DCAL Hosts “Off the Wall” Art Show and Artists of the Week

“Bathing Beauties” by Pat Olson.

The Door County Art League (DCAL) presents “Off the Wall” Art Show at the Sister Bay Village Hall on July 28 and 29. Oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, pastels and photography will be displayed.

According to Pat Olson, show coordinator, “This is a casual and fun art event. Instead of the formal gallery approach, DCAL members will display their artwork on tabletop and floor easels. Some of the artists will also demonstrate their craft and art techniques during the show.”

Admission is free and the public is invited to browse, meet the artists and enjoy refreshments. Hours are 10 am – 5 pm on July 28, and 10 am – 3 pm on July 29.
