Contemporary art in Door County intrigues collectors and art lovers alike. Three Door County studios are hosting the second annual Artist Demo Day on Oct. 1, 1 – 3 pm.
Visitors can see the artists and talk about their process while working in their studios. Meandering between the studios and watching the demos of the artists is always a popular and educational event. Participating artists are Emmett Johns, Tony Staroska and Rebecca Carlton from Juddville Clay Contemporary Gallery and Ginnie Cappaert from Cappaert Contemporary Gallery.
Johns describes himself first and foremost as an action painter in the same mold as the abstract expressionists. He will demonstrate how he paints oversize landscapes using acrylic paints. It’s a painting process that relies on spontaneous decisions and big brush action. Stop by and see him in action at 9100 Highway 42, Fish Creek.
Juddville Contemporary Clay Studio Gallery is located in the blue schoolhouse between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. They create unique, distinctive contemporary clay work including decorative pottery, large abstract/realistic sculptures and tiles. During the demo Staroska will throw pots and both artists will be available to discuss their work. The gallery is located at 8496 Highway 42, Fish Creek.
Cappaert Contemporary Gallery is the working studio/gallery of artist Ginnie Cappaert. She paints large, minimalist, abstract landscape paintings using oil and mixed media. Her studio is located at 7901 State Highway 42, Egg Harbor. She will work on some paintings while answering questions about her art and process.
