Are you ready to get wiggy?

Are you ready to get wiggy with it?
2018 was the 6th Annual Wine & Wig. The event is a perennial favorite that combines a light-hearted, fun-filled night of camaraderie with fundraising for a serious cause. Attendees enjoy food, wine and auctions all while wearing wigs as a sign of solidarity with women coping with breast cancer or a cancer treatment that causes hair loss.

Charity Partners

Four local cancer charities and West Michigan Woman Magazine have joined forces to find a cure for breast cancer and support local women with research, diagnostic, treatment and emotional support.

Featured speaker
Timothy Penning, Ph.D., APR, Fellow PRSA is a tenured professor who teaches courses in public relations and communication management in the School of Communications at Grand Valley State University. Tim’s wife, Cindy Kikkert-Penning, was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in February 2012, and a brain tumor in December 2013. Throughout her chemo, radiation, surgeries and countless appointments—which continue today—Tim has been by Cindy’s side. The pair were featured on WZZM last year as Cindy prepared for her 17th consecutive Fifth Third River Bank Run. Tim will share his perspective as a caregiver during a cancer journey.

CityScene-TownerThe Holland Area Arts Council is kicking off 2012 with galleries full of new exhibits.
Trees: A Closer Look. The Etchings of Ladislav Hanka and Sculpture of Marcia Perry
Is a combination of work by internationally recognized Kalamazoo based printmaker Ladislav Hanka and Saugatuck sculptor Marcia Perry. The two have shown work together recently in South Haven and this exhibit promises another well stitched revealing of their deep respect and admiration for the sacred tree motif. 


This exhibit will be available for public viewing in the Barbara Padnos Gallery and Amanda Jane Armstrong Gallery from January 9 through February 25.

Letting Paint Be Paint: Splashes, Drips and Smears offers a collaboration between three painters: Christine Towner, Michele Gort and Emerson Schreiner. All three are local painters associated with the Washington Square Gallery in Holland, Michigan. With an emphasis on expression, the artists invite the viewer to join them in a celebration and exploration of the physical qualities of the medium.


This exhibit will be available for public viewing in the Mainstreet Gallery and Lievense Gallery from January 9 through February 25.

An artists’ opening reception will be held in the galleries Thursday, January 12th from 6pm to 8pm. This event is free and open to the public.
