Celebrating Summer Solstice

The recent occurrence of summer solstice/the longest day of the year makes us think of sunny and summery art here at the Dancing Eye Gallery. Above are some examples of what we picked to signify that our favorite season has finally arrived! Yellow seems to be a theme! What do you think of?

Arts & Acts This Weekend

Fun comes to downtown Northville this weekend with Arts & Acts festival from Friday, June 21 through Sunday, June 23! The Dancing Eye Gallery has loads of local art! Above photos are just a sampling of what you’ll find!

Teacher Appreciation Time

As the school year ends, don’t forget your teachers and how much they give all year to mold and broaden their students’ minds. A “thank you” comes in many different forms. The Dancing Eye Gallery can help with a thoughtful gift and/or a card. Come in and see us!

Make sure to scroll back to our previous posts for more gift ideas! There is so much more!

First Friday-Meet Mike Orick

This Friday, June 7, the Dancing Eye Gallery will host local artist Mike Orick during Northville’s First Friday Experience. Mike is a lifelong Michigan resident, a professor and a lover of nature and beachcombing. He uses driftwood, reclaimed lumber and vintage hardware to create beautiful functional art. Each piece is truly unique!

Mike will be at the gallery this Friday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. He will bring along pieces other than those that are for sale here, so don’t miss this opportunity. His art makes a great Father’s Day gift or a memorable piece for another someone special.

It’s Flower Sale Time!

Pack up your wagons and head to downtown Northville for their annual flower sale this Friday and Saturday! The streets of Northville will blossom with all types of colorful flowers for sale by local growers! You can’t miss the Dancing Eye Gallery as you walk the sale, so come in and see what spring has sent us! Don’t forget: It’s graduation time!

Congratulations Grad!

If it’s a graduation gift you seek, look no further! The Dancing Eye Gallery has all kinds of cool things! From frames to stickers, glassware to jewelry, T-shirts to cards, we can truly say that there is something for every grad here! Come and see us!

Happy Mother’s Day!

We know that Mom would really love something unique, sentimental and thoughtful from the Dancing Eye Gallery so we remind you that this Sunday is Mother’s Day. Need we say more? Don’t dare forget the mother in your life! She is a very special person. We are special here, too, because we will wrap your gift and make it beautiful – just for Mom!

And don’t forget the graduate! 

Say Hello to Dowidat Ceramics

Two artists – one a sculptural ceramicist turned potter, (aka “Claypaws” from her past creation of life-size dogs) and the other with a background in digital art now create unique, functional pottery and signed with their paw print trademark! They make their glazes on site and also throw the pottery.

Dowidat Ceramics are newer to the Dancing Eye Gallery, so we wanted to let our customers know and invite you to come in and take a look. We love their “earthy” items and think that you will too! Spring is the perfect time of year to shine a little light on something fresh, isn’t it?

Love Our Earth

Though today is Earth Day, make it a week to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather, clean up the garden or the water’s edge, smile at the sun, recycle and just do what you can to keep our world healthy and growing!
