With the ACWL-Nuveen Gallery closed due to Coronavirus concerns, we thought we'd share photos of the winning entries from this year's Change of Seasons Exhibition. Although these pieces are best viewed in person, we hope these photos bring a little joy to your day.

We are posting photos of the entire exhibit each week on our Facebook page, Please Like and Follow!

Thank you to our Change of Seasons sponsors for making this exhibit possible: Laura Schultz, Jane Hanna, Shelby State Bank of Montague, Mylan's Waterfront Grille, and The Trophy Center of West Michigan

P.S. Putting this blog post together really cements the importance of viewing art in person - whenever possible. Many of the photos above simply don't do justice to these beautiful works of art. Especially Natalie Max's, Gabrielle- a captivating drawing that is very misrepresented in the photo above due to bad lighting and my poor photography skills! Whenever we are able to open and reschedule the opening reception, I hope to see you there!
