OPENINGS: THURSDAY & FRIDAY, May 8 & 9 from 6 - 9pm

G.R. N'Namdi Gallery's Art Detroit Now exhibit will feature three of the gallery's representative artists, Anita Bates, Christine Hagedorn and Allie McGhee. Each of them has been asked to select a companion artist, whose work they know and admire and with whom they have had some professional connection, thus the title of the exhibit "Connections". Anita has chosen Alice Smith, a Detroiter and professor at Wayne State, Smith states, "my quest through art expresses my appreciation and respect for all humans and everything that has dwelled upon this earth, respect for the unending circle of change." Brian Pitman is Christine's connection. They have been friends and associates since graduate school and "share a love of all things organic, found objects, discovery and craftsmanship." Allie McGhee chose longtime

friend Ibn Pori Pitts. As budding artists at Cass Tech Allie and Ibn bonded and remain friends as each expresses their talents with varying applications. The "Connections" exhibit in the G.R. N'Namdi Gallery exemplifies the vision of the Art Detroit Now weekend. This project provides the opportunity to sample the diversity of the Metro Detroit Areas' artists along with showcasing our numerous galleries and museums.
