Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery puts the “art” in party and invites the community to their 11th Annual Summer Gala on July 9, 3 – 7 pm. Come to the gallery to hobnob with the artists and fellow art lovers. Gail McCoy, Erin Nolan, Jean Corby and Mary White are the featured artists.
McCoy’s enchanting paper collage crane paintings are a must-see. McCoy begins her work with pages from National Geographic magazines, transforming them into magical landscapes. The ink washes into many fantastic color schemes, providing the anchor for her serene creations.
Nolan bases her exceptional work on the “haiku moments” of life using mokuhanga and drypoint printmaking techniques. Her imagery is inspired by nature and her favorite places in Door County. Mokuhanga is a traditional Japanese style of printmaking using hand-carved wooden blocks and handmade Japanese paper.
Corby uses embroidery as her medium to create beautiful fiber art pieces and photography. Vibrant colors and intricate patterns in her work celebrate her love of flowers, trees and all things in nature.
Starry Door County skies, fields of flowers, and the waters of Lake Michigan populate White’s newest textured landscape paintings. Canvases large and small are filled with inspirations from natural beauty.
There will be wine from von Stiehl Winery and heavy appetizers from MacReady’s Artisan Bread Company.
Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery is now open every day from 10-5 PM. To visit go 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or 5 minutes south of Egg Harbor on Scenic Hwy 42 then east on Plum Bottom Road (1 mile) to 4999 Plum Bottom Rd. Just look for the yellow flags!
