Spring Colors at The Meadows March Exhibit

The latest exhibit to move into the Meadows Art Gallery is Colors to Spring. The show began its run on March 14 and will be up through April 9. A reception is scheduled for March 19, 2 – 4 pm. The public is welcome to come see the works and meet the artists.

All the artists featured have art directions that follow the exhibit’s title. Color use, textural play and technical skill are prominent in the works and will bring the viewer a welcome change from a Door County winter.

Madonna Siles will exhibit both paintings and pastels that sing with color. The textural construction of her work brings sculptural definition that only reinforces her subject matter.

Christy Ohman uses specific places and subject matter to jog our memories to a milder season in the county: Wilson’s Restaurant, barn, sunsets, lighthouse, wild turkeys, etc.

Jean Fritschka casts metal clay into unique forms of jewelry. Her designs give viewers a pause to consider the things we may overlook. Her design for “Not Today” is used to give support to cancer patients in recovery. She also has designs inspired by nature such as a grasshopper pendant and a Queen Anne’s lace pendant.

Nancy Akerly brings geometric integrity and color together to design box forms and for bookbinding. Her detail in construction with organic textures is flawless.

The Meadows Art Gallery is located on the top of the Sister Bay hill at Scandia Village. Turn onto Canterbury Lane from Highway 57 and head to the main entrance of Scandia. Keep to the right at the first hallway, and there’s the gallery. For more information call 920.854.4416 or 920.854.2317.
