NEW TO THE GALLERY FOR 2020:
– DOOR COUNTY ARTIST –
ACRYLIC ON CANVAS
Jeanne learned an appreciation for the painting process at her Grandmother’s knee, watching her paint in her studio with the scent of turpentine and cedar trees in the air. Her life has taken her on many disciplinary roads and she has at different times focused on music, art and nursing.
She began painting professionally in 1996 and sought out the art community in Door County. Refreshing and expanding her skills by taking classes at Peninsula Art School in watercolor, figure drawing and acrylic painting.
In 2001 Jeanne called Door County her home and from 2008 – 2019 was the resident artist at Lost Moth Gallery (Egg Harbor) and currently her large paintings are featured at Off the Wheel Pottery (Egg Harbor).
COPPER WIND SCULPTURES
Angela Lensch Gallery is honored to be featuring the impressive outdoor copper wind sculptures by renowned, regional artist, Dave Riemer. You may recognize his mesmerizing copper wind sculptures from Egg Harbor’s ‘Harbor View Park’ as well as many private collections and galleries around the Midwest. The flowering gardens of Angela Lensch Gallery now feature over a dozen different styles and sizes of Dave’s amazing kinetic sculptures. From polished copper to green patina and “Tornados” to “Starflares”
Using the slightest breeze these sculptures move with graceful sweeping arms, changing with the light as they cast complex geometric shadows over your garden. Guaranteed for years of maintenance free motion while remaining outdoors all year round. They will even continue to turn with a full load of snow on them!
Watching their motion has been described to be ‘as relaxing as watching a lazy river’.
Every sculpture is shaped and assembled by hand, using the highest quality bearings, copper, brass and stainless steel. Built to last for decades without maintenance, they will provide a graceful, peaceful motion to any garden.
NOTE: 2020 marks Dave’s retirement from wind sculpture production. Resident Artist’s Angela Lensch and Tony Bessen have been honored to study with Dave this winter and filled with joy to keep many of his beautiful creations available while adding some of our own designs to the mix.
