Fine Line Designs Gallery Announces Second Exhibit of 2009 Season

“Roadside Beauties” by Alberta Marana.

Fine Line Designs Gallery is pleased to announce the artists featured in the second gallery exhibit of the 2009 season. Exhibit II will run Friday, June 12 though Tuesday, July 7 with the opening reception for the show scheduled for Saturday, June 13 from 4 – 8 pm.

Fabric and embroidery artist Martha Fieber, furniture builder (and Martha’s husband) Leonard Fieber, pastel artist Alberta Marana, and oil painter Kathie Wheeler are the featured artists in Fine Line’s second exhibit.

“Frog Hunt” by Kathie Wheeler.

Both Martha and Leonard Fieber will be on hand for an artist’s demonstration on Sunday, June 14 from 11am – 2 pm. Martha Fieber calls her artwork “landscape in thread,” and focuses on texture, technique, pattern, and detail to express her interest in our human connection to the natural world, while Leonard Fieber has been working with wood for over 40 years. His most recent body of work, Beaver Chew Furniture, is made from sticks left behind after beavers have eaten the leaves and bark.

Alberta Marana, a pastel artist, says she finds solace in nature from the chaos of the world – and is attracted to the vibrant colors of the wildflowers and grasses in the summer, the dynamic red and golds of the autumn, and the wonderfully moody blues of the evening.

“Glass Top Coffee Table” by Leonard Fieber.

Oil painter Kathie Wheeler uses her canvas to reflect the experiences of her life on a small farm in Southern Wisconsin – and was the winner of the Quick Paint at the 2008 Door County Plein Air Festival.

Fine Line Designs Gallery, located at the north end of Ephraim at 10376 Highway 42, is open daily 10 am – 6 pm, Sundays 10 am – 5 pm. For more information call 920.854.4343 or visit
