MAKESHIFT GALLERY “MEET THE ARTISTS” EVENTS FOR JANUARY 19TH & 26TH
THURSDAY, JAN 19TH @ 4:00-5+pm – Mike Mouradian & Dan Mulholland
- Handmade Cigar Box Guitars, Pan-jos & Can-jos by Mike Mouradian. Mike will demonstrate (and may even teach his audience how to play) his electrified creations, assisted musically, by musician, Dan Mulholland. He’ll also share some of the surprising, rich history of America’s cigar box guitars. - Dan Mulholland will discuss some of the techniques involved in creating his assemblages from “found” materials, which many of his fans see as 3-dimensional collages.
THURSDAY, JAN 26TH @ 4:00- 5+pm – John Lloyd & Carlye Crisler
Ann Arbor as Art: Photographer, John Lloyd & Painter, Carlye Crisler use completely different mediums and approaches in creating art from familiar Ann Arbor scenes, which are uniquely transformed when viewed through their eyes. John’s photos of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County’s nature and wildlife have been widely published and are regularly featured in the Huron Watershed Association annual calendars. His downtown street scenes, and Carlye Crisler’s celebrated paintings of iconic A2 and Ypsi storefronts, have regularly appeared in many publications, including, for Carlye, covers of the A2 Observer. John and Carlye will share stories about how and why they found, chose and created their images.
ALSO, stay tuned for more information about the "Coffee, Tea & Croissants" gatherings on Sundays @ 11am, which will feature artist discussions & informal music
