Gallery 100 is delighted to announce the opening of “Outside the Lines,” a vibrant group show from June 26 to August 29. This exhibition will feature the works of emerging artists from across Michigan, offering a diverse and eclectic range of subjects and mediums. 

“Outside the Lines” highlights each participant’s unique perspectives and artistic expressions. Time Blatt, an artist from Grand Rapids, describes his intricate perspective renderings as “deceptive,” drawing viewers into a world that reveals “what is, but also what isn’t.” Kirk Fitchett, an illustrator inspired by sci-fi, fantasy, nature, and wildlife, brings whimsical drawings that reflect his deep connection to art as a Greater Flint Arts Council member.

Joe Beels, who creates drawings based on his observations of the world, also brings his experience as a talented pianist to his art, embodying the principle that practice is vital to mastery. Cynthia Casey from Detroit showcases her handcrafted roses made from papier-mâché, wire, and recycled materials alongside her vibrant acrylic paintings. Her self-taught journey as an artist is fueled by a desire to bring joy to the public. 

Nick Orozco’s paintings invite viewers to delve into their intricate details, while Dyle Cross Jr. breaks boundaries with his calligraphy style, incorporating unexpected materials like shoes into his artwork.
