Look Inside the Artists Market
We have added a virtual tour of the inside of our Petoskey gallery. Check it out on our About Us page and our Northern Michigan Arts blog. This look inside tour also appears when we are in the results of a Google search.
Help Create a Public Art Plan for Downtown Petoskey
News Flash! -- Downtown Management Board rejects Public Art Plan proposal. Details here.
The idea of a public art plan for Downtown Petoskey has been on the priority list of the Downtown Management Board for several years but no plan has yet been created. As big fans of Downtown Petoskey and Northern Michigan art, we think it is time to do something about it!
Downtown already has a few sculptures, like one of our favorites, Chief Petoskey, pictured here in winter garb. We have some murals painted on the back of a few buildings. For a short time, we even had a location for independent, creative graffiti art. But shouldn't we encourage more public art? We think so.
Smithsonian Magazine recently selected Petoskey as the #6 best small town in the US to visit, largely based on our galleries, arts and culture. What better way to harness and enjoy our artistic spirit and amazing amount of local talent than by creating a plan to place more public art in our Downtown.
As we progress we will keep you posted here. For more details, see my recent post on the Northern Michigan Arts blog. Join us and get involved in this exciting new project for Downtown Petoskey!
The Northern Michigan Artists Market, a part of Pure Michigan!
Welcome to Petoskey's First Smartphone Friendly Store!!
When you are in the Artists Market looking at an artist's work and want to know more about the artist or the artwork, just pull out your smartphone and scan the nearby QR Code. You will see the page about the artist from our website. If you wish, navigate to the artwork you are standing in front of.
- First, the Artists Market brought you great Northern Michigan Art at our gallery in Downtown Petoskey.
- Then we introduced our website/online store and brought the gallery to your computer, even when you are not lucky enough to be in Petoskey (and even let you shop online).
- Now, we bring the website into the gallery so you can get all that great info about the artists and the artworks immediately, right on your smartphone, while you are looking at the art in the gallery!
