DCAL Gallery Hosts Brunchette Reception

Watercolor by Maren Larsen.

The Door County Art League (DCAL) Gallery will showcase the artwork of Gale Ritchey and Maren Larsen from Aug. 17 – 23. A brunchette reception is scheduled for Aug. 18, 11:30 am – 2 pm, and all are welcome.

Larsen originated from Montana, and now calls Egg Harbor home. Enjoying the nature of Door County as a watercolorist, Larsen found her artistic interest in painting landscapes and flowers. To create her unique style, she also applies pen and ink to her paintings. “By letting the water do its work,” she states, “I often get surprises that add interest to the painting.”

Ritchey began her unique artistic edge early when she combined her psychic healing abilities into sketching her first fractal at age 12. “My gift is my art,” Ritchey explains. “I’ve been able to hear the frequencies of color, sense the dynamics of pattern and consciousness.” Ritchey is the current director for the DCAL gallery.

The DCAL Gallery is in the rear courtyard of the Top of the Hill Shops, located at Highway 42 and County F, Fish Creek. Hours for this season are 11 am – 5 pm daily and 11 am – 3 pm Sunday. The gallery is closed on Wednesday. For more information call 920.868.2288 or visit
