Current Exhibit:

Henry Droski

June 5 - July 31

"I find inspiration in the serenity and simplicity of Asian art, integrating line and balance of space. I am relishing each day with meditation; experiencing an everchanging world and finding the visual interplay of light in the most interesting places."

Henry Droski is a self-taught photographer native to Grand Rapids who has been re-energized to the art of photography since 2008. His portfolio includes life, social events, and commercial work. He has been accepted and awarded in juried art exhibits. Currently, his focus is the artistic representation of landscapes and life's experiences.
