Arts Council Opens Two New Exhibits Featuring Works by Artists Michael Burmeister and Nuel Friend

The Holland Area Arts Council is happy to present two new exhibits, Riser and Pauses, with an opening reception on Friday, July 12th at 6 pm. The exhibitions and reception are free and open to the public with light refreshments provided during the reception.

Riser is an exhibition by artist Michael Burmeister, owner and director of Button Gallery in Douglas, Michigan. This exhibition will feature both ceramic pieces and two dimensional paintings. Burmeister uses his abstract art as a way to reflect the complexities of the natural landscape. His works will be available for purchase during this exhibition.

Pauses is an exhibition by artist Nuel Friend. His large-scale paintings dominate the space as they explore the difficult to explain yet inspirational aspects of life. Friend thoughtfully paints with oil in a contemporary style with dramatic movement. His works will also be available for purchase during this exhibition.

Explore Riser in the Holland Area Arts Council’s Armstrong Gallery and Pauses in the HAAC Padnos Gallery. Both exhibits are on display until September 4th.
