Changes at Greco Gallery

Following a successful second season, Greco Gallery, “An Artistic Boutique,” is expanding. The cooperative gallery and shop, which is staffed by member artists, formerly shared space with founder Kelly Avenson’s photography studio and her fiancée Elliot Geottelman’s drafting business. Now that the couple purchased the building, Avenson Photography and Green Door Drafting have relocated to the second floor, making room downstairs for a total of 16 local artists.

Also, Sturgeon Bay crafter and stylist Katie Starr redesigned the first floor. To see Starr’s work, search ‘Small Town Vintage’ on Facebook.

The latest artist to join the gallery is Martha Coaty, a Wisconsin native who has practiced the art of photography for over 30 years. She has received juror’s awards at the Hardy Gallery and Miller Art Museum, and was the recipient of the Peninsula Pulse’s Hal Grutzmacher award in 2011.

Coaty has an eye for the overlooked beauty of the world. Her photographs of rustic buildings and vintage objects are like portraits of a time gone by. For more information, visit

Greco Gallery, located at 24 N. Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, is open 10 am – 4 pm Monday, Wednesday & Thursday and 10 am – 5 pm Friday and Saturday.
