A Weekend Celebration of the Arts
First Presbyterian Church of Northville
NORTHVILLE – The annual juried art show “Sharing the Gift Within” opens Oct. 6 at the historic First Presbyterian Church in downtown Northville. The art gallery is open each day and evening through October 12. Guests can enjoy the displayed artwork – much of which is for sale to the public. Artists who enter the show come from the all over the Metro area.
The juried show includes awards such as “Best in Show,” “Juror’s Choice” and other honors. The juror for this year’s show is Nancy Wolfe, a studio artist and educator who exhibits her work at galleries and art festivals. She is an Adjunct Professor at Eastern Michigan University.
“My paintings are a visual connection to my love for the turns and tricks of language,” she said in a statement. “I think about rhythm and color and how art can offer an image of glory or pain, harmony or strangeness. I like to take a walk in my paintings and conjure up a piece of nature, the beginnings of a visual story and a thread of connection between my path and viewers.”
The celebration continues with a concert at 7 p.m. Oct. 7.
Pianist Paul Sullivan is no stranger to Michigan. He resides in Maine but travels often to repeat performances for the downtown Northville Fine Art concert series. One of the hallmarks of his concerts is the sheer enjoyment he brings to his music and to his aduiences.
Filled with humor and interesting stories, Paul draws his audience into the music in a warm and friendly style. He is eclectic in his repertoire and has arranged all of the music that he plays. To listen to some of his music, visit http://www.rivermusic.com.
