The owners and management of the beautiful Inn at Harbor Shores invites artists and art lovers to celebrate the opening of The Inn’s art gallery and inaugural exhibition during an "Art at The Inn” reception to be held on June 27. Founders of The Inn have a unique relationship to the arts and are pleased to host an event introducing guests of The Inn and the larger community to art and artists in the permanent collection and the first featured artists in the rotating gallery. 

 "We believe the story of a place can be told through artists conveying memorable impressions and history. Artists tell complex stories with more subtlety and elegance than traditional media. We believe guests will return and will influence friends, having come away with lasting impressions and an understanding of the history and fabric of our community. Original art enhances The Inn’s quality statement while providing Michigan Artists a showcase”, says Ron Schults, a principal player in development of The Inn. 

In recognition of the wealth and depth of talent of Michigan artists; the art program has two components being a permanent collection displayed in rooms and public areas and rotating exhibitions in the Gallery curated by Susan Wilczak. Highlights of the evening will be oil paintings of various Southwest Michigan scenes by St. Joseph artist Kris Hosbein, whose work is the featured in the Gallery through August 4, 2014 along with April Wagner from Pontiac, Michigan who has created a signature suspended sculpture in the main lobby consisting of over 500 hand blown glass pieces. Please join us as we celebrate the talents of these artists plus many more featured throughout The Inn at Harbor Shores on Friday, June 27, 2014 from 7 to 10 pm. Many of the featured artists will be attending!
