The Glen Arbor Art Association [ GAAA ] inaugurates its new gallery and exhibitions space with “New Gallery/New Work,” on Friday, January 12, 2018, 6-8 p.m. A reception to open the exhibition begins at 6 p.m.
“New Gallery/New Work” is an invitational show that showcases the work of 25 visual artists from Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, and Manistee counties. Exhibitors were invited to contribute a piece of work created between May 2016 and November 2017. This time frame mirrors the period during which the GAAA undertook a campaign to expand its building at 6031 S. Lake St. in Glen Arbor.
As part of the exhibition, the GAAA will offer two different “Talk About Art” interviews with two different sets of “New Gallery/New Works” exhibitors on January 21 and February 11, 2 p.m. in the gallery. Both events offer a chance to hear these artists talk about the process and challenges of keeping their work fresh and new. “Talk About Art” is free and open to the public.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. during the week, and noon – 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, call the GAAA, 231/334-6112; or go to: glenarborart.org
