'Meet the Artists' at HVCA
Local artist Barb Weisenburg wants area residents to “welcome spring in” by attending the Meet the Artists event from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, April 14 at Huron Valley Council for the Arts’ The Art Shop, 205 W. Livingston Road in Highland.
“Drop in during this fun event in which many of The Art Shop Artists get together for a day of creating, as they demonstrate their respective art to visitors,” Weisenburg urged. Artists featured include Mary Bajcz, Jeanne DeHaan, Denise Forrest, Beverly Larsen, Richard McKee, Mary Neff, Paul Tibedeau, Barb Weisenburg,Wendy Willihnganz, and other Art Shop members. Sales made that day benefit HVCA.
She explained, “The Art Shop is a function of volunteer HVCA member artists, and the collection is constantly changing.” Participating artists work in the TAS gallery on a regular basis and participate in one or more of HVCA’s support committees. They’re also required to attend meetings and openings as well as “proactively fostering a strong arts community in the Huron Valley area.”
“In addition to supplying a venue for the members to display and sell their work,” Weisenburg added, “The Art Shop at HVCA provides an opportunity for professional networking, and represents 20 to 24 artists at any given time. Members possess high artistic merit and are committed to the creative and administrative aspects of running a nonprofit alternative art venue.”
