Upcoming Events

First Friday Gallery Walk at C2C Gallery

September 5, 2014
06:00 PM / 08:00 PM
104 Washington Street Grand Haven, MI 49417 616-935-7337

Featured Exhibit: “Italian Light” with Douglas R Gilbert
Music: Violinist Zachary Graft

C2C Gallery is honored to host “Italian Light” with Douglas R Gilbert. Douglas lives here in West Michigan but began his career with “LOOK” Magazine. He began his photographic career there as the second youngest photojournalist in the company’s history. His work is in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Norton Simon Museum of Pasadena, CA and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He has exhibited all over the world. Douglas has co-authored three books. He is the author of “Forever Young: Photographs of Bob Dylan” (with text by Dave Marsh).

Douglas’ current work focuses on the qualities of sunlight expressed in the Italian landscape. The light and landscape of Italy heightens this challenge for him and is an irresistible draw for continuing explorations. The physical world is the raw material for Mr. Gilbert’s art. He photographs the environment around him, rather than any construction of his private realities. Douglas’ work will be on display and for sale through the month of September.

C2C Gallery is a Retail art gallery with a working ceramic studio located in downtown Grand Haven, Michigan. We feature more than 35 acclaimed Michigan artisans in ceramics, photography, paintings, glass, hand fabricated silver jewelry, hand painted scarves, wood sculpture, and textiles.

Downtown Grand Haven Waterfront

The Downtown Grand Haven waterfront will be bubbling with family friendly activities as D&W Fresh Market presents and Grand Haven Area Convention and Visitors Bureau hosts the Grand Haven Salmon Festival —a multifaceted festival that pays tribute to the area’s bountiful waterways as a natural resource, while coinciding with the region’s annual Salmon migration.

The 11th Annual Grand Haven Salmon Festival, a three-day festival slated for September 12 - 14, 2014 in downtown Grand Haven. The event was designed to mark the passing of summer, promote the area as a unique fall tourist destination and celebrate the fall harvest season and salmon migration. The festival theme is arts, education and entertainment and assures the residents and visitors alike a unique opportunity to learn about the region’s natural assets, while experiencing the cultural appeal of the area through music, art, entertainment, history and education.

The outdoor-waterfront festival features live jazz music; Michigan wine tasting pavilion (ID required for wine/beer tasting) featuring Michigan’s top wineries and grape stomping; gourmet salmon cook-off contest; fall harvest beer & entertainment pavilion; downtown merchant market; fine art fair on the waterfront; Big King Salmon fishing contest with weigh-in/awards ceremony; mouth-watering food and beverage treats at the Fresh Catch Fish Boil; Grand Haven historic displays through the Tri-Cities Museum; hands-on children’s nature-themed arts & crafts activities; and educational, environment-focused exhibits, displays, workshops—and more!

The Salmon Festival was designed to promote the importance of Michigan’s coastal waterways while paying tribute to a unique aspect of West Michigan—the annual salmon migration. Festival attendees will experience hands-on learning, education and exhibits and enjoy a culturally rich weekend experience that includes arts, crafts, live music, wine, food and family fun.
