An exhibit created by some of the state’s top artists will go on public display in Livingston County starting this weekend.

Called, “Michigan Scapes,” the exhibit opens this Friday, July 13th at 6pm at the Secunda Museum at Cleary University in Genoa Township. Original artwork depicting the natural beauty of Michigan will be on display through Thursday, August 2. Hosted by the Brighton Art Guild, "Michigan Scapes" is a new, competitive exhibition featuring 60 paintings by 48 artists from around the state. The show is a visual travel tour of Michigan scenes; from Tahquamenon Falls in the Upper Peninsula to rural farms across the state to downtown Detroit.

Each work includes a compelling personal short narrative by the artist that references the depicted Michigan scene. Professor Emeritus Jim Nawara of Wayne State University served as juror and selected the works from over 200 entries. The public is welcome at a free opening reception this Friday from 6 to 830pm.
