HVCA Supports Michigan Artists with Monthly Gallery Exhibitions

Each of the 12 artists selected to exhibit in the gallery receives a month long venue to display and sell their works.  At the opening of each exhibition each artist has the ability to interact with the general public at a special artist reception. HVCA fulfills two critical goals and objectives with each exhibition: (1) the enhancement of art appreciation for our constituent base and citizens in the region and (2) providing artistic opportunities for Michigan artists where they are able to display and sell their works.  These monthly gallery exhibitions not only promote and assisting Michigan artists, but affords HVCA the ability provide a tangible resource that strengthens the community.

More about the Exhibit and Sale

Novi photographer Maurice Sanders decided to focus on people in the upcoming Huron Valley Council for the Arts’ August gallery exhibit. Sanders explained, “While traveling to different countries, I have taken many images of local people. I had an idea of putting together a photography exhibit called Global Faces.”

The exhibit takes place in the HVCA art center, 205 W. Livingston Road in Highland, and features a gallery opening from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Aug.1, with a chance to meet the artist while enjoying light refreshments.

Sanders, who is a freelance photographer, has studied both film and digital photography for many years. Several of his photographs have been published in local magazines. He also has received numerous awards from camera clubs and area galleries.He is largely self-taught, with the exception of attending workshops, online courses and networking with other photographers. He is a member of several camera clubs and president of one. Each club provides him with hands-on learning and networking opportunities. 

Sanders’ love for photography has taken him to all seven continents. He firmly believes that “a great photograph tells a story and creates a feeling within the viewer.” When asked what his favorite photograph of all his work is, he replied, “The one I’m going to take tomorrow.” His philosophy is to "make the invisible visible."

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Friday, Aug. 1 through Friday, Aug. 24
