‘Corn Lineup’ Debuts on Scarves at Turtle Ridge

Turtle Ridge Gallery is introducing a cashmere scarf with a new, autumnal art piece featured on it: the “Corn Lineup” design, created by gallery owner Mary Ellen Sisulak. 

Indigenous people in prehistoric Mesoamerica domesticated flint corn or maize as a food source, and Sisulak said, “I have always been fascinated by the diversity of color and beauty of the kernels. I decided to paint my subject as individual ears with individually articulated kernels, lined up with the strappy leaves on a white, textured background in water-soluble encaustic and hot wax. These media allow me to have luminosity, layers, detail and texture.”

“Corn Lineup” is printed on beech fiber and cashmere for a large, cozy scarf that reflects rich autumnal colors.

Turtle Ridge Gallery (, 11736 Mink River Road in Ellison Bay, is open daily, 11 am – 4 pm.
