J. Petter Galleries
Historical multi-level fine art gallery is near the Saugatuck-Douglas Bridge on Blue Star Highway. Home to fine art, art events, a wine bar plus retail wine and gourmet food shop. Established in a unique 12,000 square foot Fine Art Gallery building that first housed Saugatuck area artists in the 1930’s as artist Carl Hoerman’s River Guild Gallery. Reintroduced as the Joyce Petter Gallery in 1993, and as J Petter Galleries in 2015, the galleries feature a large eclectic collection of fine paintings, sculpture, glass, textiles, ceramics and more. The galleries are also home to Petter Wine Gallery – Wine Bar & Wine Shop - where you’ll find fine wines, artisan foods, private collection cheeses, hand-poured chocolates and specialty gifts. And yes, you can walk the galleries AND the adjacent, Upscale Mercantile, a vintage art & décor emporium, with a glass of wine.
