Base Camp Host “Prints Charming” Exhibit

“Getting Along Swimmingly” by Kay McKinley Arneson.

“Prints Charming,” an exhibit of limited edition gicleé prints by pastel artist, Kay McKinley Arneson, is on display at Base Camp Coffee Bar, 10904 Hwy 42 in Sister Bay, now through July 10. A public reception will be held on Saturday, May 30, from 6 – 8 pm.

The prints, which are printed with archival materials by Arneson herself, are of the artist’s most recent work. Arneson’s subject matter ranges from loosely painted landscapes near her home in Ellison Bay to “Getting Along Swimmingly,” a more abstract work representing a group of women in retro bathing caps relaxing in water.

“Afternoon Reflection” by Kay McKinley Arneson.

This is the third consecutive summer that Arneson, who is Director of Marketing and Exhibitions at Peninsula School of Art, will exhibit her work at Base Camp. According to owner Joel Kersebet, the display of Arneson’s colorful works is a visual cue that the season has arrived.

“Kay’s early summer show has become a tradition at Base Camp,” he says. “Her energetic prints represent the joie de vivre of summer.”

Base Camp Coffee Bar, located below Ecology Sports, serves specialty coffee drinks, teas, bakery and light luncheon items. The café is open daily from 7:30 am – 4 pm.
