Downtown Cedarville businesses open their doors through 8 pm on the first Thursday of every month through the summer. Start at the Old Shell Gallery at the corner of M-134 and Meridian to get your map, sign up for prize drawings, and kick off the fun with special activities. Continue on a self-guided tour down Meridian, across Hodeck Street, and to businesses along the M-134 Pure Michigan Byway.
We make our home in a place where water is interwoven with land like nowhere else on earth. From here we draw inspiration from the gentle landscape and softly rolling waters of protected bays.
A collection of fine artists and traditional craft makers form the Les Cheneaux Area Artisan Cooperative. We take pride in the quality and diversity of art that our members create, from wooden boats to hand-blown glass. We hope to serve our community and visitors as a source of creative inspiration.
We sponsor two member-driven events each year, Music and Art Dockside in July and Art in the Park in September, and operate a seasonal gallery - the Old Shell Gallery - at the corner of M-134 and M-129 in Cedarville. We hope that you come and visit!
The Artisan Cooperative's purpose is: ~ To expand the market for items our members create ~ To develop and implement marketing tools for members ~ To develop educational tools for members ~ To encourage new artists and craftsmen
