January 5 – 27: Contagious Curiosity: Todd Burroughs with Students and Instructors from the Atelier
This exhibition will feature paintings, drawings and photographs by Todd Burroughs with students and instructors from Metro Detroit. Each work reveals classical techniques developed in European ateliers during the 18th Century.
Burroughs has taught classical painting and drawing for over 14 years. The desire to pass on his artistic knowledge led to teaching being an important part of his studio practice.
“One of the things I love about teaching is that it creates an environment of intellectual curiosity that is contagious. Curiosity drives me to start a new piece of art and to sit down in front of a piece that I have been working on for months with excitement and sincerity.”
Contagious Curiosity opens with a public reception on Friday, January 5, from 6 -9 p.m. with a Gallery Talk at 7 p.m.

April 6 – 28: The Art of the Family: Donald, Robert, Susan and William Perrish
– Artists are both born with innate creativity as well as made through training and education. Many become artists after trying other vocations. Regardless of the beginning, all artists develop a craft in the company of other artists.
The existence of both innate talent and environmental influences, including familial connections, in shaping an artist rings true for this family of award-winning Metro Detroit artists.
May 4 – 19: The 19th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition
Since 1999, the Northville Art House has presented this exhibition with art created by middle and high school students from the local community. Last year, the Art House had over 100 participating students from Northville High School as well as Meads Mill, Hillside Middle Schools and Our Lady of Victory Catholic School.
The exhibit provides students an opportunity to display creative work from the classroom in a public place that celebrates their work. The exhibit promotes the appreciation and importance of fine art in schools and aims to demonstrate to students the experience needed to work as art professionals or pursue post-secondary degrees in the fine arts.
We encourage all of our young artists to participate in the exhibit and we thank our educators, parents, guardians and community members who support their creative interests.
