Art House


Be a pART of it!  During the month of June the Northville Art House will feature a different exhibit in each of its two Galleries.  In the Lower Gallery, the Art House is proud to present “Restrospective”, a selection of photographs from the vast collection by William S. Demray, DDS.   Dr. Demray, founder of Preservation Dental, has lived and worked in historic Northville for more than 30 years.  He has journeyed to exotic and romantic locations throughout the world and has had the privilege of experiencing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities – always with a camera in hand. 

William Demray has been interested in photography since a child when he first experimented with a Brownie camera.  Family photos were taken with a Kodak 2x2 Negative Box Camera; today Demray’s choice of equipment is a Canon 40D, which allows him to capture motion in fractions of seconds.  His interest in photography helps him to remember the beautiful moments that may get lost in the press of life.  His photos always reflect a favorite quote of his, “How things look depends on your point of view”.  Sometimes where a photo is taken is as interesting as the shot itself and Demray has traveled widely to get an interesting point of view.  The Retrospective exhibit features shots from the Canadian cities of Banff, Vancouver and Tofino, the European cities of Prague, Ravello, Budapest, and Paris as well as special places in the United States including Key West, San Francisco and, of course, Northville. 

In addition to this exhibit, our Upper Gallery will feature our contemporary annual all media show entitled 
West of Center.  Both exhibits will open with an artist reception on Friday, June 4, from 6-9 p.m. 
Retrospective will continue through June 24 and West of Center will be exhibited through June 26 during Art House Gallery hours (Wednesdays-Saturdays, 1-5 p.m.).  For additional information, call 248-344-0497 or visit www.northvillearts.org. The Art House is located at 215 W. Cady Street and is a facility of the Northville Arts Commission.  Admission to Art House exhibits is always free and open to the public.
