"It will never rain roses.  When we want to have more roses, we must plant more roses." - George Eliot
On this rainy day, such a juicy good thought!  In life it seems, we will get what we put into it.  In the studio we will accomplish what we set out to only if we step foot, show up and WORK!  It seems the good art will happen, along with the bad, as we 'practice' our art - just like life.
We must never forget the beauty around us, we must persevere in all that we do.  This whole week seemed to be a major disappointment in the studio.  Every layer on every painting just didn't seem to be right.  Sometimes, as all seasoned artists know, this is how we have the 'breakthroughs'; this is how the good things happen in the studio.  The layers next week will probably work out wonderful!  One must never give up!
So, let the rains come...the sun shall shine tomorrow!  and it shall be a better day in the studio!

WOMEN ARTIST OWNED GALLERY'S OF EGG HARBOR

Thursday, August 6, 2015  4-8 pm

PROGRESSIVE ART CRAWL!

I am so excited to be a part of the first Progressive Art Crawl here in Egg Harbor.  This is what Angela Lensch has to say about our upcoming fun evening!

"Egg Harbor is becoming the art destination of Door County!  With the growing public art initiatives popping up all over town and the wonderful collection of art  galleries within the community, Egg Harbor is the place for FINE ART.  Between the booming, "Edgewood Orchard Gallery" to the North and the rustic "Woodwalk Gallery" to the south, there are four unique and artist owned galleries in between! 
Join us for an evening of honoring women, art and food.  Each gallery will be featuring a new collection of work and hosting a 'course' of food for the Progressive Art Crawl.  In the plans are appetizers, main courses and a fountain of chocolate and fruit for dipping as desert!  (and of course great art, too!)"

Featured artist/galleries are:
OFF THE WHEEL POTTERY - Renee Schwaller (potter)
LOST MOTH GALLERY - Jeanne Kuhns (painter/musician)
CAPPAERT CONTEMPORARY GALLERY - Ginnie Cappaert (painter)
ANGELA LENSCH GALLERY - Angela Lensch (jeweler/sculptor)
                                           CAPPAERT CONTEMPORARY GALLERY
