Elk Rapids Art Beat on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Three of northern Michigan's award winning galleries will be participating in an open house gallery walk from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Each Elk Rapids gallery is special, and all offer original fine art, along with many affordable artist-made items. Three $100 gift certificates will be drawn from entries by those visiting all three galleries. Festivities include guest artists who will be demonstrating their work. Refreshments will be served all day. Stop by for a mimosa, wine, hors d'oeuvres, or other tasty treats.
Mullaly's 128 Studio & Gallery, enjoying its 26th year representing excellence in fine art and craft, is located on River Street in downtown Elk Rapids. Mullaly's offers the finest selection of high quality glass in northern Michigan, and has been recognized as the finest jewelry gallery in the area. The Blue Heron Gallery, located on Ames Street, just one-quarter mile east of the light on US 31, showcases hundreds of Michigan artists. Gallery owner Dan Reszka will be demonstrating watercolors starting at 10:00 a.m.
About a mile south of Elk Rapids, along US 31, the Twisted Fish Gallery specializes in fine paintings, along with pottery, metal, wood and jewelry. Their large sculpture garden will be in full bloom, offering sculptures to enhance your home or business. Visitors can participate in an hourly gift certificate drawing throughout the day.
