  1. Fall Fiber Show | Center Gallery in Glen Arbor

    Comments Off on Fall Fiber Show | Center Gallery in Glen Arbor

    Center Gallery exhibits the fiber constructions of three Northern Michigan artists in its final 2018 exhibition. The work of Midge Obata, Holly Sorensen and Elizabeth Rodgers Hill opens with a reception on Friday, September 14, 6 pm – sundown, and runs through Sunday, October 7 at the Glen Arbor gallery located at 6023 S. Lake St.

    The gallery’s fall show spotlights three contemporary approaches to working with fiber: weaving and hand felting, all of it taken into a sculptural, three-dimensional direction. All three artists approach fiber as a material that can be pushed beyond its conventional and utilitarian uses, into the realm of art object.

    Center Gallery is open daily 11 am – 5 pm. For more information go to, or call 231-334-3179

    Comments Off on Artist Reception | Royce Deans

    Traverse City painter Royce Deans exhibits a new body of working that offers a glimpse into his ongoing relationship with the Leelanau landscape August 31 – September 13 at Center Gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. An artist’s reception to open the show is Friday, August 31, 6 pm – sundown in the gallery.

    “While my work is based on specific places, I’m more concerned about the essence of the place than I am about being completely representational,” Deans said. “I am nearly always in wonder of the natural world around me. Its beauty and balance gives me peace. Many years ago I was much more interested in pop culture and the things that man has created to make living on this planet easier and to keep us entertained. But these accomplishments of man, which are many and are indeed astounding are ever changing, breaking or going out of style.”

    Center Gallery is open daily 11 am – 5 pm. For more information go to, or call 231-334-3179
