Peninsula School of Art Exhibits “Unruffled Views”

Ceramic sculpture by Stephanie Evans.

From a 12-foot high tent to diminutive sculpture, the dress takes form as a symbol for feminine roles in the works of eight artists in the exhibition, “Unruffled Views: the Dress as Symbol” on display from April 15 to July 9 at the Peninsula School of Art.

“Unruffled Views” will feature the work of both 2- and 3-D artists, from throughout the United States and Canada, who have embraced the dress as the primary inspiration for their art.

The featured artists will include sculptor John Petrey of Tennessee, painter Kelly Reemtsen of California, ‘dress tent’ creators Adrienne Pao and Robin Lasser of California, photographer Sonya Naumann of Iowa, and pastel artist Cathy Daley of Ontario, Canada. Featured artists from the Midwest will include mix-media artist Molly Carter of Illinois, sculptor Teresa Lind of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and ceramic sculptor Stephanie Evans of Door County.

Although “Unruffled Views: the Dress as Symbol” will open to the public on Friday, April 15, the reception for the exhibition will be held as the summer gallery season “kick-off” celebration on Saturday, May 28 from 5 – 7 pm.

Peninsula School of Art is located at 3900 County Road F in Fish Creek. The exhibition and related events are free and open to the public. For more information about this event and other Peninsula School of Art workshops, exhibitions, and community programs, call 920.868.3455 or visit
