“Yard: The Art of Craig Blietz” on View at Gallery 224

An exhibition of recent large-scale paintings by Sister Bay artist Craig Blietz has opened at Gallery 224 in Port Washington, Wis. The exhibition features nine paintings, some as large as 8-foot by 9-foot. “Yard: The Art of Craig Blietz” will be displayed through June 23.

A book has been produced in conjunction with the exhibit of the same name and is available for purchase through Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Fish Creek and the Miller Art Museum in Sturgeon Bay.

This is the fourth and final venue that the exhibition will have traveled to during a span of 10 months. Blietz is best known for his rural- and agrarian-inspired imagery and his formalist approach to painting. His imagery conveys a surreal interpretation of the “new pastoral” scene.

Blietz is represented locally by Edgewood Orchard Galleries, located at 4140 Peninsula Players Road, between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. For more information visit
