Renowned Door County artist Charles L. Peterson will be featured at Cottage Row Gallery June 18 – July 2. The special exhibit will open with a meet-the-artist reception on June 18, 10 am – 1 pm.
Peterson lives and paints in Door County, where he moved in 1973 following a 20-year career as a professor of art at Marietta College. Long respected by the serious art community for his masterful work with watercolor, his “Memories Collection” brought him unprecedented national popularity in signed, limited edition reproductions. He is also widely known for his maritime painting, having repeatedly won prizes at Mystic Seaport Maritime Museum’s International Competitions, where he is listed among their Modern Maritime Masters.
The show features a collection of new original paintings with a variety of themes and sizes. In addition to his more typical watercolors, he has added a collection of pencil drawings and several interesting pieces using a combination of ink and gouache on a toned board. Peterson’s books Of Time and Place and Reflections will also be available as well as his notecards and a large selection of his signed and numbered limited edition prints.
The gallery is located at 9197 Hwy. 42, ½ mile south of Fish Creek at Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery & Market. The gallery is open daily 10 am – 5 pm and Sundays 10 am – 4 pm. For more information, call 920.868.2626 or visit cottagerowgallerydc.com.
