Vernissage, benefit show at Edgewood Orchard Galleries
Necklace by Michelle Zjala Winter.
Edgewood Orchard Galleries will hold its first reception of the season on May 28, from 4 to 7 p.m., with refreshments served. Featured artists Leslie Wu, Michelle Zjala Winter and Thomas Skupniewitz will be featured at 5 p.m. in the courtyard.
The Courtyard Gallery will feature the work of oil painter Wu, who will travel from her home near Seattle to attend the reception. Its ethereal landscapes and nostalgic reflections have a serene and soothing effect.
Discover Winter’s one-of-a-kind jewelry in its display case on the main level of the Gallery Barn. Starting from flat sheets of gold, silver or copper, she bends, saws and welds these materials with semi-precious stones.
Skupniewitz’s contemporary and often colorful pottery pieces and outdoor sculptures will be featured in the Main Gallery and Sculpture Garden. Incorporating hand-carved details on his geometric steel pots, trays and sculptures, he has created a collection of new pieces for this show.
A collective benefit show, A walk in the woods, also continues through June 5, with a portion of all of its sales going to Write On, Door County, and Door County Land Trust. The benefit show features works by many of the more than 150 artists represented at the Edgewood Orchard Galleries (edgewoodorchard.com), 4140 Peninsula Players Road in Fish Creek.
