Frame-worthy Art in new calendar

The new Mount Clemens Art Association calendar for 2015 is in, and The Gift Shop has it! Each month features the original art of one of the talented members of the group. The MCAA  proceeds from sales go towards a scholarship for a Mount Clemens High School art student. How cool is that?

The Mount Clemens Art Association has members from many different art disciplines, and the calendar reflects this. The selected pieces are works of art all on their own, and suitable for framing. Here are just a few of the selected images:

Come take a look at the 2015 calendar soon. And by the way, we still have the 2014 calendar. It too is filled with lovely frame-worthy art.

Art for your indoor space

Fall arrives tonight and there is definitely a nip in the air. We will all be spending more time indoors, so how about sprucing things up at home! Here at The Gift Shop we have art work that will help you do just that.

 Brighten your space with fresh new wall art.

Add a beautiful decorative plate from Gayle Krause (KRA) to remind you of summer travels.

One of Rich Fidler's (FID) fun L.P. clocks would look great (and fun) on any wall.

This lovely ceramic vase from Lynn Conlen (CON) will brighten up your table.

What could be more fun than to add one of Darin Dundee's (DUN) whimsical creations to your collection?

Come see us soon, it's warm and friendly inside.

While you are here at The Gift Shop, check out the new exhibit in Anton Art Center's main gallery: "An Autumn Affair" presented by The Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors.

Celebrate at ArtParty

Starting this summer, Anton Art Center reached out to local businesses, restaurants, and communities for donations to add to the silent auction and raffle for our annual fund raiser ArtParty.  We made a special effort to get donations of art work from local artists, and our own artists at The Gift Shop. Everyone responded in a big way! Revelers will be able to bid on everything from spa packages, restaurant vouchers, home decor, food, get-away packages, and even cash!
Dearest to our hearts are the donations from artists. They have generously donated jewelry, wall art, art dolls, fun collage/sculpture art, hand-made wooden bowls, bright fiber art, and more.
Here is just a sample of what you will find:

Come Celebrate 45 years of the Art Center with us! Dress-up, dress-down, enjoy great food, great entertainment, all for a great cause. See you there.
