The work of Door County still life and portrait painter Archelle “Buttons” Wolst will be featured in the Door County Community Foundation’s lobby gallery. A reception for the exhibit will be held Feb. 16, 4:30-6 pm.
Wolst’s work is defined by simple shapes and strong compositions. For this show, she has painted several friends who have contributed greatly to Door County, as well as her favorite flowers: peonies and sunflowers.
“What I love about painting, whatever the medium, is the surprise of the outcome,” Wolst said. “I might start with an idea and then, as the painting progresses, things come about that I hadn’t an inkling of when I started.”
Wolst will donate all profits from the exhibit to the Door County Community Foundation.
The Community Foundation is located at 222 N 3rd Ave. in Sturgeon Bay.
