On OPEN Saturdays, the Denisons are affable and
    amiable(they take turns). You are not interrupting
    their work day. During the week they go back to their
    reclusive, work focused lives.
The Denison Art Studio and gallery is in
one wing of the Denisons art filled house.

The Denisons hang some of their own art in
their home, so a gallery visit may include a
peek at their house and collections, as well as
furniture the artists have made for
themselves. Dandelion, their 29 year old
Amazon parrot,  usually flies free in the house
and studio, but is
ALWAYS caged when
there are visitors.
    Additional fun in Benzie County:
    Swim at the many uncrowded public sugar
    sand beaches along Lake Michigan.
    Walk the shoreline for miles(and rarely see
    another person or cottage).
    Hike the wonderful trails in the SLEEPING BEAR
    DUNES NATIONAL SHORELINE.
    Camp.
    Bicycle everywhere, especially on the Betsie
    Valley Rail Trail.
    Canoe/kayak the many inland lakes and
    rivers.
    ALSO, there are many great restaurants,
    shopping , and art galleries, including, the not
    to be missed, TRICK DOG GALLERY in nearby
    Elberta.
    For a very special outing,visit the BETSIE RIVER
    CENTENNIAL LILY FARM.
AND....a super bonus
