On behalf of my daughter (Grace) and myself (Melissa),
Welcome to Eggleston Gallery and Studios!

 

Eggleston Gallery and Studios is the natural product of a lifetime spent engaging art and wildlife.   Here at the gallery, we seek to fulfill our roles as both stewards and beneficiaries of the natural world and of our local community however we can, and we are thrilled that we can promote this passion right here in Bath Township.   Growing up on the farmland that is currently the Peacock Road Tree Farm formed my love of nature and informed my artistic voice.   The rivers, woods, fields, parks, and lakes in this part of Michigan will always speak to me.

We designed our space to blend our love for art and nature, creating what we hope is a joyful retreat for our guests.   Our galleries contain our own art, as well as the featured work of local artists whose talents and voices we hold in high regard.   Our gallery also contains a classroom area for anyone who would like to practice their craft or try their hand at something new.   We have open studio hours, as well as classes taught by myself or other local artists ready to share their knowledge, techniques, and creations with us.   Information on these can be found on our “Classes and Events” page.   The final portion of our space is my personal studio.   Our space is a gallery where you can see plenty of finished artwork, but it is also a working studio where you can see me and others in the process of creating art in a variety of mediums.   Our hope is that showcasing the creative process from start to finish will inspire those around us both to appreciate the beauty of nature and to try creating art of their own.

And we never would have come this far without the support we have received from the artists, friends, and neighbors that have taken an interest in our projects. A big “thank you” to you all! We adore our community, and in an attempt to give back we try to create opportunities to celebrate and cultivate local culture and talent wherever we can.   Whether you are an art creator, an art admirer, or both, we would love for you to become a part of our community.   A simple way to do this is to join our email list.   We will send you periodic updates about the events and happenings at the gallery and studio. You will also hear about our new works and featured artists as they are available.

If you’re interested in learning more about myself or any of our frequent collaborators, check out their pages. Thank you for reading about the gallery, and please come visit us at some point!

Best wishes,
Melissa Eggleston
