The current exhibit at Linden Gallery in Ellison Bay is Familiar Faces from Far Away, an oil painting exhibit by artist Susan Ploughe. Ploughe will demonstrate her technique July 7, 2-4 pm. The public is invited to watch her work on a painting, ask questions and learn how an artist works behind the scenes to create a complete painting.
Traveling abroad has been a large inspiration for Ploughe’s work. She said, “When you’re in another country, particularly one with a very different culture from your own, everything feels strange at first. It can be hard to connect, to find an entry point. I quickly learned that people are pretty much the same wherever I go. I can begin to pick out the calm observer, the life of the party, the cautious, the reckless, the big-hearted…and they start to feel familiar.”
In addition to gaining the prestigious Signature Status in Oil Painters of America, this year Ploughe earned Signature Status in the American Impressionist Society.
Linden Gallery will display her new work July 7 – Aug. 8. Linden Gallery is located at Highway 42 and Mink River Road in Ellison Bay. Hours are 10 am – 5 pm daily. For more information call 920.854.2487.
