Our Holiday Show is always an exciting time at WSG gallery! We install it every year on the Sunday after Thanksgiving and it takes about 3 days for several people to get all the work hung, installed, labeled, walls patched and touched up – in short, it’s a beast to pull off! But it’s a great sampling of the abundant talented artists we have in the Ann Arbor area. This show gives us a chance to invite folks whose work we love, to bring it in to the gallery and find new collectors.
The gallery is large, so we have lots of room to hang our regular show – that is, larger work with reasonable space between pieces – along with our Holiday Show, which is, again, an abundant amount of work, many smaller, that we hang salon style. It can be mind boggling to install! The number of pieces we hang is about double what we normally have in the gallery.
The show features the work of about 46 artists and the media ranges from glass and ceramics to painting, sculpture, photography, woodcut and intaglio prints to fine jewelry and fiber wearables. WSG has gift certificates if you know someone who loves art, but don’t know the color of the couch and we also have layaway.
The photos here give a little sneak peek, but to get the full experience, you really just need to come in to the gallery! The show is up until December 30.
