The Lobby Gallery Winter Exhibit at the Door County Community Foundation features works by Dan Cross, Arlene Stanger and Steven Stanger.
Cross earned a bachelor of arts in art education, with emphases on painting, ceramics and photography, at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. He lives in West Jacksonport and owns Idea Gallery/Studio, where he showcases contemporary art. His work has been shown nationally and has won awards of excellence in several media. Regionally, his works are in the permanent collections of the John Michael Kohler Art Center, the Brown County Neville Public Museum, UW-Green Bay and the Lawton Foundation.
Arlene Stanger of Baileys Harbor is an award-winning fine-art photographer whose interest in photography began years ago in Monterey, Cali., where she had access to a dark room and drew inspiration from master photographers Ansel Adams and Brett Weston, who were living and working in the area at the time.
Steven Stanger is essentially a self-taught photographer. His interest in the medium began when he was studying Russian at the U.S. Army Defense Language Institute in Monterey, Cali. Stanger captured his abstractions by using multiple exposures, intentional camera movement and a vortoscope (kaleidoscope); focusing on reflected objects; and using a closer-than-normal point of view relative to the subject matter.
The Community Foundation is located at 222 N. Third Ave. in Sturgeon Bay.
