Cause & Affect Gallery
Cause & Affect Gallery began as a need to find space to accommodate a friend who is differently abled in order to take a class in silversmithing. After searching for awhile, the current location was found. The gallery is accessible to all and our classroom space is adaptable for people of differing needs. Inclusion of all is very important to us.
The gallery name speaks to what we do. We take various causes and want to make an affect in the greater community. This is done by donating a portion of all of our sales to non-profits. The donations are done on a quarterly basis and we have a list of non-profits that we choose from.
There are over 50 Michigan artists whose work is represented at the gallery. The different mediums include painting (acrylic, oil & watercolor), glass, pierced metal, jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, wood turning, laser woodwork, quilting, photography, mixed media, collage, pen & ink and fiber.
We offer a number of workshops in the studio space at the gallery. The instructors are artists themselves and they cover a wide variety of mediums. The studio space is 450 square feet and accommodates up to 20 people depending on what medium is being taught. There are workshops for all ages.
Art comes in many forms. We have been reaching out to the schools, theater and other organizations to come and be a part of our space. Many different events will be happening in the gallery.
While all the art is for sale at the gallery, there is a retail area as well. We are proud to partner with Buy the Change who help women artisans in third world countries. They purchase their goods fair trade. In addition, we carry 4oceans bracelets and are doing our small part to help clean the oceans of the plastic waste that is present.
We hope Cause & Affect Gallery inspires you and that you enjoy being immersed in our art.
