Fine Line Designs Gallery’s final exhibit of the 2019 season will open Aug. 8 with an artist reception, 4-7 pm. Exhibit III will feature fiber artist Sue Benner and oil painters Kathie Wheeler and Kristy Goggio. Wheeler will also offer an artist demonstration Aug. 9, 11 am – 2 pm.
Benner’s background in molecular biology figures into her work, which has a sense of structure and organization that lends clarity to her complex dyed and painted textiles.
Wheeler – a plein air painter who lives on a farm in southwest Wisconsin – paints reflections of her life in the state’s Driftless Region in a way that only someone who has lived and worked the land can.
Women and birds have been part of Goggio’s work for more than 25 years, and now bees, dragonflies and butterflies are becoming more prominent because of her increased concern for our environment.Fine Line Designs Gallery, 10376 Hwy 42 in north Ephraim, will display Exhibit III through Sept. 13.
