Edgewood Orchard Galleries celebrate the opening of its 49th season with a show benefiting Peninsula State Park. An opening day celebration takes place May 6, 10 am – 5 pm. The public is invited to visit the gallery and sculpture garden, enjoy complimentary refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, and view newly completed original artwork by more than 150 exhibiting artists.
This group show highlights the diverse natural beauty of Peninsula State Park, located a few miles north of the gallery. The gallery will donate a portion of all sales during this show to Peninsula State Park for the rebuilding and expansion of the park’s White Cedar Nature Center. This inspiring group show will be displayed through June 13.
A book signing also will be held at the gallery May 6, 10 am – 3 pm. Sue Steckart Jarosh, mother of gallery co-owner J.R. Jarosh, published her first book, Lighthouse Mouse. This is the first in a planned series of children’s books. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Peninsula State Park’s Eagle Bluff Lighthouse.
