About the Juror: Candace Law is a full time artist in the Detroit area. After receiving degrees and working in other fields, she earned a BFA in Architectural Illustration, but found herself drawn to fine art. Her current body of work focuses on encaustic (hot wax) and mixed media, especially incorporating found objects.“Art for me is a means of communicating about our environment, our lives, sharing our experiences, and reflecting how they inform each other.” Her exhibits include several solo shows as well as numerous regional and national exhibitions—both invitational and juried competitions. Her work has appeared in Encaustic Arts magazine, as well as the Studio Visit publication, and is in a number of private collections, including at Detroit’s Historic Trinity Church. Candace teaches encaustic workshops and works from her studio in Berkley (MI).

Downtown Northville

Downtown Northville - Timeless...with a Twist
Imagine the timeless things you would have encountered as you strolled Downtown in 1950, like the smell of freshly baked bread wafting out the bakery on Main Street, bicycles with baskets on the handlebars, the mayor walking down the front steps of City Hall, kids on the sidewalks laughing with ice cream cones in hand, and your neighbors waving to you from Town Square on Friday evening as music fills the night air.


Take all of this tradition and hometown feel and add a little twist of…sophisticated art galleries, wine shops, the latest fashions, and the culinary delights you have come to expect as a discerning Downtown patron.


The best of all worlds, this is Downtown Northville.
