March 2013: Miracles Amoung Us,
Kelly's Kidz and Miracle League with Nick Bair
This month's exhbit was a collaborative exhibit featuring the Art of Nick Bair and photographs from Kelly's Kidz' photographer, Tony Simler, and fan photos from the Bilkie Family Miracle League Field of Dreams right here in Plymouth! The purpose of the exhibit was to provide a backdrop for 2 "Friendraising" events, and to bring awareness to both Miracle League Plymouth, and Kelly's Kidz as advocate organizations for those with physical challenges and their families.
Nick Bair's artwork, highly detailed pen and ink drawings and paintings, was chosen as a companion exhibit to the awareness campaign because of his technical and artistic abilities, which become even more remarkable when one discovers that he is an artist with autism.

February 2013: Gary Grimshaw & Artists for the Band Moonalice
From PCAC Exhibit Director, Lisa Howard...
“We are so excited to bring this historic and relevant graphic design exhibit to our Plymouth audience. Gary Grimshaw was instrumental in creating the psychedelic rock poster art style that we associate with the 1960s and 70s, today. We are honored to have such an iconic artist visit our gallery. Many thanks to the Lido Gallery in Birmingham for helping to make this exhibit and the signing event a reality.”
“ Chris Shaw and his artists have created posters for each of Moonalice’s concerts. Their range of styles and artistic influences are impressive, with over 550 posters in the Moonalice collection to date. The art posters travel as an exhibit themselves, both with the band and independent of the band, showing in major cities throughout the United States."
Gary Grimshaw's talent has kept him in demand and in the spotlight in a career covering the rock scenes in Michigan and the San Francisco area for over four decades. For those of us in the Detroit area, Grimshaw's work was our introduction to the psychedelic era. He was the primary poster and light show artist for Detroit's Grande Ballroom through 1969. These works stand out as the centerpiece of an enormously prolific output of art from the mid-1960’s to the late 1970’s.
