Good day on this cloudy Wednesday.
Still trying to find a holiday gift for the artsy person in your social circle? Lansing Art Gallery and MICA Gallery both have options. Each holiday season, the galleries open their showrooms to local artists to display and sell their work. Patrons are treated to an extensive variety of works by local and regional artists including paintings, photographs, ceramics, textiles, jewelry and much more. Both galleries have shows full of for-sale art until Dec. 23rd. You can read more about them in City Pulse's article here.
