The Best of Michigan Brew Labels
March 12 through April 20, 2018
Small craft brewers have become very popular and profitable. Along with creating the best brew, small brewers are not only interested in eye catching labels, they also want to provide the story of their brand, share their interests, inspiration, and showcase their unique personality. A strong theme and set of images on their labels is an important way for small breweries to stand out. Often using professional designers, design firms, or working with artists, craft brewers are not afraid to try new things for the sake of their label.
This exhibition will showcase the art of the Label from hand selected regional brewers.
April 17 -June 16
Reception May 3, 4:00 – 7:00 PM
You may have seen the huge pumpkin carvings by Gordon Mallett in downtown Big Rapids during Fall Festival. Big Rapids artist Gordon Mallett’s creative array of work, Cabinet of Curiosities, opens April 17 -June 16. The solo exhibit is Gordon’s first. Come and see what curiosities abound. The exhibit is housed in the Artworks lower level Chemical Bank Gallery. The reception is May 3, 2018 between 4 and 7 PM with the artist talk by Gordon at 5:30. Artworks is pleased to introduce Gordon’s artwork to our community.
Much of his style may be due to the prodigious number and diverse subjects of books he reads and the subsequent mashing together of disparate elements and unusual combinations of subjects that take place in his head on a daily basis.
Gordon currently attends Kendall College of Art and Design and is graduating from Crossroads Charter Academy. He would like to thank his family, his teachers, all of the libraries that he has frequented and the authors of books he has read. May it just be said, o generous parents, faculty, and literary institutions: we blame you for this.
