A wide open theme of “ANYTHING GOES” was the invitation to SSAA members and guest artists for the September exhibition at Southern Shore Art Gallery in the Uptown Arts District on Franklin Street in Michigan City. The exhibition which opens on First Friday September 4 will showcase paintings in a variety of media, photography, sculpture and fiber art presented from the minds and hands of artists from the region.
“The Gallery is known for its exhibitions which change monthly and offer a wide array of themes that keep the shows vibrant and current,” said Anneke Dekker, Exhibition Chair. “For this exhibit, we decided to extend the parameters and invite artists to an unlimited range of self-expression and subject matter. We definitely expect some surprises in this show.”
Exhibits at the Gallery have enjoyed attention from the Chicago Tribune which cited four of the shows as their “Pick of the Week” in the last two years.
“Anything Goes” will open with a free hospitality reception from 5-8pm, a chance to meet the artists and will run through Sunday, September 27. Regular gallery hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 12noon-5pm (CST).
