October 6 – 31, 2023
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 7 at 2–4 pm

Color | Ink Studio & Gallery is pleased to present “Michigan Colored Pencil 2023”, a juried exhibition of colored pencil art by Michigan and northern Ohio artists sponsored by the Detroit chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America. The show opens on October 6 and runs through October 31.

Colored wax crayons have been used by artists for centuries, but modern wax and oil-based colored pencils were invented in the early 20th century. Subsequent development of new techniques and methods for working with them have made the colored pencil a versatile tool for creating the exciting fine art on display in this exhibition. Juror Amy Foster has made a wonderful selection of the best work from artists using this medium.

The public is invited to attend the Opening Reception on Saturday, October 7 from 2-4 pm. It’s free, and guests will have the opportunity to meet the artists in person and talk about the artwork. Light refreshments will be offered. The exhibition will be on display online at ColorInkStudio.com and in the Gallery, which is open most weekdays by appointment. The Gallery is located at 20919 John R Rd. in Hazel Park and can be reached by email at Gallery@ColorInkStudio.com or by phone at 248-398-6119.

Once the exhibition opens, you’ll be able to start your visit to the Gallery by exploring a virtual tour of the exhibition.
