The Barnsite Retreat and Events Center in Kewaunee invite the Door and Kewaunee county communities to an evening of art and fall festivities on Oct. 26, from 3 – 8 pm. The evening will include hors d’oeuvres, cider press, chili cook-off, bonfire, and original works of art by Pam Clausen, George Ouimette, and Keith Carter.
Creating lively oil paintings, Clausen brings to the show a pictorial representation of emotion and beauty found in the human figure, still life, and Wisconsin’s natural landscape.
Ouimette’s sculptures are one-of-a-kind forms that bridge the gap between drawings and vessels. His use of found branches are the foundation of creative ceramic forms that represent unique aspects of the artist’s natural surroundings. He has taught a variety of forms of art at Southern Door High School for the past 17 years. Recently, Ouimette’s work was presented in the annual Fine Furnishings Show in Milwaukee.
Carter’s recent works combine traditional and experimental vessel forms that come alive with natural textures. His work brings new life and new meaning to worn, vintage objects with a lively and animated style. Carter has been working as artist-in-residence, studio manager, and art instructor at Clay On Steele in Algoma for the last two years.
Barnsite Retreat and Events Center is located at 109 Duvall Street, at the top of the hill on Highway 42, in Kewaunee. For more information, or if you would like to set up a private or group tour of the show, contact Carter at [email protected], 816.550.2022, or find Barnsite Retreat on Facebook.
