The community is invited to attend a reception on Saturday, June 3rd from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., at the Door County Community Foundation. The reception celebrates the Lobby Gallery Winter Exhibition featuring works by Margaret (Mac) Schueppert. The Community Foundation is located at 342 Louisiana Street in Sturgeon Bay, across the street from the Post Office.
Mac is known for her vibrant use of color. “The local color of my subject is only a suggestion as I am always looking for ways to push and expand color,” says Mac. “I paint mainly landscapes but recently I have enjoyed painting cloudscapes and reflective water. I am drawn to dramatic lighting on my subject; strong contrast of of bright light and dark shadows. It’s what inspires me to paint.”
The Community Foundation’s reception is being coordinated with the “Wildlife Biennial XVIII” exhibition at the Miller Art Museum that same evening. Wisconsin’s finest carvers, sculptors, and painters explore the natural world. Guests are encouraged to visit Sturgeon Bay and drop by both the Miller Art Museum and the Community Foundation Lobby Gallery opening receptions.
Refreshments will be served at the Door County Community Foundation by Morag Hornsby and her team at Serves You Right Catering.
Each quarter, different Door County artists will be invited to exhibit their work. The Gallery is normally open to the public during the Community Foundation’s regular hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
