Edgewood Orchard Galleries’ Exhibit V Opens Labor Day Weekend

“Season’s Change” by Mai Wyn Schantz.

Edgewood Orchard Galleries will host an Exhibit V opening reception on Aug. 31, 4 – 7 pm. The exhibit features the artwork of painters Ginnie Cappaert, Susan Hale and Mai Wyn Schantz, glass artist David Lindsay and jeweler Olga Ganoudis. The artists will speak about their artwork at 5 pm in the gallery courtyard. Hale will hold a free painting demonstration on Sept. 1, 1 – 3 pm.

Cappaert concentrates on color, texture, line and shape when creating her minimalist landscape paintings. She uses a process of applying paint in many layers, then scraping and gouging to create a subtle, quiet effect to each of her oil paintings.

Hale’s paintings are a reflection of her personality, which is cheerful, bright and bubbly. “I have always loved to draw and paint. Living, vacationing, and traveling in the Wisconsin countryside is a constant inspiration to me. It seems everywhere I look I see a painting.”

Jewelry by Olga Ganoudis.

Schantz is well known for her ability to capture the color and serenity of a beautiful and idyllic outdoor place not on a framed canvas or wood panel, but on simple flat sheet of stainless steel.

California glass blower David Lindsay creates beautiful glass lamps and vases. He says, “Creating beauty out of fire is what being a glass blower is all about. Working with this hot, fiery liquid is exciting. I enjoy glass making’s fast-paced dance with fire.”

Ganoudis creates pieces inspired by richly patterned fabrics, textured metals, and any object which she can extract a texture. She gained attention from her jewelry collections designed for the ABC television hit series Lost as well as HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Edgewood Orchard Galleries is located at 4140 Peninsula Players Road, midway between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.3579, visit or find them on Facebook.
