Art Upstairs Gallery

Lakeside Art Studios
Oct. 31- Dec. 12
Reception: Nov. 4 at 3 pm

Lakeside Art Studio is the working studio of artist Dannielle Mick. The space is nestled in the scenic lakeside community of Parsippany, New Jersey. The school offers in-depth art instruction and private instruction in a variety of media suitable for students of all ages and skill levels.

Teaching is done both in the studio and outdoors plein aire. Inspiration translates from the local lakeshore scenery into the light and airy studio.

The studio holds classes and workshops year round. They are offered days, evenings, and weekends and are updated frequently. Students from LAS literally learn to see their world in a new way. The impact on their art can be significant. A newly developed vision changes their appreciation of life and surroundings and enhances creative awareness. Students bond together and share a common artistic and personal journey.

About The Art Upstairs Gallery:

The Art Upstairs Gallery, located in the balcony lobby of MPAC, showcases visual artists from a variety of disciplines, including watercolor, oils, photography, sculpture and more. Each year, the works of over 200 artists are showcased in group exhibits. Each exhibit hangs from six to eight weeks. Groups that have been showcased include the Essex Watercolor Club, New Jersey Photography Forum, Millburn-Short Hills Art Center and more.

The gallery provides a unique opportunity to marry the visual and performing arts, and to provide exposure to these artists to an audience that may not normally frequent an art gallery.

Artwork is available for purchase. The Gallery is open two hours prior to showtime and by appointment. For more information, please contact Charles Miller at

The Art Upstairs Gallery is a gift of the John and Margaret Post Foundation.
