Sue Donohoo of Soo Hoo Artwear of Baileys Harbor will be front and center at the Door County Wearable Art Show with her handcrafted jackets, tunics, shawls and scarves. She uses a spontaneous approach to deconstruct and reconstruct an eclectic array of fibers.

New to the show, but not new to Door County is master silversmith Coleen Bins, owner and resident jeweler of Chief Oshkosh Native American Arts in Egg Harbor. She will debut her latest collection of sterling silver jewelry featuring the elegant Luna Moth, Live with a Good Heart, and Skydome Collections. As a contemporary/traditional Oneida artist as well, Bins will also display her handmade cornhusk doll necklaces, red willow dream catchers and a number of intricate beadwork pieces.

GF.WP.HK.TXLocal jewelry artist Angela Lensch, also from Egg Harbor, will showcase her 2016 Summer Collection of hand-woven jewelry in gold and silver. “I have been swimming in gemstones and pearls of aquas, pink and burgundy roses and the golden sunshine of citrines and lemon quartz,” says Lensch.

Elizabeth Moriarty will feature her handmade collection HERBOLOGIE and grace the stage with organic scents and herbal remedies.

Leather artist Ilze Heider will showcase her latest collection of leather purses, clutches, and the like. “Leather has been my chosen medium for the past 40 years. Finding an ever-expanding source of materials and techniques, I combine color, texture and feel of materials to create a unique and functional piece of wearable art,” says Heider.

Also in the show are the following artists: Dawn Patel’s Brilliant Stranger Clothing, Deb Rades’ Maggie E Handbags and Accessories, Ann Louse Fashions, Moraine Meadow Gourd Purses, and Recycled Warmth & West Side Cellar wearables.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call Lensch at 920.868.5088 or visit
