The work of West Michigan’s talented artistic community is on view during the annual West Michigan Area Show. Opening to the public on Friday, May 3, this crowd-pleasing annual juried exhibition was carefully curated from more than 300 submitted entries, ranging from paintings, prints, and photos to mosaics, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, and mixed-media works. This year’s juror is Jessica Silverman, founder of Jessica Silverman Gallery in San Francisco. 

During the Awards Ceremony on May 2, over $5,000 in awards, including a $1,000 grand prize, will be given to recognize excellence in varying media represented in this highly anticipated exhibition. 

Visit the galleries before June 24 to vote for the People’s Choice Award. The winner of the People’s Choice Award, sponsored by the Arts Council of Great Kalamazoo, will be announced during Art Hop on Friday, July 12, at 6:00 pm.
