West of Center encouraged artists to think outside the box and push past boundaries to create compelling works of art – works that are unique and unexpected.

The Northville Art House invited visitors to recognize the artwork that best fits this theme. The award went to Pat Vartanian for Family Masquerade, paper photo weaving and ink on paper bag set on wood stands.
