Since opening in 2011, C2C has hosted free local music and artist receptions during their First Friday events. The gallery features more than 35 acclaimed artisans: ceramics, photography, paintings, hand-blown glass, prints, hand-fabricated silver jewelry, hand-painted scarves, wood, and textiles. Over the 9 years of being in business, C2C has supported area non profit organizations helping them to raise money for their local programming and organized student art events.
In 2017, C2C Gallery was a LocalMotion Award recipient. “Local First does a great job of recognizing businesses that are truly making a positive impact in their local communities,” said Cyndi Casemier, owner of C2C Gallery. “The LocalMotion Awards capture the spirit of what it means to be a business owner in West Michigan and promotes using business as a way to make a positive impact.”
On March 15th, C2C will be closing its Washington Avenue location. C2C Gallery will continue to sell artwork via it’s website www.c2cgallery.com.
There are plans for pop-up shows in different locations throughout the year going forward. 5% of all ongoing sales will be donated to West Michigan’s Kid’s Food Basket throughout 2020.
