Pastel Artist Featured in Door County’s UU Gallery

Gail Ledbetter of Chicago will exhibit pastels of the less-traveled Door County countryside in August. An opening reception will take place August 7 from 11 am – 2 pm.

A frequent visitor to Door County, Ledbetter enjoys painting plein air. Her inspiration starts on site to be finished later in her studio. Ledbetter taught high school art and after-school elementary art in varied mediums and also taught digital photography.

“Light and Shadow – in pastel” is the result of Ledbetter’s “observations and work in the field along with her love for color, light and shadow which is so often found in the landscapes of this area.”

Her art works have been in a variety of juried exhibits and can be found in private collections. In September she is scheduled to exhibit in Aurora, Illinois

The UU Gallery is located at 10341 Highway 42 in Ephraim. The gallery is open 1 – 3 pm on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays, and 11 am – 12:20 pm on Sundays. For more information visit
