The Ann Arbor Art Center presents the fifth annual Art Now exhibition which opens Friday, February 15 and runs until March 16. This year’s exhibition focuses on painting and is juried by Roula David, the Executive Director of Detroit’s Murals in the Market.
This exhibition will highlight artists who employ traditional painting techniques, as well as those who move across disciplines and push the boundaries of what defines contemporary painting, including through the application of hybrid processes and use of mixed media.
“Art Now 2019: Painting” will open with a lively kick-off party on Friday, February 15th from 6-9pm at the Ann Arbor Art Center (117 W. Liberty St.). Some exhibiting artists, as well as the juror, will be in attendance. Refreshments will be provided free of charge, including beverages from O&W Inc. All ages are welcome. Admittance to the Art Center galleries is always free.
Ryan Herberholz (BFA ‘12) is one of many artists slated to exhibit his work. Since completing his BFA at Stamps in 2012, Ryan has presented his work at numerous exhibitions throughout Michigan and won an Award of Excellence at the Detroit Artist Market Biennial in 2018, the same year he received his MFA in painting from Wayne State University. His work, along with that of the other exhibiting artists, will be on display at the Ann Arbor Art Center from February 15-March 16, 2019.
