Beginning Sept. 17, the Miller Art Museum will feature the work of 40 Wisconsin artists who are members of the Wisconsin Watercolor Society (WWS). The exhibition debuts in the main gallery of the museum inside the Door County Library, 107 S. 4th Ave., in downtown Sturgeon Bay. The public is invited to meet and greet exhibiting artists at the opening reception on Sept. 17, 5 – 6:30 pm; the event is free and open to the general public. Light refreshments will be served.
The exhibit, comprised of 56 paintings, depicts a wide variety of styles of watercolor and includes artists from all corners of the state from Lac du Flambeau to Lake Geneva, and from Wausau to Racine.
“The artist community of Door County has a long history of working in watercolor,” said Deborah Rosenthal, curator of exhibits. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit such excellent works varying widely in style from the abstract to highly realistic.”
Two artists in the exhibition will be familiar to many in Door County; they are artists Hermke Timm of Sturgeon Bay and Connie Glowacki from Fish Creek and Janesville.
A free artist’s talk and demonstration with WWS member Joye Moon, open to the museum’s volunteer membership and the general public, is scheduled for Oct. 13 at 10:30 am.
The exhibit continues through Nov. 1 at 5 pm. For more information, call 920.746.0707 or visit the museum’s Facebook page at facebook.com/millerartmuseum.
