About J. Petter Galleries

J. Petter Galleries is located in a unique 12,000 square foot fine art gallery building that first housed area artists in the 1930s.  It was reintroduced as the Joyce Petter Gallery in 1993. The Art Gallery, located on The Art Coast of Michgian,  now features an eclectic collection of fine paintings, sculpture, glass, and more. The galleries are also home to Petter Wine Gallery where you’ll find boutique wines and artful foods at both the wine/small plates bar and wine shop. The Wine Bar/Shop is also known for its private collection of unique cheeses and hand poured chocolates. Of course, you may walk the galleries with a glass from our wine bar.

If folks think they have to drive to the big city for quality art and quality wine–they are mistaken. They should visit J. Petter Galleries. This place is a gem. Whenever we have out of town guests we bring them to see this gallery.
