Elliott said it best himself, “the less I think about it, the happier I am. I don’t really care where I fit into anything, or if there’s anything to fit into to. It’s just, I like music, you know? That’s the thing. It’s really uncomplicated.”
"Lines" An All-Media, Juried Exhibition
September 5-27, 2014
What's Your "Line"? This was the question posed to artists who entered the September 2104 juried, all-media exhibit. Is it a smear of paint from one dot to another? A quick note penned on a card? A group of people standing in a row? The words that start a lifelong conversation?
With no specific definition in mind, the Northville Art House is excited to present the personal interpretations of the word "lines" in this eclectic show. Artists include: Sandra Ackerman, Clarine Boles, Danna Wolke Bowersox, Peggy N. Brewer, Nancy Cassel, Daria Fileta, Jack Glaab, Judy Gilmer, Jennifer Helner, Claudia Hershman, Rosemary Lee, Ellen Leigh, Jan Lucking, Michael McNamara, Aileen Mozug, Barbara Eko Murphy, DeAndre Norman, Sarah Olson, Kate Paul, Janice Polzin, Patricia Riascos, Joanne Rochon, Ellen Sherman, Lori Zurvalec.
In addition, the Art House is pleased to announce a new exhibit on its "Emerging Artist" wall. Brittany Kihl, a student at Marygrove College, will display her work during the month of September.
The show will open with a reception on Friday, September 5, from 6-9 p.m. The exhibit will continue through Saturday, September 27 during regular Art House Gallery hours (Wednesday-Saturday, 1-5 p.m.).
For additional information, call 248-344-0497 or visit www.northvillearthouse.org
Art House exhibits are free and open to the public.
