Three Artists Spotlight at Meadows Art Gallery

Circle Rider by Tom Seagard

The Meadows Art Gallery is featuring a three-week show starting in January.

The artists included are all in different career stages with different years spent in the making of art. In working together they each supply one another with their own perspective in being an artist.

Samantha Vanderhoof is relatively new in the painting discipline.

She brings excitement of discovery to her work. Her fresh approach becomes almost spontaneous with an innocent freedom of color and Representationalism. The viewer is picked up and carried by her energy and freshness in her work.

Ernest Beutel’s work has gradually taken style and form that is uniquely his own. He is a member of the Abstracted Realism tribe. His experiences as he works, rely on representation but he uses color and non-objective technique as a challenge to interest the viewer.

Tom Seagard is a portrait painter. But instead of just painting figurative portraits, he paints portraits of people, wildlife, places and things that speak to him of history. Mileage is his interest and what stories things and people can tell him. Having made art for close to a half century, the sharing and stealing of interesting techniques, methods and directions renews his work. And that is what Artist tribes do for one another.

The Meadows Art Gallery is located in the Scandia Village in Sister Bay. This show will start on Jan. 30 and run to Feb. 14. The reception will be on Feb. 7, from 2 to 4 pm. For information call 920.854.4416 or 920.854.2317.
