Hurray! Summer is coming (slowly) here in Leelanau County. The ice has gone away, and we are turning green. How nice it will be to welcome back our summer and year 'round friends to our own unique, happy shopping experience. Artists have been busy during the quiet days of winter. It is great to see their creativity and beautiful works, like spring blossoms. Come see what is new.
150+ ARTISTS : ALL AMERICAN, MOSTLY MICHIGAN, LOTS OF LOCAL...
The Painted Bird is a gallery of contemporary American crafts in Suttons Bay, Michigan in the beautiful Leelanau County. The website is fun to explore. Browse by the type of crafts, or by the artists you may know or want to know. Looking for beach stone jewelry, silver earrings, or a scarf or a certain artist? Just type it in the search box...
The site shows the work of most of our artists. There is more in the store, not on the site so contact us for images of current work on hand. Since some artists' work is one of a kind, you should look at the images as examples of work. Talk to us and we can show you virtually all that is here to see, and talk about custom orders by an artist... a true shopping trip!
