I had the most wonderful day exploring amazing boutiques and galleries up north on the Lake Michigan side of the State. I am so grateful to my "tour guide" for such an amazing trip. I was enchanted by the tile work and incredible mixed media pieces at the Rubini Gallery and the absolutely breathtaking glaze work of the artist next door. Michigan is home to some truly gifted artisans.
The last gallery we visited was a place called Trick Dog. Seriously folks, this is somewhere I would have never found on my own. It is off the beaten path but, it is so worth the trip. I am a total sucker for the bright and out of the ordinary. Coming into the parking lot made me "just know" this would be my type of place. We got there right about closing time so, I was truly grateful that the owner let us in to poke around a bit. All in all, it was a day I will never forget.
