Northern Michigan Events: Join in the celebration of Leelanau County's vibrant, growing art community and glorious autumn colors with the 7th Annual Fall for Art in Leelanau gallery tour, October 5-7, 2012. There's no better way to spend Columbus Day weekend than with a Northern Michigan color tour drive through Leelanau County while visiting galleries featuring the work of area artists.

Enjoy artist demonstrations and refreshments at the participating galleries, find and purchase your favorite piece of art, or do a bit of unhurried early Christmas shopping in the relaxed atmosphere of Leelanau's diverse galleries.

Start your tour by picking up a descriptive brochure at any participating gallery displaying the bright yellow FALL FOR ART sign. Each gallery will be happy to sign your tour brochure to insure your entry in the prize drawing at the end of the tour.

This year, the tour takes place October 5th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., October 6th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and October 7th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., with the concluding reception and prize drawing occurring Sunday, October 7th at 3:00 p.m. at Lake Street Studios in Glen Arbor.
