Fine Line Designs Gallery will open for the 2019 season on Friday, May 3.
In addition to new works by tenured Fine Line artists, the gallery is pleased to welcome several new faces to the gallery. These include two ceramic artists from the Midwest, Rachel Vitko from Minneapolis, Minnesota and Natalya Sots from Schaumburg, Illinois; two painters, Sarah Gayle Carter from Lexington, Virginia and Kathie Odom from Knoxville, Tennessee, who some might know as a participant in the Door County Plein Air Festival. In addition, two new glass artists, Mariel Bass from St. Petersburg, Florida and Wesley J. Hunting from Princeton, Wisconsin, will be part of the gallery. Hunting will also be featured in Fine Line’s first exhibit and reception of the season.
“We’re coming off our best season ever last year, and we’re excited to continue the momentum in 2019,” says Shari Gransee, owner of Fine Line Designs. “Opening weekend is one of the best times of the season with everything fresh and new on display. We’re looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces and excited to showcase the many talented artisans and craftsmen we proudly represent at the gallery.”
After opening weekend, the next event Fine Line is preparing for is the first exhibit and reception of the 2019 season, which will feature glass artist Hunting as well as painters Liz Maltman and Shelby Keefe and fiber artist Martha Fieber. Exhibit I will begin on Friday, May 24, with the artist reception for the exhibit happening on Saturday, May 25 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.
