Visual Arts and Exhibitions

mwcs-homepage-1Welcome to CTAC!

Spring is here!! and so are the Youth Art Show and the North Central Michigan College Emerging Artists Exhibition! Visit the galleries in Petoskey to see the extraordinary work created by students from pre-K to college, under the guidance of our community’s fine teachers and professors.

The  Bonfield and Gilbert Galleries at CTAC-Petoskey present the 2017 Youth Art Show from April 8 to May 6, 2017. This vividly colorful, energetic exhibition features nearly 1000 student works from 30 schools. Teachers from public, private, and home schools in Emmet and Charlevoix Counties selected their students’ best work for this exhibition.  Drawings, paintings, collages, sculpture, pottery, and mixed media pieces illustrate the creativity and skill of our students and teachers. We hope that you will visit the galleries to celebrate art education, the accomplishments of individual students, and the collective effort and dedication of the talented teachers that inspire and support them.

The Atrium Gallery at CTAC-Petoskey presents the 2017 NCMC Emerging Artists’ Exhibition from March 23 to April 27, 2017. Drawings, fused glass, paintings, video, animation, and works of 2D design illustrate the strength and breadth of the NCMC Visual Arts program, and highlight our local, emerging talent. Stop by the Atrium Gallery, located in the lower level, to see this fine exhibition! We are fortunate to have this dynamic program and these wonderful teachers to support these passionate emerging artists! Support their efforts by visiting this exhibit!

And at CTAC-Traverse City, we are proud to present the 70th annual exhibition of the Michigan Water Color Society. The exhibition features over 60 paintings by many of our state’s top watercolor artists, representing a variety of styles and subject matter. Internationally acclaimed artist and author Judi Betts will serve as juror. The exhibition will run April 8 – May 26, 2017.
