The word longevity has such a lovely ring to it. In the closing days of the recent Miller Art Museum exhibit, “Masters…DC Artists Who Have Been Working for 50+ Years,” the word is ever present. To find a path in life that is fulfilling, and to pursue it with passion, discipline, creativity, and generosity, is not only a gift to the person who discovers it but to all who are greatly enriched by their lifelong journey.
Such is the case with Jack Anderson, Abe Cohn, Malin Ekman, Jim Ingwersen, Emmett Johns, Flora Langlois, Charles L. Peterson, Ruth Philipon, Ellen Sprogo-Toplemann, Karsten Toplemann, Rosemary Utzinger, and Sylvia Youell. Their outstanding workmanship and talent is a result of a lifetime of making art. They have given Door County an anchor of excellence and sense of enduring quality in bringing their talent here. They are the standard bearers. They know the value of inspired hard work, tenacity, perseverance, self-discipline, and keeping the learning journey ongoing.
The Door County Masters: Group Invitational runs through Sept. 10 at Miller Art Museum, located at 107 S. 4th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. Hours are 10 am – 8 pm Monday and 10 am – 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. For more information call 920.746.0707 or e-mail [email protected].
