The second season for Woodwalk owners Jillaine Burton Seefeldt and Andrew Seefeldt has been in planning since about halfway through the first season. After getting to know their artists, the property, all the ins and outs of the barn as well as weddings and music, they felt it was time to raise the bar.
“We knew that to move forward successfully, we would want to enhance our very talented group and expand to offer more of a selection to our customers,” said Jillaine. “We have people who come year after year and that kind of loyalty is so valuable, so in return we need to make sure that what they see continues to remain fresh.”
With more than 70 artists this year, there are many new things to see. There are more 2D artists working with cold wax, oils, acrylics, pastels and fascinating mixed media. Look for some exceptional nationally known quilters who will hang alongside a very talented local quilt artist, Laurie Moegenburg in the Quilting Savvy Pop-Up Show. You will also find unique metals, pottery, jewelry artists, printers, photographers and woodworkers. “Our returning artists have really outdone themselves, bringing in the highest caliber of art in so many different mediums, I can’t imagine leaving without something,” said Jillaine.
The schedule has also expanded to include five primary exhibits, up from three in 2016. May starts with a jewelry exhibit opening May 11 and October also features a new exhibit. In addition, Woodwalk has added some shorter more casual “pop-up” shows. For more information, visit woodwalkgallery.com or find Woodwalk’s Facebook page.
