About the Lawrence Street Gallery

Our Gallery
The Lawrence Street Gallery is a fine arts gallery exhibiting a new show every month, with a spotlight exhibit in the front of the gallery and a large member exhibit in the rest of the gallery. All Lawrence Street Gallery shows are free and open to the public.
Our artists volunteer their time and skills toward managing and working the gallery. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our love of art.

Exhibit Receptions
We hold two receptions per month: an opening and mid-month usually the first and third Sundays at 2 – 4:30 pm. These are free events, with refreshments and sometimes live music and an accompanying event such as a poetry reading or exhibiting artist demonstration. Check the events calendar or call to confirm the date and time for any month.

Lawrence Street Gallery was established in 1987 by a small group of artists to showcase and sell their work in a gallery setting. Soon the membership expanded their goals to include work by other Michigan artists by opening up the gallery space for solo, 2-person and group exhibitions; holding juried competitions in several different media such as photography, printmaking, ceramics and drawing/figure exhibitions; and inviting other admired artists to participate in invitational exhibitions. In the past there have been “Art as Fashion” shows, “Art Jewelry” shows, creativity classes, poetry readings, artist book signings, and lectures reflecting the interests of the member artists. 

Exhibits change monthly and occasionally a theme will be the impetus for a small show within the gallery of member artists. Members are also encouraged to have their own solo shows. A lively, creative group that cares to display other area artists’ work along with their own leads to exhibitions that contain interesting and well-represented media. On display at the gallery are unique artistic pieces in a wide range of media including acrylic, oil, watercolor and pastel paintings, drawings, collage, fibers, prints, ceramics, black and white, color, and experimental photography, metal, clay, bronze, and wood sculpture, jewelry and painted furniture.

Our first address was at 29 West Lawrence Street (hence the name) in Pontiac, MI. It was in an old Salvation Army building with a high ceiling, glorious windows and wood floors. The membership increased and a new location was found at 6 N. Saginaw, in Pontiac, to house the additional membership and expanded goals. The Gallery moved to its third (and current) location in December 2003: a totally new space designed to house the works of its members and additional exhibitions. This is the current location at 22620 Woodward Ave in Ferndale, MI.
