Experience Downtown Northville
the First Friday of Every Month
Artwalk ~ Shopping ~ Dining
5:00pm - 9:00pm
The first Friday of every month the merchants of Downtown Northville welcome you to browse their galleries and boutiques.  You'll be greeted with featured artists, trunk shows, demonstrations, and specialty products and offered a complimentary hors d’oeuvre and glass of wine. 
Make a date to spend the evening in Downtown Northville – grab a bite to eat at one of our many restaurants, stroll our picturesque streets, do a little shopping, and learn about a new art style.  It’s a great way to spend a Friday night with family and friends!   

"Small Works" First Friday Opening Reception at the Northville Art House

 "Small Works," an All-Media Juried Art Exhibit at the Northville Art House, is back by popular demand and here just in time for the holiday gift-giving season! This exhibit showcases works of art limited to 12" x 12" by artists from throughout metro Detroit and several other states. We chose 120 artworks from over 270 entries, with painting, drawing, sculpture, jewelry making, and many other disciplines represented.The opening reception for this exhibit will be held on Friday November 6th from 6-9 pm. 

The Northville Art House also is sponsoring our 7th annual "A Taste of Northville" Basket Raffle Friday, November 6, 2015 through December 4, when the winners will be drawn on Northville's First Friday. Thank you to the Northville Businesses that have donated this year, last year the Art House raffled off 17 baskets worth $350 each and raised over $2,000. Raffle tickets are $1 each (11 for $10)
