A new gallery has just opened in Sturgeon Bay. Margaret Lockwood plans to open the doors to her new gallery on April 29 at 10 am. The grand opening reception will be May 29 at 3 pm.
The official gallery hours will be 10 am – 5 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and 10 am – 7 pm Thursday.
Margaret and Allin renovated one of Sturgeon Bay’s oldest buildings at a beautiful location on the corner of 2nd and Michigan, overlooking the Steel Bridge and the bay. Built in the late 1870s, before the renovation, the building contained a vault because there was no bank in Sturgeon Bay and a large cistern in the attic because there was no central water supply system. It has been home to a warehouse, a printer, a cleaner and a tech center before it sat empty for about a dozen years. They worked with architect Virge Temme and Ahnapee Construction to create a timeless design incorporating contemporary materials, a unifying grid system, and the building’s original doublearched, towering windows.
As Lockwood describes, “We transitioned from our country setting to an ‘in town’ life with less maintenance and more opportunity to enjoy just being in Door County. Already with others we are dreaming a whole new set of dreams. One of which includes an idea of a Steel Bridge Creative District.”
Previously, Margaret and Allin owned Woodwalk Gallery in Egg Harbor, which they sold last May to Andrew Seefeldt and Jillaine Burton.
The gallery also showcases the outdoor sculptures of Dan Bresnahan, woven metal jewelry from Angela Lensch, and ceramics from Renee Schwaller.
Margaret Lockwood Gallery is located at 7 South 2nd Ave, at the Michigan St. intersection in Sturgeon Bay. For more information, visit margaretlockwoodgallery.com or call 920.493.3635.
