This month’s show at the Meadows Art Gallery is titled Scandia Friends and Family. It reflects the Scandia Retirement Community’s interest, support and involvement in the art community of Door County. Featured are members of this community, as well as relatives and friends of the Scandia Facility.
The definition of what makes or is fine art is based on individual tastes and experience. Tom Seagard, Meadows gallery curator, says the Meadows features forms of art not normally shown.
“It is exciting to share the residents’ experience and expertise in art areas not normally shown, as well as the traditional visual art normally seen. All ages and interests are shown. The artists are all in some way a part of the Scandia community: residents, family, employees, grandkids or volunteers. Many kinds of directions are exhibited, but there is sure to be challenges and interesting experiences for the viewer.”
Media represented includes hardanger, needlepoint, cross stitch, tapestry stitching, rug hooking, clothing made with recycled fabric, designed knitting clothing concepts, and garments used as canvas with painted designs. Sculptural concepts play a large part in the construction of many of these pieces. There will also be many types and media used in 2-D visual arts.
This show is now installed and will be up through March 31. The reception is March 4, 2-4 pm. The artists will attend and discuss their work. Refreshments will be served. The Meadows Gallery is located in the Scandia Village at the top of Sister Bay hill. Go through the main entrance of Scandia Village and turn right at the main hallway.
