Building Up the North

Artist Catherine LaPointe appreciates the natural splendor of our region, but she wanted to find a way to bring more attention to the man-made beauty of the North Country through the eyes of the people who live here. Local residents and photographers chose photographs of structures around the region for Catherine to recreate in her very distinct style. The paintings and photographs are available for purchase.
