Get Hygge in the Gallery at Pour’d
To welcome new friends and celebrate their Grand Opening, Pour-d Gallery has curated a selection of family-friendly artwork in the theme of Hygge.
(Hygge is a Danish word that loosely translated, means “the art of contentment.” Its aim is to help people slow down and find a sense of calm.)

All ages are encouraged to visit the exhibition and entry is free all days of the week. Gather-d Collection hopes that the space will be a new destination for families and friends to gather.

ABOUT THE POUR-D GALLERY & THE HYGGE EXHIBIT
The gallery at Pour-d exhibits artwork from a diverse group of established and emerging artists. It provides the community with opportunities for direct involvement and exchange with visual arts. In addition, the gallery provides a host of supplementary programs in support of the exhibitions, including lectures, performances, readings, and workshops.
This is the first exhibition curated by the Gather-d Collection’s creative director, Theresa Anderson. A dream come to reality for the West Michigan-based artist, Anderson hopes that people of all walks will feel welcome in the gallery and create community through creativity.
Experience the Tea Bar at Pour-d
Those who enter the gallery will also have the opportunity to explore the Pour-d Tea Bar and Art Studio. The Gather-d collection has partnered with Michigan-based and local favorite, Fraser Tea to create a seasonal and in-house collection of teas that pair well with the hygge atmosphere.
The Pour-d Tea bar brings a new experience to West Michigan.
A tea-forward establishment offers a contemporary alternative to the traditional coffee shop.
Nestled inside the Pour-d gallery, the tea bar is an ideal place to sit and savor a classic or pick out something new with their in-house tea expert.
The Gather-d collection hopes that all who come to view the exhibition will appreciate the innovative space and the desire to pour into others in more ways than just tea.
