One of Sturgeon Bay’s most historic buildings has been brought back to life and is now the new home of Margaret Lockwood Gallery. The grand opening reception is scheduled for May 29, 3 – 5 pm. There will be beverages and appetizers by Nistebox, music by Tarl Knight and a performance by Jaco the Magician. Featured are the ethereal Door County landscape paintings of Margaret Lockwood, the large-scale metal sculptures of Dan Bresnahan, the woven gold and silver jewelry of Angela Lensch, and the often whimsical ceramics of Renee’ Schwaller.
This may also be the only time to tour the entire renovated project, including the residence.
Lockwood’s paintings are the true main attraction with their subtle interpretation of the life and magic of Door County’s beauty, skies, woods, waters and bluffs. Her work has been said “to have the power to make the viewer weep,” “to contain the essence of Door County,” and “to help people appreciate what it is that makes Door County so special.”
Margaret Lockwood Gallery is located at the intersection of Michigan Street and 2nd Ave. in the old, white PBI warehouse building. There is parking diagonally across the intersection, on First and Second Streets, and in the parking garage on First Ave. The main doors face 2nd Ave. For more information, call 920.493.3635, email [email protected], or visit margaretlockwoodgallery.com.
