The Auto Show is in Hamtramck this year! From January 5 to January 26, the photography of Bob Beras and Bruce Giffin will be on view. Both artists have spent a considerable portion of their careers looking at cars. Beras is a professional digital retoucher who works mainly for the auto industry. Giffin is Kresge Artist Fellow who has been photographing Detroit for over 35 years.

Cars have played an important role for these artists. Beras uses his immense skills in blending photos to recreate dreams, which seem to usually involve vehicles and animals in dramatic landscapes. Giffin's years of observing Detroit sees the unique relationship this city has with the car, beyond simply being "The Motor City".

These two will have an artist talk Saturday, Jan. 19th at 2:00.

Gallery Hours Wednesdays (6pm-9pm) and Saturdays (noon-6pm)
Opening reception Saturday, November 3 6pm – 10pm

People have been turning clay into art for all of our known history. It is both an ancient practice and a contemporary art form. Dezman explores the qualities of ceramics, using scraps and flaws to her advantage. She breaks down the elements of clay and reforms them in visually appealing ways that no longer appear to be traditional ceramic art.

This is Dezman's 6th solo show since graduating with her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2014.

hdlsummer.jpg

All volunteers, everyone is welcome!!

We're continuing with our restoration work from over the summer! Going to take advantage of the warm weather while we have it!

Here is a rough overview of some of the things we have on deck to do: 

Paint cut outs, whirly-gigs, and other toys. Build platforms on alley side to add these things and paint it. Hang work in the “gallery” (the space between garages). Begin repairs of upper structures - as schedule permits with people who are comfortable/specialize in that kind of work. Fix and add items to the front porches and middle walkway.

We're very open to suggestions and approaches so please feel free to share your creative thinking and ideas!

Scott Northrup's appropriations of common objects and personal artifacts create moving artwork that is unpredictable and unique. He takes family photos, toys, outdated technology and many other items to draw out an autobiography that can be felt deeply without knowing him personally. He manipulates these objects with sewing, painting, video, and other media to get at the heart of what makes that object worthwhile. 

Northrup is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Entertainment Arts at CCS.

Jes P. of Novi rated Hamtramck Disneyland 3 out of 5 stars on Yelp in 2014. She writes, "Mr. Dmytro's backyard artist studio is not my style but something I would recommend people see you at least once. I mean, where else can you say something like this in metro Detroit?"
