Heartland_Winter_1The Heartland Artists Gallery in downtown Plymouth is displaying ‘Winter Wonderland’ art from their Member Artists in the month of December. The assignment was to capture Winter at it’s best and the members did just that.

Heartland_winter_2They captured it in photography, oils, pastels, acrylic, gourd sculptures and so much more. And the theme is presented in so many ways: on the Gallery walls, sculptures and pottery on the shelves, jewelry, notecards and more. The Gallery also has the Christmas Gift Shoppe open with artistic finds of decor or gifts. The Gallery is open for shopping and/or just taking a moment and enjoying the ‘Art Experience’ at your Gallery!


Heartland_Christmas Tree Raffle 2015The Gallery would like to ‘Thank the community’ for their interest and support with our Annual Christmas Tree Raffle this year. The Gallery is a not-for-profit group and this project is our fund raiser for the year.

The Raffle included a 6’ lit pencil-shaped Christmas tree that was displayed at the Gallery and an 18” white Christmas wreath which traveled during November at the Coffee Lodge, Plymouth Public Library, Marshall County Historical Museum & Crossroads Center and City Centre. Both tree and wreath were decorated with artistic ornaments made by the artists within a color scheme and ‘Winter Wonderland’ theme.
