Ellison Bay Arts Celebrates Local Creators with Spring Art Crawl, May 22-23

Ellison Bay Arts hosts its Spring Art Crawl on May 22-23, 10 am – 5 pm. The crawl features the rich tradition of arts and crafts in Ellison Bay and the many artists, studios and creative spaces in the area.

Jeanne and David Aurelius of Clay Bay Pottery create hand thrown pottery and tiles. Jeanne’s functional work reflects her devotion and delight in nature. David’s work is more abstract creating hand built vases, serving pieces and tiles.

Turtle Ridge Gallery/Boutique features mixed media paintings, encaustics and etchings by Mary Ellen Sisulak. The award-winning boutique offers unique handmade leather bags and art to wear, complimented by artisan jewelry and designer clothing. Art Camps are offered. 

Kick Ash Coffee is a great place to kick back, enjoy the view and house roasted coffee, granola and other treats from its gluten free kitchen. 

Gills Rock Stoneware offers original designs on hand thrown pots which are both functional and decorative. Beautiful table linens and woodenware are artfully displayed with the pottery. The Clearing is an adult folk school that offers classes in the arts and fine crafts, humanities and natural sciences in a beautiful wooded setting on the water. Ellison Bay Pottery potters John Dietrich and Diane McNeil create distinctive, contemporary, functional and decorative one of a kind pottery inspired by the natural beauty of Door County. 

Rob Williams Studio/Gallery Rob’s colorful watercolor and oil landscapes are paired with Shirley’s photographs and gardens.
