Art House volunteers and staff just finished hanging the 15th Annual Northville Student Exhibit and it’s a great one! The talent shown by the students who entered is exemplary and definitely worth seeing. From ceramics to photography as well as drawing and painting, the skill and creativity from the students at Northville High School and […]

In the Artist’s Words…

On Friday April 4, the Art House is excited to open its newest exhibit “Detritus: the Work of Tom Thewes.” A Detroit icon and master of the airbrush, Thewes captures the tension between hope and despair that is Detroit, Michigan.

We are 45 minutes away from October’s exhibit reception and as usual on an opening night, you can feel the excitement in the air.  The volunteers are plating the food and making sure the wine opener is charged and ready; the curator is making name tags for the artists; our store manager is tweaking the Featured […]

September First Friday

September 9, 2013.  It was an exciting show opening Friday night!  Quite a crowd came to see Terry Lee Dill’s solo show “Dimorphism.”       The group perused the work, asking questions of the artist and exploring the detailed images.  Dill’s artist talk was especially interesting, and one of the most intriguing aspects he […]
