Twenty-two local artists are gearing up for the 12th annual Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl, Nov. 16–18. The doors of 20 home or gallery studios will be open from 10 am to 4 pm for visitors to see the artists’ work where it’s produced.
The artwork on display ranges from pastels, printmaking and paintings to ceramics, jewelry and music production. Some artists will perform demonstrations of their working methods during the weekend.
Artists in the 2018 Sturgeon Bay Art Crawl include Nancy Aten and Dan Collins, Liz Butler (Yellow Door Pottery), Hans Christian (Studio 333), Jeanne Demers, Michael Doerr, Pam Flanders, Lynn Gilchrist, Karen Hertz-Sumnicht, Margaret Lockwood (Margaret Lockwood Gallery), Sandra and Wence Martinez (Martinez Studio), Pat Olson, Kim Pedler (Peninsula Jeweler), Jeremy Popelka and Stephanie Trenchard (Popelka Trenchard Glass), Kristi Roenning, Mac Schueppert, Barbara Shakal, Linda Sheard (Lily Bay Pottery), Deb Stroh-Larson, and Archelle “Buttons” Wolst.
Visitors are invited to enter the chance to win the Art Crawl door prize, a unique and original bread-cheese board by a member artist, woodworker Michael Doerr. Slips may be filled out at each location.
The Art Crawl also invites the public to a Kick-Off Party after the first day, 5–7 pm at Margaret Lockwood Gallery. Refreshments will be served and visitors will have a chance to meet and greet the artists.
