Door County Art League - Events Coming!


We just received this notice of upcoming events of the Door County Art League:

According to Webster’s Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, “art” is defined as “skill acquired by experience, study, or observation; a branch of learning.” Organized in 1986, the Door County Art League’s mission is founded on those exact principles. In support of the Art League’s mission—to develop an active community interest in the field of the creative arts--the Door Community Auditorium’s Link Gallery presents “The Way We See It III,” an exhibit featuring nearly 70 original works of art. The exhibit opened on June 13 and continues through August 4.
Diverse in style, subject matter, media, and scale, the exhibiting artists represent a diversity of art forms within the context of the “visual arts.” DCAL artist members include potters, printmakers, wood carvers, and painters in all mediums.
In the 22 years since DCAL was founded, its membership has grown from several emerging artists to a directory of more than 300. A Door County residency is not required for DCAL membership. “Anyone can belong to this organization,” emphasized past president Jeanne Whildin, “and you don’t have to live in Door County. The importance of our organization is that you want to support the visual arts in Door County.”
This spring the Door County Art League has premiered its own gallery located in the Top of The Hill Shops in Fish Creek. Seasonal summer hours are Thursday through Monday, 10 – 4 pm. DCAL member Jane Delcarson has been named manager of the gallery which features the artwork of its members.
Artist demonstrations will be open to the public during the weekends. Watercolorists Barb Kenyon, Thursday, June 19, and Penny Pfister, July 21 will present throughout the day. Trattoria Dal Santo continues to serve as the “Showcase Gallery” and features DCAL artists on a rotating basis throughout the year. Charlene’s Gallery Ten in Ellison Bay is DCAL’s designated winter gallery.
The public is invited to attend an open house at the Door Community Auditorium on Wednesday, June 18, at 6 - 8 pm. “The Way We See It III” exhibitors will be present to discuss their work. Door County Art League members will provide information on their organization and membership particulars. Refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend this event.
The Link Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 10 – 3 pm; Friday; show days, 11 – 3 pm; and during all DCA performances. For additional information contact the DCA box office at 920-868-2728. The Auditorium is located in Fish Creek on Highway 42, north of the town center.
Membership fees, donations, and sponsorships support the Door County Art League, a non-profit organization. For membership information contact DCAL president at
920-823-2532 or PO Box 405, Fish Creek, WI, 54212. The DCAL website www.doorcountyartleague.org provides complete details on all exhibits, demonstrations, and gallery information.
The Door County Art League is hosting a series of artist demonstrations and exhibits July 10 -13, August 8 - 10, and October 10 - 12. Entitled “Art in the Barn,” the special events will be hosted by Carolyn Kimbell at 8820 Hwy. 57, Baileys Harbor. The public is invited to attend these special events daily from 10 – 5 pm.
