Travel Michigan Lately?

Beach Girl Photography by Jamie Hilliard is one of out newest artists at the Dancing Eye Gallery.

Jamie is a local photographer who supports traveling throughout Michigan. Her focus is Detroit, then and now, and the scenes of our beautiful state. Her photos will draw an "I remember that!" or an "Oh my gosh, that's beautiful!" response upon looking at them. They are mounted on her hand-crafted wooden blocks and can be hung on the wall.

Summer is coming to a close and if you didn't get a chance to take a trip throughout Michigan or down memory lane, a look at these photos will make you feel like you just returned!

Are You Ready for School?

Yes, kids and parents, that favorite time of year is fast approaching. No, not Christmas or  summer vacation, but The First Day of School!!!!

So we ask, "Are You Ready?"

Have you found that perfect pair of earrings or conversation-piece ring to go with that new favorite outfit? Did you get a Haney magnet board to post "To-Dos" or your shopping list or homework assignments? How about a scrabble necklace with your school logo on the front and your initial on the back? Verrryy cool!  Tote bag? Card for the new teacher? Apple???

The Dancing Eye Gallery has them all! Our door is open, the weather is gorgeous and the school clock is counting down. Tick, tock, tick, tock ... Don't be late or you might be sorry!

We're open Friday nights until 8, too.
