Edgewood Orchard Galleries will host an Exhibit VII opening reception on Sept. 5, 4 – 7 pm.
The exhibit features the artwork of painters Susan Hale, Tom Nachreiner and Dale Olsen and jeweler Michelle Zjala Winter. The artists will speak about their work at 5 pm in the gallery courtyard. Nachreiner will hold a free painting demonstration on Sept. 6, 1 – 3 pm in the courtyard.
Hale’s paintings are a reflection of her personality, which is cheerful, bright and bubbly.
“I have always loved to draw and paint. Living, vacationing, and traveling in the Wisconsin countryside is a constant inspiration to me. It seems everywhere I look I see a painting.”
Driven by a passion for excellence, Nachreiner spent his earlier years as a nationally known figurative illustrator. More recent years have afforded him the privilege of a fine art rebirth, painting from his heart “en plein air” and giving year-round workshops. He was awarded “People’s Choice Award” while participating in the Door County Plein Air Festival.
Olsen’s oil paintings seek to give the viewer a sense of peace and majesty. As an architect, Olsen has been able to bring scale, proportion and draftsmanship to his work as an artist.
Winter’s jewelry creations are fabricated using traditional techniques and flat raw materials, such as sheet and wire, in sterling silver, gold and copper.
The exhibit will run through Sept. 23. Edgewood Orchard Galleries is located at 4140 Peninsula Players Road, midway between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. For more information, call 920.868.3579, or find them on Facebook.
