Spring Arbor will feature Ray Schmitz at a show and reception on May 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Spring Arbor art gallery.
Schmitz lives with his wife and rescue dog, Willow, in Elm City.
Schmitz says he is a self-taught artist with a lifetime of experience as an illustrator for 3-M Corporation. He is now a freelancer.
“Illustrating requires satisfying very specific client needs; painting allows me the freedom to do what I choose," he said.
"The transition requires a new way of thinking for me and hopefully others will enjoy the results.”
The public is invited to attend the reception.
Spring Arbor Senior Assisted Living is located at 2045 Ward Blvd.
