Cappaert will demonstrate her oil and cold wax painting techniques in the gallery courtyard on Sept. 4, 1 – 3 pm. Cappaert concentrates on color, texture, line and shape when creating her minimalist landscape paintings. She uses a process of applying paint in many layers, then scraping and gouging to create a subtle, quiet effect to each of her oil paintings.

Hale’s paintings are a reflection of her personality, cheerful and bright. Her paintings include the vibrant use of color along with a sense of optimism.

Wilde captures rural Wisconsin landscapes and wildlife in his diverse paintings. Wilde’s extensive knowledge of birds and nature is apparent in his exquisite and accurate oil paintings.

Bushinski’s jewelry showcases the rugged beauty of earthy designs crafted for everyday wear. Her collection focuses on texture, color and composition. Bushinski often uses salvaged birch bark, reclaimed copper and semi-precious stones.
