Frightful First Friday is Coming

The “scariest” and yet most anticipated time of the year in downtown Northville is happening on Friday, October 5 at 6 p.m. 

Above are photos of Rena Hopkins surrounded by her Divine Iguana goodies, Melanie Brooks in all of her Day Of The Dead splendor and mug shots by ceramic artist Nicole Pangas. These three artists will have their works here at the Gallery for October First Friday where even more Halloween art and light refreshments can be enjoyed in conjunction with The Skeletons Are Alive party in the streets!

Celebrate the Lunar Eclipse

This Friday, though only available via live stream in the U.S., is the July blood moon eclipse. Even though we cannot see it here, there are plenty of “lunar” gift ideas and fun art at the Dancing Eye Gallery! And .. you can prepare for the next lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019 which will occur in North America and will be able to be viewed in it’s entirety in Michigan!

One Acre tile

Though traditionally the four-leaf clover is not associated as often with St. Patrick’s Day, it is a rare find and said to bring good luck. We guarantee that what you find at the Dancing Eye Gallery is rare and that you will have only good luck shopping here! How’s that for our segue to St. Patrick’s Day and the three-leaf clover or shamrock which we’ll feature next week?

We Dream in Colour

The Dancing Eye Gallery welcomes a new jewelry line: We Dream in Colour. Founded in New York in 2002 by Jade Gedeon, they are now located in Salem, MA, near Boston.

Her team is comprised of women where all jewelry is made by hand and in-house. They focus on minimizing environmental impact; using repurposed materials and earth-friendly processes where possible; and working with socially conscious suppliers.

We Dream in Colour boasts “a little something for everyone”–from quirky to elegant!

Jade’s design influences came from her extensive exposure to various cultures and countries growing up and her involvement in the art world.

(All items shown above are currently available at the Dancing Eye Gallery.)
