2010 Door County Master Artist Emmett Johns.

At the opening of the Door County Art League’s 24th Annual Juried Exhibit, Emmett Johns will be presented the 2010 Door County Master Artist award. The Master’s Reception and opening of the Juried Exhibit will be held on Sunday, September 12, from 1 – 3 pm at the Link Gallery in Fish Creek. The public is invited, hors d’oeuvres will be served, and Steve Lavell will entertain guests on the classical guitar.

Awards of Excellence, Honorable Mentions, and the People’s Choice award will also be presented. The exhibit will be on display until Tuesday, October 12.

“I am tremendously honored to be chosen the 2010 Door County Master Artist,” said Johns. “I don’t really consider myself a ‘master,’ so I am extremely humbled to be included with those who preceded me.”

Johns has three bodies of work: abstract/contemporary, portrait/figurative, and landscapes. During his illustrious career, he has had numerous art exhibits throughout the country and published three books. His work will be shown at Mr. Helsinki’s in Fish Creek in October and also in the upcoming Miller Art Museum “Past and Present Group Invitational.”

Johns’ studio and gallery are on Highway 42 in Fish Creek; he also works in a studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Link Gallery is located in the Door Community Auditorium, 3926 Highway 42, Fish Creek. For more information call 920.559.7530 or visit
