join us as we celebrate our student artists at the 6th annual grand haven high school student art show!

On Friday, May 5th, C2C Gallery is hosting the 6th Annual Grand Haven High School Artist Show as part of the First Friday Art Hop event in downtown Grand Haven. In addition to the show at C2C there are several other downtown businesses that will be showing two-dimensional work.

GabrielJames_332We are excited to have live music by Gabriel James Lundy at 6pm. Performing under the moniker Gabrial James, he is a singer/songwriter from Grand Rapids and currently resides in Fruitport, MI. He has been playing the guitar since the age of fourteen and singing since the age of eight. His style consists of smooth, percussive guitar rhythms with an unforgettable vocal range. His live shows consist of original material as well as an impressive variety of cover songs spanning several genres and decades.

C2C Gallery is celebrating 6 years of student recognition and partnership with Grand Haven High School art teachers and students. This is an opportunity to support young artists and enjoy wonderful student art work. Art lovers, families and participating students are invited to attend the event recognizing their creative talents.

Sheri Greene, GHHS ceramics instructor, says “these students have created some outstanding art works, especially when considering their level of experience in the ceramic and jewelry making mediums. They are talented, creative and hardworking.“ Sheri Greene and Cyndi Casemier, C2C Gallery, are the jurors for the ceramic and two-dimensional work. “I am amazed each year with the creative ideas that the students show in their work,” says Cyndi Casemier, ceramic artist and owner of C2C Gallery. “Grand Haven families are very fortunate to have these classes available to their children.

In 2014, jewelry was added to the exhibit. Irene Sipes, GHHS jewelry instructor, teaches bead wrapping with wire, small loom beadwork, and metalwork. Julie Sanford of Sanford Designs and Stacy Broas, of The Creative Fringe, are the jurors. The work will be displayed alongside professional work and you will enjoy the creativity and imagination of the students.

The gallery prominently features more than 35 acclaimed artisans in ceramics, photography, paintings, hand blown glass, hand fabricated silver jewelry, hand painted scarves, wood sculpture, and textiles.
