Herb David's Is Dancing Dog



David Guitar Studio. (David retired this past spring, and the third floor is continuing as a guitar repair shop, now named Ann Arbor Guitars.) Finley is responsible for the name too. "We were voting on names--I think we had settled on something like City Gallery--and I mentioned that I once had a design studio in Colorado called Dancing Dog."

"It was fun, whimsical. It struck just the right note," says Sarah Clark Davis, a painter who often works with animal subjects. Painter Molly Indura created the gallery's logo, a juggling dog.

The group has eight narratives about how the partnership materialized. Most, though not all, knew each other through Ann Arbor Women Artists.

Finley and photographer Matruka Sherman are both psychotherapists as well as artists. Several of the partners teach at the Ann Arbor Art Center. Painter and sculptor Sophie Grillet and Susan Clinthorne, who does "social art installations," as well as more traditional watercolors and pastels, are both docents at UMMA. What is a "social art installation"? See her latest, called "Broken," at ArtPrize this month in Grand Rapids--it will be at the Fountain Street Church.
