Gallery of Children's Art at Door Community Auditorium!


Oct 22, 2015

Peninsula School of Art (PenArt) is proud to display artwork created by youths attending their 2015 Summer Studios for Young Artists workshops, as well as the School’s Family Art Days outreach program, in the upcoming Art of the Family exhibition, on view starting October 23 at The Link Children’s Art Gallery at Door Community Auditorium.

Artwork from PenArt’s summer youth workshops includes pieces created in the fine art media of painting & drawing, ceramics (hand building and on the potter’s wheel), animation, sculpture, and printmaking.

Contributions to Art of the Family from September’s Family Art Day follow the theme of “#ArtofTheFamily,” with family members working together to draw a “selfie” of their family enjoying a special memory from within a paper iPhone-shaped frame. In a world where the “selfie” self-portrait is seen consistently on Facebook and Instagram newsfeeds, PenArt stepped away from a focus on the individual to concentrate on what truly makes Door County unique – the families that support a strong arts-centered community.

After discussing their ideas, families drew a “#familie” that expressed what makes their bond unique. Those visiting the exhibition are encouraged to create and add their own #familie to the Link Gallery walls. By doing so, they join the featured artists of Art of the Family in a celebration of the beauty that is created when families collaborate their creativity and express their feelings through art, and then share it with the Door County community.

Since PenArt’s founding summer in 1965, the commitment to providing meaningful and fun curriculum for young artists remains strong. The summer youth arts program has grown from only two children’s workshops to today’s nearly 40 classes for children ages 3.5 to 17 years old, including those with family-centered activities.

The Link Gallery of Children’s Art is Door County’s first exhibit space dedicated to the showing of artwork that portrays the world through the eyes of children.  Exhibits can be viewed from noon-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and from noon to show time on show nights.  The Link Gallery of Children’s Art is located at 3926 Hwy 42 in Fish Creek, inside the Door Community Auditorium.

Ted Pollman Scholarship Awarded to Three Area Students

Carlsville, WI - Recipients of the 2015 Ted Pollman Scholarship were announced this week. Casey Rosenthal who attends Bellin College, Mathew VanBramer who attends UW Madison, and Ethan Ray who attends UW Parkside were chosen out of many deserving candidates. All three will received $1500 towards schooling and are current employees of Pollman family businesses.

The Ted Pollman Scholarship was created by the Pollman family, owners of Door Peninsula Winery and other Door County businesses, to honor the memory of their youngest son who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2000. Despite being diagnosed with severe learning disabilities at the age of five, Ted exceeded through hard work and persistence. The intent of the scholarship is to award graduating seniors or those currently pursuing higher education who have overcome financial, scholastic and/or physical challenges in their life.

The scholarship is in its fourteenth year, beginning in Biloxi, Mississippi at Ted's alma mater, St. John's High School. During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the high school was destroyed and the decision was made to move the scholarship to Door County due to Door Peninsula Winery's location.
Applicants are asked about their educational aspirations, community involvement, extracurricular involvement, and the challenges they have faced and overcome. Each application is read by the Pollman family and deserving students are chosen based on their answers.

"It was difficult for us to make a decision," said Bob Pollman. "We received so many deserving applications this year that we couldn't decide on just one. We are pleased we are able to help these young people and keep the memory of our son going."

There are 3 additional Ted Pollman Scholarships awarded each year to area graduating high school seniors going on to higher education.

The Pollman family has owned Door Peninsula Winery since 1984 and also owns Door County Distillery and Bistro 42, attached to the winery; Juniper's Gin Joint, The Barrel Room and The Cherry Hut in Fish Creek; and Shipwrecked Brew Pub and Fat Louie's Olive Oil Company in Egg Harbor.
