Contemporary Art in Door County

Contemporary Art in Door County, some rambling thoughts!

It's been here a long time, just in bits and pieces!  Over the years many fantastic artists made Door County there home, many of whom are contemporary artists such as Wence and Sandra Martinez, Jeremy Popelka and Stephanie Trenchard, Rebecca Carlton and Tony Staroska, Margaret Lockwood and so, so many more!  Although I feel the Midwest tends to be a more traditional/representational art region I think if you really look you can find some 'pockets' of more contemporary works.

This Saturday, September 14, 3-8 pm we are hosting our 2nd Annual "Contemporary Art Tour" here in Door County!  Four contemporary galleries will be hosting evening receptions and are open to the public to celebrate the contemporary arts in the heart of Door County!  Martinez Studios has been here for 25 years and features the weavings and paintings of Wence and Sandra, they are incredible!!!  Peter and Skye at Bazyli Studio features stunning jewelry and contemporary clothing of their own designs as well as other artists, another special must see studio/gallery that celebrates 5 years at this location!  Dan and Diane at Idea Gallery are also new to the scene and represent some pretty amazing contemporary artists as well as Dan's own mixed media photographs.  A great gallery in the country with an intriguing selection of art!  Definitely have to go! And then there's me, Cappaert Contemporary Gallery!  Coming on the art scene five years ago features my oil and cold wax paintings as well as a select group of 30 artists who push some edges in there own work every year in whatever medium they choose, sculpture, jewelry, ceramic, mixed media, glass.  We specialize in oil and cold wax painting and encaustic painting and sculpture!  Come visit - and now that I have my little studio in the gardens cleaned up you can take a peak at my work space too!

Can you tell I am so excited about our art scene here in Door County!?  I hope you can join us for these gatherings on Saturday and enjoy all that Door County has to offer in the music, theater and visual arts scene AND of course nature!  Life is an adventure!
