Detroit Artists Market

The annual Detroit Artists Market (DAM) Scholarship and Exhibition Program opening this Friday at DAM's midtown gallery. It features work by 10 Cranbrook graduate students, all finalists for the John F. Korachis Scholarship Award, as well as a few alumni. There was a great variety of work to see this year, including fabric sculptures, ceramics, painting, and even an artist who dabbles in scrimshaw. If you missed the opening, which was jam packed, and in a good way, make sure you stop by when the gallery is open to check it out. The gallery store is filled with a lot of great new art and artists, they really kicked it up a notch, since the last time I visited. the show runs through April 5. Detroit Artists Market 4719 Woodward Avenue Detroit Below is a picture of the first place winner Katy Richards work and a couple others I enjoyed.
