Visitors often come to Northern Michigan in October for beautiful fall colors, wine tours, and to squeeze in one or two more trips to the Sleeping Bear dunes in before chilly temperatures set in. This year, both tourists and locals alike will have the opportunity to visit four pop-up art galleries throughout Leelanau county.
The M22 Art2Art Tour will feature award-winning work from nearly forty Michigan artists. The four-stop tour will take place at four venues along M-22. The tour has four stops throughout Leelanau county, each stop centered around a specific medium.
“There’s an incredible amount of artistic talent in northern Michigan,” says Bill Perkins, show director. “We are tapping some of the best artists in the region. We want to give the arts community of northern Michigan an opportunity to showcase their work during one of the most beautiful times of year.”
At the Suttons Bay Friendship Center, ceramics and tile work by renowned clay artists like Laurie Eisenhardt and Phil Wilson. The pop-up gallery at the Northport Arts Center will feature furniture and sculpture from nearly 20 award-winning artists in a variety of styles, ranging from rustic, sustainable furniture by Bill Perkins, to the psychedelic, to contemporary work from artists like Jason Sharp and Larry Fox. The Old Art Building in Leland will feature a wide selection of fiber work, from intricate fiber collages by Char Bickel to hand-painted yarn by Chris Roosien. In Glen Arbor, at the Township Hall, you’ll find a open gallery of ten artists showing vibrant painting and sculptures by Jeff Condon and Angela Saxon. Art will be on display and for purchase at all locations.
