Shh, Don’t Tell at Center Gallery

From staff reports

Grand Rapids artist Holly Sturges takes viewers on a tour of her secret painting places in “Shhh! Don’t Tell,” new plein air landscapes on view from July 10-16 at Center Gallery, 6023 S. Lake St., in Glen Arbor. A reception to open the exhibition is from 6-8 p.m.

Sturges’s oil paintings focus on iconic Leelanau County subjects: two-tracks and outbuildings in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, beaches, farms and well-known Lake Michigan overlooks. Sturges returns to Leelanau County throughout the year to paint in places she has discovered, but does not name when she titles her work.

An artist’s demonstration is scheduled for July 12, at 1 p.m. Struges will paint and discuss her work. For more information please call 231-334-3179.
