The photo that appears on this 5” x 7” card (blank inside) is from Catherine Lange’s series of Ice Caves photos taken during a very frigid January in 2014. Nearly 90 percent of Lake Superior froze that season, and the ice caves became accessible. The Lake Superior Ice Caves are located in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore at Mawikwe Bay along the mainland. When the lake freezes, people can make the two-mile-long round-trip hike across the ice to see the caves, and during that season almost 140,000 people traveled from around the world to do that. Frozen waterfalls formed pillars of ice on the red cliffs. Icicles adorned cliff edges and the domed ceilings of caves.

The photo that appears on this 5” x 7” card (blank inside) is from Catherine Lange’s series called “Still Lifes in Moving Places.” When selected as one of eight artists in the 2014 Wisconsin Community Supported Arts program, Lange create the series, photographing everyday objects—a glass vase, a pewter creamer, a white enamel pitcher—in places that included Meyers Beach, Copper Falls State Park, and her yard in Washburn deeply covered in snow. Lange says, “These still lifes occurred in places where water, wind, and light had been moving; and, in the making of these images, gratitude for natural beauty and love for the people associated with those objects moved through me.”
