This site is dedicated to discovering and promoting artists in the northern Michigan area and beyond. We began in 2001 by publishing the Arts & Artists catalog featuring artists and galleries “around the bay.” We highlighted works by artists in the Traverse City to Harbor Springs region of Michigan. In 2002 we expanded to include Cheboygan and Mackinac artists. Over 10,000 copies of this guide were distributed throughout the area annually. You may request back copies of this publication here. In 2006 we decided to focus on the website portion of the project.
With this website we are expanding to represent many more fine artists and galleries in Michigan.
Apply now for inclusion. You may apply at any time throughout the year.
Currently our on-line catalog represents artists in the following media: acrylic, drawing, glass, jewelry, oil, pastel, performing arts, photography, sculpture, and watercolor. Browse our media page to find specific artists in each of these areas.
In the future we hope to expand our community to include writers, videographers, woodworkers, weavers, potters, musicians, theater groups, comedians, artists creating “wearable art,” and many others! If your talents fall in these artistic areas or any others, please apply for inclusion. We look forward to showcasing all the artistic talent in our northern Michigan area. If you have questions, please contact us.
Please enjoy browsing the site and visit often to watch us grow!
