In a New Light is a therapeutic nature photography program at Northwest Passage, a residential mental health treatment program devoted to restoring hope to children and families located in northwestern Wisconsin. Northwest Passage’s treatment philosophy borrows from the wisdom of the past and combines it with current research about the importance of living a full and mindful lifestyle. In a New Light emphasizes skilled expressive arts training and nature immersion, ultimately empowering youth to define themselves by their strength rather than their weaknesses. Enjoy the celebration of our beautiful outdoors that they capture in these and many more photographs
Marie joined our Board soon after it’s inception and took charge of operating the art gallery. She was magic in finding volunteers and artists to become involved with us. She gained the respect of members, artists, and customers with her quiet, humble, and professional commitment.
Her dry humor and positive attitude were uplifting. Some people are born to try and save the world, but Marie saved the day, over and over gain, with her simple, sensible, and sane approach to problem solving and advancing the TLCA’s mission. These traits made her a wonderful president and once she took the job, we wouldn’t let her quit.
She had a great sense of style, artistic flair, and creativity that led to many themes for parties, titles for events, and clever decorations. She also made great deviled eggs and never failed to bring them to many “Meet the Artist” receptions, along with hundreds of other snacks.
We honor Marie by naming our newly remodeled gallery that she so loved and managed, “The Marie Moore Gallery.”
Marie was – above all – a very humble person, so there was no gala or big celebration. The plaque on the wall in her cherished gallery is where she can be appreciated and remembered by all who visit and are missed. Thanks for the memories and all you did for us, Marie.
