Remembering the life and art of Howard Sivertson

Remembering the life and art of Howard Sivertson

Join us for events remembering the life and art of Howard Sivertson!

As many of you know, we lost our dear Howard Sivertson in January. Howard lived an extraordinary life on Isle Royale and the North Shore, always near his beloved Lake Superior. A natural storyteller, he painted pictures instead of using words to tell of home, family, and fishing life. This month, we are celebrating an amazing man and his extraordinary art with festivities and a gallery show, open to everyone.

A Celebration of Howard’s Life

WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 2023, 5:30 to 10pm

Gather with friends and family at Up Yonder (formerly the Harbor Light) in Grand Marais, Minnesota, for a cash bar and dinner starting at 5:30pm. After enjoying food and spirits, we’ll share our Howard stories and enjoy music (including polka favorites!) from Liz Sivertson’s fabulous band, The Splints, until 10pm. Up Yonder is on Highway 61 as you enter Grand Marais from the south and west. All are welcome to attend!

Sivertson Gallery show and events

MAY 26 – JUNE 18, 2023

We’ll have a special showing of Howard Sivertson’s prints, highlighting his art of the North Shore, Isle Royale, and Boundary Waters regions, with historical renderings of the voyageur and fur trade era, schooners, ships, and steamships. Please stop in!

On SATURDAY, MAY 27, 2023, at 2pm we’ll kick off our gallery show with a presentation on the life, art, and stories of Howard Sivertson.

On THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 2023, at 10am we’ll repeat our presentation on the life, art, and stories of Howard Sivertson.
