An exhibition of recent paintings by popular Bay City Artist Michelle Courier opens Monday, August 25, as the SVSU University Art Gallery begins its Fall 2008 exhibition season. The display will feature 25 canvases from the acclaimed artist's dazzling series of landscape paintings. While the landscapes at first appear realistically portrayed, the images shimmer with light and color, creating an idealized, almost dreamlike effect.
