Starring "The Gallery"
The First Friday of each month downtown Northville celebrates the arts with their long running First Friday Experience. You’ll find something new each month as many of the town’s galleries and boutiques stay open late with special guests, trunk shows, music and their newest merchandise.
Starring “The Gallery” hosts an artist reception each month. Some of our artists have exhibited with us in the past and others will be exhibiting with us for the first time – each showcasing their newest pieces in their own unique style. Each artist will be available to answer questions and their artwork will be on display and available for purchase throughout the remainder of the month.
Artists, hors d'oeuvres, shopping, music and good friends - Experience it all at Starring “The Gallery” during the First Friday Experience.

Watercolor, acrylic & mixed media
Artist Bio: Looking at life in a positive way makes us feel good inside and out. Each new learning experience in life can be a new journey towards opportunity that is ours to explore and pass on to others.
Learning new ways to use texturing, color and design while working with mostly acrylics and watercolors is endless. With these medias you can add pastels, watercolor pencils, pen and ink, gels and many items to achieve a design. To create a piece of art that the viewer will stop to look at, is your challenge to me.
When you look at my work I hope that you see movement, color and texture that will give you a special feeling inside. I belong to the Visual Arts Association of Livonia, MI, the Farmington Art Foundation of Farmington, MI and continue working with other artists who are working to express themselves by creating new and exciting art. Life is how you choose to live it.
Sheila Landis & Rick Matle to Perform
Jazz vocalist Sheila Landis has been performing her soulful interpretations of jazz and blues since 1973. Landis teamed up with 7-string guitarist Rick Matle in 1991, sensing a kindred musical spirit. Together Landis and Matle continue to explore jazz balladry, swing, bebop, blues, poetic excursions, Brazilian rhythms, funk, pop and their own inventive collaborations at every performance; elegant, yet edgy.
