The Clare County Arts Council (CCAC) is excited to present local photographer, Tom Cradit as the Artist of the Month for May. Tom will be showing his photographs in Clare Hardware in downtown Clare, Michigan. Tom took up photography as a young adult having always had a love for the visual arts. He spent many years with “film” cameras and in darkrooms developing and printing photos. Black and whites, color prints and color slides gave him the chance to express what his mind and eyes saw through a camera lens.
Tom has spent most of his adult life in graphic arts from designing advertising for print media to writing copy for commercials on broadcast media.
Today you will find Tom cruising the highways and trekking through the forests, camera in hand still looking for that elusive ‘one great shot’. His work can be viewed at www.tomcradit.com. Be sure to stop by Clare Hardware in downtown Clare and enjoy Toms’ remarkable photography. The store is open M-F 7:30 am to 8:00 pm, Sat. 7:30 am to 7:00 pm and 8:30 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday.
