First Friday Gallery Walk at C2C Gallery in Grand Haven

March 6, 2015
06:00 PM / 08:00 PM
104 Washington Grand Haven, MI 49417 616-935-7337

Exhibit: “Seen and those things hidden”
Live Music: Bill Ellingboe, acoustic guitarist.
Location: C2C Gallery, 104 Washington, Grand Haven

C2C Gallery is excited to show a new exhibit featuring the nonrepresentational paintings by Margie Welek Fagan and ceramic houses by Jacob Koster.

Margie creates a body of work that is multi-layered and eclectic. Her intention is to create layers of interesting textures and lead the mind’s eye on an aesthetic journey. Jacob works in both clay and canvas. He enjoys the challenge of hand-building architectural forms with lots of detail. His attention to detail does not stop at the exterior. Look inside. His buildings have the feeling of a ship inside a bottle – large pieces that defy the scale of the structure that they are placed within. The building takes on an interesting narrative.

What do you see in Margie’s paintings and find inside Jacob’s buildings?

As always, we will be hosting live music. Bill Ellingboe is a Grand Haven-based musician and songwriter with a strong affinity for music that at times has been labeled everything from Americana, to Roots, to Folk. He is currently working on a new collection of songs to be released in the summer of 2015.
