Due to the changes at the Troy Library, I/ACT will be meeting at a new location. The meeting location may also vary from month to month.  There is no charge and meetings are open to anyone interested in arts and culture in Troy. Many members are from Oakland County. However, we also attract art lovers from Macomb County to Toledo.  Our newsletter database has grown from 20 names to over 250! 

Contact Linda Shears (linda@lindashears.com) or Charlene Brown  248-813-0234 with any meeting questions. Our website is   www.TroyArts.org.



Huge thanks to Mary Liz Curtin who had the idea for this event and even offered her store as a location to host the seminar as an I/ACT fundraiser!  


The "Sell It" seminar was a great success!  Over $1600 was raised for I/ACT and 70 artists and craftspeople attended the evening event. Special thanks to the panelists who provided their expertise:

Mary Liz Curtin - Leon and Lulu ,  Clawson, MI

Anne Kuffler - Ariana Gallery , Royal Oak, MI

April McCrumb - Catching Fireflies and Yellow Door Art Market ,  Berkley, MI


While warming up for the seminar, attendees were able to sip wine and sample hors d'oeuvres while exploring the dazzling array of products and home furnishings offered at Leon and Lulu.  The panelists provided amazing insight for artists about how to build a successful wholesale business.


      BEST IN SHOW    


  Larry Zdeb has done it again!  He won TWO awards at the "Word Play" Show that's currently on display at the Grosse Pointe Art Center.


He won Best in Show for his Light Box (left) AND he won an honorable mention for his painting titled "Emotions" (right).
