Michigan’s Farmer’s Markets

By Laura Crabtree-Hollenbeck
Laura’s award winning work has been juried into local and international competitions and publications. She has painted ever since she could hold a paintbrush and has studied at various colleges and universities, workshops and independently self-taught for over 40 years. Her work is in private and public collections throughout the country and in Europe and Russia.Laura says “when I’m inspired to paint I can almost feel the meditative state I will achieve in the midst of creating the outcome. I can only hope the beauty, warmth and life in my subject matter will appear to the beholder of my art. I strive for the positive in life and to make real what strikes me at a particular moment.”
This exhibit reflects Ms. Hollenbeck’s love for the midwest – our native plants and farmer’s markets.  It will be on display and available for purchase through the end of November.  

Bill Ellingboe musician

Bill Ellingboe

Join us for First Friday Art Hop! You will enjoy Bill, a local favorite musician.  Bill Ellingboe is a songwriter and musician. He grew up in Atlanta, a small town in the northeast corner of the state. While attending college at Notre Dame, he helped form the infamous bar band Stomper Bob & The 4 x 4’s, which eventually evolved into Umphrey’s McGee after his departure. It was also during this time that Bill began to discover the music that would leave an indelible stamp on his musical style.
