Exhibit of local artist, Lynn Gilchrist, to open Saturday at the Gallery at Door Peninsula Winery.

Carlsville, WI - The Gallery at Door Peninsula Winery is pleased to present the work of Lynn Gilchrist in a solo exhibit on the two floors of its central rotunda from Friday April 24- August 14.  The Opening Reception will be Sunday, April 26, 4:30- 7:00 with Door Peninsula Wines and Bistro 42 appetizers featured.

Lynn Gilchrist's work is represented by Woodwalk Gallery, Egg Harbor which has coordinated this exhibit for the Gallery at Door Peninsula Winery.  The exhibit is open 9am-5pm daily in April and 9am-9pm throughout the summer.  The Winery is located in Carlsville, between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor on Highway 42.

Gilchrist lives and works in Sturgeon Bay.  She received her BA in Studio Art/ Art History from Oberlin College in Ohio with study at Temple University in Rome and at California Institute of the Arts.  She has won numerous awards, including Best of Show and Purchase Awards at shows in Sacramento, CA, Lake Forest, IL, and Appleton, Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, Sheboygan and Sturgeon Bay, WI.

Her solo and invitational shows include: Neville Public Museum, Wisconsin Arts Gallery, Miller Art Museum and West Bend Gallery of Fine Arts (all WI), Lee Hall Gallery/N.M.U. (MI), and Deer Path Art Gallery (IL).

Lynn Gilchrist is in love with Door County- its beauty, its people, its hidden wonders, its essence.... and it shows, in some way, in almost every painting she does .
"I go to nature for contemplation, recreation, enrichment, and wonder. Being able to run outdoors and to paint outdoors in Door County is a great joy, with Lake Michigan, the fields and woods all around. The pursuits intertwine: running can open one's eyes and be a form of meditation and doing art can feel like a physical race in itself. While plain air painting the artist may be staring but is no longer day-dreaming. One needs to paint fast and in the process makes quick choices that are usually more true to one's soul."

The exhibit features work from every decade of Gilchrist's expansive career and interests which means that in the midst of landscapes and nature studies, you'll find dogs watching tv, various self-portraits, girl-friends and just bright, whimsical paintings (including pastels) meant to be fun and engaging.  She quotes Henry Miller's vow to himself to do her work "calmly, joyously, and recklessly."
