Ann Arbor artist Sophie Grillet hosts Open Studio on Saturday


Local Ann Arbor artist Sophie Grillet is hosting an “Open Studio” from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 2 at 802 Mount Vernon Ave. in Ann Arbor. Grillet, who recently displayed her work at the local Westside Art Hop and at the Kensington Art Fair, is a graduate of the University of Brighton College of Art in the UK and also studied at the Central St Martins School of Art in London.

“Sunday can be for planting and contemplative pleasures, but Saturday is for fun,” she says. “Come on over to the charming West Side of Ann Arbor and join me for an Open Studio event – raise a glass and drink to Art!”

String Theory with 11 Dimensions’ can be suspended from the metal loop. Ask about it if you are curious!

Sophie also will host a Public Tour at UMMA at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 3.

“Professor Jim Cogswell’s extraordinary tour-de-force artwork, originally enveloping both the Kelsey Museum and UMMA, is now exclusive to Michigan’s Art Museum,” Sophie says. “It still relates to both, though, spanning the actual and cultural chasm between the museums.”

Sophie invites you to view it inside and out, interpreting the wild parade of strange characters and their struggles with tragedy and adversity, as she leads this free public tour.
