of Wood, let me mention the three groups of artists to be highlighted; Larch Wood, Grant-Noren, and Lenore Lampi.

    Larch Wood, based in Nova Scotia, specializes in “end-grain” cutting boards that are praised as works of functional art. Their small, select group of crafts people work exclusively with the native Eastern Canadian … read more
