Meet and support local artists at the pop-up gallery in downtown Ann Arbor

ANN ARBOR, MI – City of Ann Arbor to Open Its Own Pop-up Art Gallery A pop-up art gallery is opening in one of downtown Ann Arbor’s former favorite art spots.

The grand opening of Catch Us While You Can is on Friday, November 19th, from 7pm to 9pm at 210 S. Main St. in the former Peaceable Kingdom.

“Our motivation is to find Michigan artists opportunities to showcase their work,” said Jim Moran, Catch Us While You Can Partner and Co-Founder. “The art world needs all the internal support it can get and I’m so happy to be a part of it.”

Catch Us While You Can is a self-managed gallery of 18 of Ann Arbor’s best-known independent artists. Some local artists are also presenting their works to the public for the first time.

The pop-up gallery offers paintings, photography, greeting cards, ceramics, prints, ceramics and books from the region.

Cheryl Dawdy, Ann Arbor’s award-winning artist and co-founder of the Pop-up Gallery, is featured at the Christmas Gallery. While her work has mostly been shown in New York galleries, her collages, poems, holiday and greeting cards, and a new book of her artwork are on display and sold.

“I’m excited, I’m nervous, I’m overwhelmed, but most of all, I’m excited,” said Dawdy. “Everyone was so ready to be a part of it and make this a reality, and I’m just so grateful for everything.”

In addition to Dawdy, residents can expect to meet several other artists including Maxwell Davis, Jack Kenny, Margo West, Scott Hartley, and more. The new artists John Copley and Pamela Day will also be introduced.

“Local artists have wanted to do this for years,” Dawdy said. “It feels so good to be able to make this a reality and see Ann Arbor’s artists come together for this gallery.”

The pop-up gallery is expected to run until Christmas Eve, December 24th. Residents can visit Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 12 a.m. to 9 p.m.
