Michigan Made | Holiday Art Exhibition - Call to Artists

Submision Details

2021 Michigan Made | Holiday Exhibition
For over 30 years, we have offered an annually-curated holiday experience for our community featuring Michigan artists. We intend to feature artworks that range from fine art to small gifts including jewelry, paintings, pottery, metalwork, leather goods, paper products, glassworks, woodworking, and more. In addition to our annual exhibition, we also sell a collection of the work on our online sales Gallery. In addition to our regular open hours, the Gallery will be open for special events.
