Edgewood Orchard Galleries Begin 45th Season

“Uplifted” by Shelby Keefe.

Edgewood Orchard Galleries will host a reception for Exhibit I on May 25, 4 – 7 pm. Exhibit I includes painters Judi Ekholm, Shelby Keefe, and George Shipperley; jeweler Marcia McDonough; and glass artist Lyla Nelson. The featured artists will briefly speak about their work at 5 pm, and wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The main level of the gallery will include a selection of colorful floral and landscape oil paintings by Ekholm and a collection of oil pastels by Shipperley. Nelson recently completed a number of new pieces in her signature style of blown and sandblasted glass, which will also be displayed on the main level.

McDonough sent a new selection of her interchangeable jewelry pieces, and will be available for appointments between 11 am – 3 pm on May 24 – 28. McDonough can incorporate something you already own into one of her versatile designs, call 920.868.3579 to make an appointment.

The courtyard gallery will be filled with Keefe’s paintings. In April, Keefe was selected as the nationwide Grand Prize winner of PleinAir Magazine’s annual Plein Air Salon show.

On May 27, Ekholm will give a painting demonstration from 1 – 3 pm in the courtyard. She will answer audience questions while creating a painting.

Exhibit I will be displayed until June 12. Edgewood Orchard Galleries is located at 4140 Peninsula Players Road, midway between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.3579, email [email protected], or visit
