Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery is holding their Contemporary Rural American Art Show on June 24. Meet the featured artists: Sara Vanderkleed, Carol and Mark Pflughoeft. All will be at the gallery to answer questions and discuss their creative process. Vanderkleed will paint on site from 11 am to 12:30 pm and the Pflughoefts will host a question and answer session at 1:30 and 2 pm.
Vanderkleed hails from rural Lafayette, Ind. These roots are echoed in “Ferris Wheels,” a new series of paintings. She captures the landscape and colors of Indiana fields and farms.
Carol is a pioneering 21st century artist, combining original nature photography with fractal images to create dynamic and intriguing prints. Beautifully framed, these pieces have the power to fascinate and delight. Find the familiar in the abstract and let her walk you through how she turns math into stunning works of art.
Mark uses organic and geometric contrasts to create a unique interpretation of what he sees around him. His modern work is inspired by the view of the landscape from an airplane window. His paintings reflect the “lush and textured earth surfaces…a topographical patchwork quilt.” His starkly juxtaposed elements are the key to the success of his paintings.
Plum Bottom will celebrate all day with von Stiehl wine and coffee from Door County Coffee & Tea.
Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery is now open 10 am – 5 pm daily. To visit go 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or five minutes south of Egg Harbor on Highway 42 then east on Plum Bottom Road to 4999 Plum Bottom Rd.
