About the Artists: Joe and Jennifer Rutherford, a husband and wife artist team formerly of Plymouth, MI, now residing in Leroy, MI, have been creating art together for over 15 years..  They began painting wall murals in 1999.  Their murals now adorn the walls of over 300 homes, restaurants and businesses throughout Michigan and Ohio. In 2006 they decided to pursue what they were really passionate about - for Jennifer it was working with glass (stained glass, glass mosaics and fused glass) and for Joe it was metal sculpture. They have developed ways of combining glass and metal to create unique art pieces for the home and garden.  They have won numerous awards at the Delphi Art Glass competition including three first place!  They have also been invited to participate in the ArtPrize competition three times.  In 2012 they placed in the top 100 out of 1700, and in 2017 they placed in the top 25 in the sculpture category out of 1350 national and international artists. Jennifer and Joe Rutherford have been selling their artwork at Starring "The Gallery" for the last ten years.

  • About the Artist: Teresa Adler of Northville is a painter and mixed media artist. In many ways, she is an accidental artist. More than 20 years ago, something inside of her moved her to begin her career as an artist. What began with pastels, moved to acrylics and then to multimedia on canvas. Most recently Teresa’s interests have expanded into pebble art and jewelry design and creation. She finds that working with what nature has created is grounding and fulfilling. 

    Picasso said that art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life, and for Teresa, a deep desire to explore, learn and create has driven her to her work today. Teresa believes there is more to life than what is seen. Her work attempts to connect us with something within ourselves, something that, although unseen, is important and real. Even the simple stories in her pebble art hopefully bring out a joy within the person experiencing it giving life to a story simply told. 

    Teresa’s hope is that when you see her work at Starring “The Gallery”, you will get a glimpse of something inside you that brings you joy.

  • This is the Hillside-Style lamp (sometimes referred to as a Taliesin 3-Style).  It is based on a 1925 design by Frank Lloyd Wright and there are several versions, depending on the craftsman. It is all solid wood, handcrafted, and finished with two coats of Tung oil.  Each lamp takes approximately 80 hours to create.  Lighting is provided by five 15 watt maximum candelabra bulbs with two levels of illumination (incorporated in the switch).

  • Available in three types of wood - cherry, walnut and purple heart.

  • About the Artist: I picked up woodworking skills from my father who taught wooden boat building,and later cabinet making. I have a workshop at home where I create various interior design pieces. My interest has tended toward Prairie-Style work, with a slightly modern/Danish influence. I moved from Chicago to the Detroit area in the early 1980s to work with the automotive industry. I find both career paths allow me to use my creative and conceptual skills as well as a knack for function and strength.

  • "I don't create things . . . I bring nature's beauty to light". This fuels my passion for seeing art and function in everyday items and the wizardry of the human mind.
