Martinez Studio is Most Northern Point of Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl

Martinez Studio will host guest spinner/weaver Virginia Thomas of Washington Island for the Sturgeon Bay Holiday Art Crawl, Nov. 21 & 22, 10 am – 3 pm.

Located in Jacksonport on Highway 57, Wence and Sandra’s weaving and painting studio has welcomed many guest artists over the years (including Thomas in 2007) and the return of her work is something to celebrate.

Thomas has been a full-time Washington Islander for 18 years and her love of spinning and weaving shines in the variety and quality of her works.

“I have a personal collection of Virginia’s statement shawls and Wisconsin gives me plenty of opportunities to show them off. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the crawl. Literally every time I wear one, I am complimented,” Sandra said.

Weather and ferry dependent, Thomas will be on hand for the crawl. Wence and Sandra will have fresh weavings from their apprentice line; the Village Collection along with barware for gifting and stories from the East Coast Philadelphia Art Museum Craft Show; Wence’s 6’x6’ version of Sandra’s latest design, “Flora;” and the opportunity to see the “Codice Nuttal” weaving before it is released into the permanent collection of the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago next year.

Michael Doerr Woodworking, a staple at Martinez Studio, will open his private studio during the crawl. His studio is located south of Sturgeon Bay and representative pieces will remain at Martinez Studio as well.

Martinez Studio hours are 11 am – 4 pm daily, and closed Wednesdays. For more information call 920.823.2154.
