Artists Among Us Opens Oct. 21

“Artists Among Us,” an all-media juried art competition and exhibition, returns to the Padzieski Gallery Oct. 21-Nov. 13.

The gallery is located inside of the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave. in Dearborn.

Hosted by the Wayne County Council for the Arts, History and Humanities, with support from the Dearborn Community Arts Council, the annual show features works of all mediums. Artworks are submitted for consideration, and accepted for inclusion in the show by a panel of jurors from the WCCAHH Exhibition Committee.

The community is invited to come and see the accepted works, including the winners chosen by the committee!

About the WCCAHH: The purpose of the Council is to act in cooperation with Wayne County arts and humanities organizations, federal, state and local governments to increase knowledge, understanding, appreciation and support of arts and humanities programs. The goal is to enhance the quality of life throughout Wayne County while simultaneously fostering and preserving an appreciation of the diverse culture, history and art of Wayne County.
