MAKESHIFT GALLERY
307 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor, MI  48104

In December 2022, a group of artist friends and I, opened a popup gallery for the holidays, called "Catch Us While You Can!", a MAKESHIFT GALLERY.
Well, we're still here! 
We enjoyed it so much that we decided to keep it going, and have now celebrated a full year in business! 

Besides a diverse selection of art by local area artists, during this past year we've also had some wonderful events on Thursdays afternoons, & at our "Sunday Salons": 
Artist demonstrations, workshops, poetry and play readings, 
and live musical events. 
We have lots more planned for the coming months!
Hope to see you there!
