Gehm Demonstrates Delicate Art Door County Art League’s Monthly Meeting

“Snowed In,” floral art by Mary Gehm

Mary Gehm will demonstrate how she creates artistic arrangements from petals, twigs and leaves for her unique note cards and collage art at the Door County Art League’s September 26 meeting. The meeting will take place at 7 pm at the Gibraltar Fire Station on County F. All who attend will have the opportunity to create their own floral composition with natural materials provided by Gehm.

Master Gardener Gehm paints with plants. She collects blooms, petals, leaves, seeds, twigs; then presses and/or dries them to create a collage library from which she builds greeting cards, wedding remembrances and framed collage art.

In creating her collage art, Gehm uses natural materials and special papers suitable for her paintings. Sometimes the materials dictate the outcome; at other times, she relies on her intimate knowledge of color, shape, translucency and other characteristics of the materials to give her an idea for a design.

Gehm has been a featured artist at Charlene’s Gallery Ten and also shared her talents with others at Door County Master Gardener events. Her cards are available at the Miller Art Museum and Door County Botanicals.

Membership in the Door County Art League is available to all persons interested in promoting and enjoying the creative arts in Door County.
