Throughout May, Ladybug Glass Studio & Gallery will feature a retrospective of Karen Newquist’s paintings titled Wisconsin Landscapes. Newquist is a longtime artist who has delved into many types of media, including painting and ceramics.
The paintings in this exhibit are primarily of local barns – with farm fields captured during the fall and winter interspersed – and even with snow and gray skies, the paintings have a warm, comfortable feeling.
The gallery will host an opening reception during the monthly First Friday in Algoma event May 6, 5-8 pm, with Newquist in attendance to discuss her work.
Ladybug Glass (ladybugstudiogallery.com), 219 Steele St. in Algoma, is primarily a stained- and fused-glass and photography gallery that hosts guest artists spring through fall and features work by local artists.
