New Art Work at the Gallery at Door Peninsula Winery! just received this press release from the Door Peninsula Winery   

Rolf Olson exhibition to get “Up Close and Personal”

The newest exhibition to come to The Gallery at Door Peninsula Winery will feature the works of award-winning poet and photographer Rolf Olson. The new show will be titled “Door County: Up Close and Personal”.
Olson has been a craftsman in wood and metal for 25 years working in Door County as a boat builder and joiner, designing and building doors, cabinets, furniture and functional objects. Olson said he has always “enjoyed clean, simple and elegant design” and his photographs “reflect that aesthetic.”

“I am drawn to the resonant factor of a landscape, (which) elicits a question or an emotional response from

the viewer,” Olson said. “Hopefully there will be more content than just the object itself.”

Olson’s exhibition will feature selected photographs composed and framed without digital manipulation and minimal cropping. Most of the images are captured with an older Canon Powershot S3 IS and featured in the exhibit will be photographs of Door County “up close” and truly “personal”.
The work from the Egg Harbor resident has been featured in the Peninsula Pulse, the UU Gallery in Ephraim and Glas in Sturgeon Bay. Next spring, a show of his photographs and poetry corresponding with paintings of Margaret Lockwood will be featured at Woodwalk Gallery.

The exhibition opened on Nov. 1 and will be on display during the entire off-season.

The Gallery at Door Peninsula Winery is part of the complex within Door Peninsula Winery in Carlsville, which includes Door County Distillery and Bistro 42. Our seasonal shows ensures each visit will be unique offering works from local Door County artist, primarily working with two-dimensional pieces.

The Gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended evening hours when the Bistro 42 is serving dinner.
