Lily Bay Art Crawl Returns July 16-18

The artisans of Lily Bay will host an art crawl July 16-18, 10 am – 5 pm. Enjoy socializing and treats along the way. 

Among the participants, artist Karen Hertz-Sumnicht tells stories of the past, home and family through abstract cold-wax and oil paintings. Potter Linda Sheard is excited to share new work that features English Grolleg porcelain clay, and she’s chosen to use cobalt blues and sage greens on a white-porcelain backdrop. 

Watercolorist Kerry Vavra has an artist’s eye for detail, whether capturing botanicals, barns or nautical themes. Jim Hoyer has once again created some unusual furniture pieces from his favorite raw materials: driftwood, cedar and wild mulberry. 

Mike Marcheske continues to delight shoppers with creations from his self-grown willow supply: baskets, chairs, trellises and other functional art items. Jane Faella creates jewelry in silver and stone that is inspired by Door County’s beauty.

Nancy Prange’s love of photography has evolved over years of effort in Colorado and Door County. Her goal is to celebrate and enhance images from everyday life. Three jewelry artists will also join Prange. Jean Bass uses various stitches and techniques to sew together seed beads to create necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Dona Anderson enjoys incorporating natural gemstones and found materials in jewelry, mosaics and painting. And Joanne Mast produces jewelry incorporating vintage pieces with sapphires, rubies, emeralds and other precious gemstones. 

A portion of sales from the art crawl will go to local nonprofits: Habitat for Humanity, Neighbor to Neighbor and HELP of Door County. Visit or call 920.412.4872 to find out more details.
