Three Cities Art Exhibit Invades Plymouth Community Arts Council
Eleven artists from around the metro Detroit area present their professional looking artwork reasonable prices.
The Plymouth Community Arts Council has a wide array of unique paintings for this month’s art exhibit. The works are by the artists from Three Cities Art Club, which has its art on display until Nov. 29.
The club, founded in 1958 by artists from Plymouth, Livonia and Northville and based in Canton, welcomes new artists to display their talent each month.
“Local artists have come together to put on this exhibition at the Community Arts Council to exhibit our unique style of art,” said Marilyn Meredith, Three Cities Art Club president.
According to Pat Adams, volunteer coordinator and exhibits chairperson, the exhibit benefits the community because it showcases local artwork.
“We are bringing artwork to the community by providing artwork for people to view and purchase,” Meredith said.
According to Meredith, artists are chosen by election, which gives them time to figure out if they want to be a part of an event such as this. However, she said artists are allowed to choose their own artwork and price for the exhibit.
Through the use of selling artwork, the art continue putting on exhibits and provides a bit of an incentive to the artist.
“The Plymouth Community Arts Council receives commission and the art club receives a small commission,” Meredith said. “The rest of the money goes to artists.
