“Best gallery in the region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I finally had the chance to visit this gallery in its new space and was quite pleasantly surprised. I loved their old building but the new one is broken into several interesting spaces and allows for what seems like a lot more art. LaFontsee has always had quality work, but now seems heads above the rest in the West Michigan area as many others have stopped showing as much art and are focusing more on home dec items. This gallery displays a nice variety of abstract and figurative work, an interesting mix of painting, sculpture, mixed media, fine art, and fine craft, from ceramics to jewelry. They also have a framing area and carry a large selection of posters/prints (many by local artists) and small paintings that are great for those of us with smaller budgets.
