MiArt gallery owner and artist Michèle Grindberg is currently
expanding the gallery’s footprint to include a workspace in the garage
that will accommodate a variety of mediums and provide visitors
the opportunity to watch the artists in action. The new studio will
also host art classes, from painting to woodworking and a how-to
for power tools, led by William Saol who has a bachelor’s degree in
fine art. Meanwhile, MiArt gallery still offers Michèle’s fun, vibrant
paintings, created entirely with a palette knife instead of brushes
to achieve a wonderful, 3D-like texture that is her trademark. Also
featured is a wide array of locally made, very unique sterling silver
jewelry pieces at affordable prices, the perfect gift for any occasion.
