2021 Events

Open Studio Saturdays

We enjoy connecting the resident visual artists with the local community for Open Studio Saturday Events. During the open studio hours the community has the opportunity to meet the artist and see their work. This is also just a great time for community to connect while enjoying art.

Please see the Open Studio Saturday page for dates for the 2021 events.

Coffee @ Ten with Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann

Friday, August 20, 2021 at 10:00 am

Crooked Tree Arts Center – Petoskey

Artist Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann’s larger-than-life abstract paintings and installations are rooted in the traditions of Chinese landscape painting. Through her imaginative and fantastical representation of the natural world, her work explores the tension between what is natural and unnatural; organic and inorganic. 

In this artist talk, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann will talk about her inspiration and process.
