Ninth Annual Exhibition

Ninth Annual Exhibition

Announcement Date: September 1, 1937

By the ninth year, the increasing popularity of the annual exhibition grew beyond a small community enterprise to include artists not only from Grosse Pointe but from neighboring communities such as Detroit, Wyandotte, Highland Park, and Romeo.

Only eleven of the twenty-six exhibitors hailed from Grosse Pointe.  While a Detroit Free Press critic described “the purpose of the exhibition is the promotion of interest in art by providing opportunity for artists and art students to display their work annually,” a Detroit News reporter noted that “it has grown in interest and in the quality of the art work.”
