Butcher’s Daughter gallery increases Ferndale’s artsy rep

The 650-square-foot space
for Monica Bowman’s new gallery is no stranger to art. Its location
above Woodward Percussion has served as studio space for artists for
years and is now home to The Butcher’s Daughter gallery.

“Ferndale
has an established gallery syndicate,” Bowman says. “It’s a great,
open-minded, diverse community that loves art. I want to capitalize on
what it already has going for it.”

Bowman named the art gallery after herself. She is the sister, daughter, and granddaughter of butchers. The Butcher’s Daughter moniker just makes sense for those who know Bowman, not to mention it sounds cool.

The
gallery will focus on contemporary art from emerging artists in the
Detroit and Washington D.C. area. The works of the first featured
artist, Monica Elizabeth Breen, will run through the rest of this week.
The next artist, Lisa Marie Thalhammer, will kick off her exhibit on
Oct. 24 with an artist talk.
