A new publication from the Ephraim Historical Foundation (EHF) highlights a portion of the organization’s extensive Door County art collection. Spanning from the mid-1800s to today, the art collection includes more than 100 pieces, ranging from paintings to sculpture to jewelry.
This publication is a collaborative work with art historian Virginia Jones Maher and author Paul Burton. Fifty pieces are included in the book, titled Picturing the Past: The Ephraim Historical Foundation’s Art Collection. Landscapes, seascapes, portraits, rural scenes and landmarks are featured, as well as biographical information about the artists and color photographs of each piece. The book is currently available at ephraim.org/shop and will be sold in the EHF Museums beginning June 15. All proceeds benefit the EHF’s mission of preserving and sharing Ephraim’s history.
This book inspired the 2018 Anderson Barn Museum exhibit, also titled Picturing the Past: The Ephraim Historical Foundation’s Art Collection. The artwork included in the publication is on display in the Anderson Barn Museum beginning June 15 at 10 am. There is no charge to see the exhibit, but donations are appreciated.
