The Start Gallery connects new artists who have a great amount of talent with resources and prime space to exhibit. With a platform of presenting primarily solo shows, we give each artist free reign to exhibit the full spectrum of their talents. Founded in 2011, we have exposed seasoned gallery goers and newcomers alike to over 100 first-time exhibiting artists.

This month we partner with AIGA Detroit to host Drink & Draw! AIGA will provide markers, colored pencils, crayons and more…. All you need to do is bring your creativity. All skill levels are welcome. For those of you who need a little inspiration there will be a list of fun and interesting primers to inspire you.

The Zenith Index of Public Record (ZIPR) Magazine is new arts publication out of Detroit and strives to be the go-to-source for experiencing Detroit through art and culture. Featuring a custom artist sticker page, in-depth artist interviews, our Guide to the Gallery and Museum Districts of Detroit and much more, ZIPR is truly built by artists, for artists.

Please note that space is limited to only 200 attendees, so please arrive early! We can’t wait to see familiar faces and new ones in February!
