– 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.

– THEOREM PAINTINGS
Local artist Cheryl Bishop creates timeless “Theorem Paintings” which include fruit, flowers and holiday themes. Theorem painting is an Early American decorative technique dating back to England as early as 1800. The style came into fashion between 1810-1840 when it became part of the curriculum of finishing schools for proper young ladies. Although silk and watercolor paper was often used, cotton tea-stained cotton velveteen was the surface of choice. Oil pigments were applied by wrapping a small piece of cotton velveteen or wool around the artist’s finger.
