Book signing to be held at Reds on the River, Thursday, April 22

Crossing the back roads, beaches, and many of Michigan’s best kept secrets, Rockford resident and photographer Stacy Niedzwiecki snapped pictures. Lots of pictures, pictures of nature and peaceful places, pictures designed in her words to offer a “relaxing respite from a busy day.”

As Niedzwiecki’s gallery grew, so did her following. She began selling her works throughout Michigan, and through one local suppler, she was introduced to a cancer survivor who thought the images would be very emotionally and mentally calming for others during their treatment. Niedzwiecki was then introduced to the art committee at Spectrum Health’s Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion and commissioned to supply 62 images for hanging throughout the Pavilion. Fast forward toward two years, and now the tranquil, reflective, healing nature of Niedzwiecki’s work has been extended beyond the walls of the Cancer Pavilion.

In March 2010, the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion and Niedzwiecki co-published Healing Images, featuring all 62 of her photos from the Pavilion. There are incredible color images of gardens, beaches, light houses, bridges, farms, foliage…many from throughout West Michigan, including Grand Rapids, Lowell, Cannon  and Spencer Townships, East Grand Rapids, Ada, Grand Haven, and Holland. Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinaw and points in between are also featured.Niedzwiecki notes: “You won’t find images with people in them. This allows the viewer to place themselves into the photo without identifying with someone else. It allows the art to be more personal.”

On Thursday, April 22, Niedzwiecki will be at Reds on the River in Rockford from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to meet guests and sign copies of Healing Images and Pure Michigan – Spring, a second recently-released book featuring many of her photographs. Reds is located on the banks of the Rogue River in picturesque Rockford—and has been the subject of her lens on more than one occasion.
