Art Center marking 30 years

The Peasants Feast, by Bruce Thayer

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Paint Creek Center for the Arts presents 1982-2012 Art Endures – Thirty Years and Counting. With over 70 artists, this exhibition features stimulating and groundbreaking work in all media from across Michigan and beyond. The exhibition will run January 18 – Feb 15.

A free opening reception is set for Friday, January 18 from 7– 9 p.m. Meet the artists who have contributed so much not only to Paint Creek Center for the Arts, but also to art in Michigan. Raise a glass as these longtime friends are honored, and catch up with what they’ve been working on since their work was last exhibited here.

Preparation for this show began with a thorough search of the art center’s archives to assemble a list of artists spanning the center’s entire 30-year history. A number of the exhibiting artists began their careers with an exhibition at PCCA back when the center was just getting started. Others are just beginning to exhibit their work, and have shown with PCCA in more recent years.

The Main and First Floor galleries will both be packed with paintings, drawings, prints, photography, mixed media, ceramics and sculpture providing a representation of PCCA’s past, present and future.

The exhibit is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Kresge Foundation. For more information visit or call (248) 651-4110.
