April 6 – 28: The Art of the Family: Donald, Robert, Susan and William Perrish
–Art of the Family features paintings and sculptures from a family of award-winning artists. The exhibition answers the age-old question of nature versus nurture by demonstrating the existence of both innate talent and learned skills in shaping the artist.
Donald has been drawing and painting his entire life. He attended the College for Creative Studies and is a freelance artist involved with fine art, murals and architectural art design.
Robert studied art at University of Michigan. After 30 years in the commercial art business, his art has evolved from wildlife painting and sculpture into landscape and figure painting.
Susan grew up surrounded by music and art. Her mother is a talented watercolor artist and her father was a gifted woodworker. After she married Robert and raised a family, she found her artistic talent through drawing, specializing in soft pastel portraits.
William, like his brothers, picked up drawing at an early age. Largely self-taught, he explores different mediums and subject matter, developing his skills with each project.
Regardless of their beginnings and how their artistry is expressed, one common trait among each artist is a sense of passion for art.
Please join us to celebrate the work of Donald, Robert, Susan and William Perrish at the opening reception on Friday, April 6 from 6 – 9 pm.
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.
