Time for Kites at Meadows Art Gallery

Soft sculpture kites by Lori Weir.

The next show for the Meadows Art Gallery is the Kite Show. It is a tradition to display kites every spring, as well as different artists and artwork. These kites collected by Scott Smith from all over the world bring color and a taste of spring after long Door County winters.

Also included in this show are artists that use color effectively in their artwork. Each artist has his or her personal expression and methods. Virginia Henz is a painter who uses mixed media. Her subjects vary from landscape to wildlife images. Her style can vary from realistic to representational. Kim Lyons does glass work that is then photographed. Photo images are used to produce metal prints, wall hangings, giclee prints, functional clothing, and small card images. Shirley Rosenquist also mixes media in her painting, and uses assemblage technique to bring dimension to her paintings.

Pat Smith experiments with color and texture. She uses color pencil but will mix media to develop her images. Florence Thoms’ work is meticulous in detail, and she is familiar with the subjects she paints. Lori Weir created soft sculpture of kites. She takes parts and segments of her painted work, prints these selected sections on canvas, and the canvas is sewn into kite shapes designed as wall hanging sculpture.

The Meadows Art Gallery is located in Scandia Village in Sister Bay. The show was installed on March 15 and the reception will be March 21 from 2 to 4 pm.
