Mary White, Plum Bottom’s resident painter, is debuting her newest textured acrylic canvases of idyllic Door County days and nights. White adds a gel compound to her acrylic that makes the scenes jump off the canvas and adds a dreamlike component to every piece.
Mike Judy is a Door County-based artist who works in pastels. His vibrantly colored scenes often hint at the Door County landscape, featuring boats, florals, and glimpses of the peninsula’s bays and lakes. Often compared to Matisse, Mike Judy creates beautiful worlds that one can get lost in. See Judy’s never before seen collection at the show.
Carol Pflughoeft works with fractal photography to represent the complex interactions of life’s various aspects. Pflughoeft uses a time-consuming process to utilize multiple layers of images, fractals, and colors to create unique imagery.
Mark Pflughoeft uses acrylic paint, etching, and collage to create three-dimensional looking paintings. Pflughoeft focuses on balance and contrast, making his paintings connect to everyone on an emotional level.
Sara Vanderkleed uses mixed media to produce a contemporary representation of emotions and objects. Vanderkleed works in many different mediums, including paper collage, acrylic, and watercolor.
Valerie Weberpal, a contemporary folk artist, uses acrylic to create fantasy and dreamlike scenes. View Weberpal’s newest collection of painting and collectible fiber dolls.
