New goings on

Now on
Utrecht Detroit is now on Myspace. com. Sign up and become a fiend so you can get information through our bulletins! Never Be Out Of Touch Again!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures from the demostration. Maybe next time you will join us, and then you could see yourself online!!!

On to other things.....

Show us what you've got!!!!!!!!!!!

Coming in October we will be giving away 5"x7" canvas panels with a minimum purchase of $20.00. You get to paint the canvas board and bring it back to us. This canvas board acts as a percentage off coupon for your next purchase. We will collect all of the canvas boards and in December a winner will be selected to recieve a gift certificate for the holidays.

Everyone is going to be able to see these so really think about what you want to do. They will also be posted on the blog, along with your name.

Here are some examples of canvas boards,

You can do what ever you want, within tasteful ranges. So come on in and pick one up.

There is a limit to one panel per purchase, but you can submit as many panels as you'd like. All entries must have your name neatly printed on the back along with your email address, so we can contact you if you've won.

Demonstration Pictures

For those of you who weren't able to make it to the Screen Printing Demonstration, this is what you missed.

Brian Stuparyk was very informative. He is now a student at Cranbrook Academy of Art, and taught printmaking classes at other schools.

For those of you who were able to come, we thank you very much and hope that these photo's serve as good memories.

Dally in the Alley and other stuff.

Yes, ladies and gentleman, Dally in the Alley starts today. Please be sure to visit the Dally Gallery. It is run by one of our former associates, Mark Sengbush, and has quite a bit of associate work as well.

Lemberg Gallery has an opening this weekend featuring Brad Brown and Tom Phardel. Something not to be missed.

Last night the Detroit Artist Market had a fantastic show. That DAM Box Show was a fund raiser for the gallery and a tribute to the Willis Gallery. Everyone recieved a small tin box, much like an altoid box, and were given free reign to create whatver they wanted with the box. It was interesting to see that most of the boxes fell into 3 catagories. 1-People put tiny little things inside of the box. 2-They put the box onto something larger. And 3-people destroyed the box, either by smashing it, or running it over. Allison Pasarew torched the heck out of hers, and another artist Gary Kulack actually shot his numerous times with a gun.
Over all I want to say that the fundraiser was a big success, all of the boxes were for sale and were auctioned off.
The mass amounts of people really helped too. I really wish I had pictured to show all of you.

For those of you who are still looking for artist oppurtunities we have 'em. Come on in and take a look at our Artist Oppurtunities Board. Filled weeky with all sorts of calls to artists and people seeking artists. So check it out, you may get a show out of it.

Screen Printing Demonstration Announcement!!!!

Ok, since so many of you have signed up for this demonstration, I am beginning to think that this will be standing room only. However, if there is anyone with special needs, or those need a chair we will definately be providing them.
Please note that if you are sitting in a chair and don't really need one, and someone else who obviously does comes in to see the demonstration, please be considerate and let them sit down. Other than that I think we all will have a blast!!!
