Almost six months to the day since we closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning to re-open the gallery next week with reduced hours. Starting on September 15 we plan to have the gallery open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm. A huge “thank you” goes to those who have volunteered their time and have allowed us to re-open. To keep our volunteers and gallery visitors as safe as possible we are following guidelines from the State of Michigan and CDC, including requiring face masks (disposable masks will be available), social distancing, having hand sanitizer available and limiting the number of visitors in the gallery. If you’re making a special trip to visit the gallery we suggest you call ahead to make sure a volunteer is available and the gallery is open. The Art Center number is 810-329-9576. • Our Education staff continues to work to start art classes soon and safely.
