HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY!! Cove Alom, Aunty and Uncle 'Cabin Home: Myth and Reality on a Northern Lake' opens Saturday What force drives a person to, for over 70 years, spend the entire summer at a remote cottage on the shore of a large northern lake? For artist Fred Brian, it was a love for both the simplicity of life and the hidden complexity of existence in this region; it was a desire to uncover secrets in the wild and translate them into artwork. In its ninth annual exhibition with artist Fred Brian, the Pine Tree Gallery of Ironwood announces the opening of "Cabin Home: Myth and Reality on a Northern Lake," a showing of new work to run from Saturday through July 14 at the gallery. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. and will include a discussion on the inspiration of Brian's personal vision' and his art. This recerit work by Brian, who has spent a good portion of his life at Lake Gogebic, includes paintings, prints, and drawings that explore the realities of the Upper Peninsula's wilderness, combined with myths of childhood memories, Native American and immigrant cultures, and life experience. It is this subtle contrast of daily life in the Lake Superior Basin and the images that lie behind the surface of a historically rich area that makes Brian's work striking and original. Brian was born in Normal, 111. in 1924 raised in Bloomington and, locally at Lake Gogebic, where his family has owned land since 1923. He served as an Air Corps pilot in World War H and returned to study printmaking at the University of Iowa in 1947. For over 70 years, artist Fred Brian has witnessed changes in the culture and environment of the region. His personal view, In paintings/ prints and drawings, is from the vantage point of a cottage on Lake Gogebic. His artwork will be on display in an exhibition fitted "Cabin Home: Myth and Reality on a Northern Lake," which opens at the Pine Tree Gallery in Ironwood on Saturday, with a public reception at 7 p.m. In 1952 he established the printmaking department at Illinois Wesleyan University and held the position until his retirement in 1984. Brian is an accomplished artist in a variety of print media. He works as well in oil,.watercolor, ink and pencil, and experiments in mixed media drawing. Producing hand printed JetterpreM , broadsides from hi» own writing, he al*o print* the work of a number of other poets. Brian's work is widely collected in the United States and abroad, and he baa participated in over 175 one-man and group exhibitions, many of them of international status. The personal and spiritual vi-' sion that emanates from the artist's work is based on memories, tales, and superstitions that. blend and contrast to reveal a truly unique personal mythology, . and one man's insight into our, culture admid the untameable , wilderness. " • • Brian's work suggests to its viewers that they see the region • through new eyes, to recognize' the undertones layered through history; undertones that are of-' ten buried to the casual observer ' but integral in understanding the ' land. The exhibition and reception for i "Cabin Home: Myth arid Reality on a Northern Lake," is free to the public.

Aurora St.. Downtown lroo»wd 932-567? ATTENTION POSTAL PATRONS! On June 19, Ironwood letter carriers delivered an important message to citizens of our community—a message critical to protecting the future of quality mail delivery in our city and the very viability of the U.S. Postal Service as a great American institution As you know, we weren't just out on our postal routes that day. We also walked an informational picket line in front of the post office to let the public know that they may soon experience a deterioration in mail delivery because of ill-advised decisions and action by postal management. Members of Branch 437 of the National Association of Letter Carriers (AFL-CIO1 don't want that to happen. We're all proud to be letter carriers. And we know that the U.S. Postal Service is the best m the world, delivering more mail to more people over greater distances and at a lower cost than any other in the world. But all is not well inside the Postal Service. An autocratic and increasingly militaristic management, fueled by short-siehted and misguided directives from Postal Service headquarters in Washington, wants to take the word bervice out of the Postal Service. We are determined they will not succeed, but we need your help. Letter carriers in Ironwood pledge to our postal customers that we will continue to provide you with the best service possible and we will fight those in management who would sacrifice the service you receive just to make some points with the postal bureaucracy m Washington. ^ The demonstration we have just conducted is only the beginning. We ask for your support and encouragement as we strive to convince postal management that you—our postal customers—deserve nothing short of the very best service. Sincerely, The Ironwood Letter Carriers
