George Burr Paints Road to Northport

Local artist George Burr has now painted the “Road To Northport – Winter” to show people what that famous road looks like in the winter. It’s a view returning from the ferry dock. Burr says the snow-covered trees in winter made it a more interesting view. The traditional view (near Deer Trail Lane) is just a bunch of sticks in winter. It will compliment Burr’s bestselling fall painting of the road. It’s the road at the tip of the thumb, also known as the most photographed stretch of asphalt in the state of Wisconsin. Most people see it in the summer and the parade of cars is continuous during the peak of fall color season.

The painting is now on display at the George Burr Gallery. Besides the original, Burr offers limited edition prints in several sizes both framed and unframed. He has also made cards, coasters and refrigerator magnets. Prints on metal in various sizes are now available as well.

George works with soft pastels on sanded papers to create Door County themed landscapes. He is known for his intense use of color and serene peaceful sometimes almost photorealistic landscapes.

The George Burr Gallery is located at 10325 State Highway 42 on the north side of Ephraim. The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10-4 until May1 when it opens daily 10 – 5. For more information, call 920.854.7877 or visit
