September 1 – October 28: 9th Annual West of Center Juried All-Media Exhibition

In a nod to our location, as well as our philosophy of bringing the community something unexpected, West of Center is an inspired effort to showcase contemporary artworks selected by a highly-regarded juror, Brian Nelson, Professor of Sculpture at Eastern Michigan University. For the exhibition, 32 works of art from 22 artists were selected based on the juror’s vision for the exhibition with an emphasis given to compelling works of art presented in new, imaginative and unexpected ways. Join us on October 6, 6 – 9 for a First Friday Reception highlighting the exhibition and Downtown Northville’s October In The ‘Ville with Creepy Decor, Drinks, and Treats! A free make-and-take project by Art House Instructor Maria Latour! The Skeletons are Alive Kick-off Celebration!
