September 7 – 29: WEST OF CENTER: Juried All-Media Exhibition

-In its tenth year, West of Center presents compelling works of art created by artists nationwide and selected by exhibition juror Jeff Cancelosi. The works reveal a fresh approach to traditional art forms through the use of interesting techniques, unique concepts, and striking imagery.

About the Juror: Jeff Cancelosi has been making art all his life. His work addresses the passage of time through materials, methods and subjects and has been featured in four solo shows. His pieces have been juried into shows by such artists and curators as Jim Dine, Susan Goethel Campbell, Mel Chin, Carter Foster, Charles McGee, Michelle Perron and Andres Serrano. He holds degrees in design and photography. 

Given this is a milestone year for the exhibition, the Art House’s Exhibition Committee sought out Mr. Cancelosi, the current head of the Exhibitions Committee at the Detroit Artists Market who formerly held the same position at the Art House and helped to launch the West of Center exhibition ten years ago.

Works On View in the Gallery: All work is available for purchase (except where NFS is indicated) by calling 248- 344-0497 or visiting our gallery in Northville. Awards Winners were announced at the opening reception (see where noted). 

Emerging Artist Wall

Borrowing from her love of American Indian Shamanic traditions, Nancy Davis combines painted animal images with three-dimensional form to create medicine boxes. Each box tells the story of a painted animal, often referred to in native traditions as a totem, that embodies certain strengths and attributes that allow humankind to explore the mysteries of life and the spirit world.
