Miller Art Museum Explores Abstraction in New Exhibit

The Miller Art Museum in downtown Sturgeon Bay is opening a group invitational exhibit, titled Abstract Thoughts, of work by 40 regional artists. The exhibition opens to the public on Sept. 15 with a free public reception from 5 – 6:30 pm. The exhibit remains on view through Nov. 6.

“Abstraction is really an interesting and sometimes polarizing concept,” said Curator of Exhibitions and Collections Elizabeth Shoshany Anderson. “Some people love abstraction or abstracted visuals, while some people prefer representational art. This exhibition, while featuring art that explores the concept of abstraction, still includes works with recognizable elements,” Shoshany Anderson continues, “so the exhibition will have something for everyone, and provide a thoughtful look at the practice.”

Exhibiting artists include: James Barany, Janet Ballweg, Trenton Baylor, Ernest Beutel, Donna Brown, Martha Coaty, Dennis M. Connolly, Dan Cross, John Dietrich, Jim Evans, Jenna Freimuth, Marty Gerber, Nina Ghanbarzadeh, Farida Hughes, Bill Greider, Thomas Jordan, Karen Kunc, Cody LaCrosse, Margaret Lockwood, Sandra Martinez, Wence Martinez, Marjorie Mau, Diane McNeil, Lee Mothes, George Ouimette, Gail D. Panske, Cheryl Stidwell Parker, Monica Ramirez, Kristi Roenning, Nancy Sargent, Olivia Schreiner, Arlene Stanger, Steven W. Stanger, Tony Staroska, Stephanie Trenchard, Hermke Timm, Rina Yoon, Gary Weidner, Mindy Sue Wittock, and John Zehren.

The museum is located within the Door County Library at 107 S. 4th Avenue, Sturgeon Bay. Hours are 10 am – 8 pm Monday and 10 am – 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. For more information visit
