Special guest artist Marion Kratky will be on hand to present a collection of her work inspired by the Adirondacks and the National Parks. Marion lives in Northville and shows her prize-winning work throughout the state.

A new show of artwork by Micropolis member artists will also be on display in the gallery. Work will include paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber art, batik, mixed media, woodwork, glass, digital art, sculpture, jewelry, and pottery. The show will run through the end of October.
