Flying Pig Hosts Reception for Calendar Girls for ALS Project

On Oct. 18, 11 am – 2 pm, Flying Pig Gallery in Algoma will host an opening reception for the Calendar Girls for ALS project. The project was started by Jim Schumacher and his wife/business partner Angela to help their friend Eric Johnson, a maple syrup producer who was diagnosed with ALS in 2012.

Angela, an artist and graphic designer, organized the fundraiser using art as its fuel. She joined forces with local photographer Che Correa and lighting specialist Ben Jordan. Together they shot an unconventional photo series titled “Pure. Natural. Maple Syrup.” The series features women making maple syrup and manufacturing maple syrup equipment au naturel and has been described as tasteful, lighthearted and free-spirited. The series was then compiled into a limited-edition 2016 calendar and is currently being sold on

The photography series will also be showcased and sold at The Flying Pig Art Gallery in Algoma from October through December. The fundraiser beneficiary will be Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS).

The Flying Pig Gallery is located two miles south of Algoma at N6975 Hwy. 42. Hours are 10 am – 5 pm daily through the end of October, and 10 am – 5 pm Friday through Sunday in November and December. For more information call 920.487.9902.
