Angela Lensch Gallery is thrilled to host the third annual jewelry trunk show for artist, Rachel Frye, designer and self-taught jeweler of CIVAL Jewelry Designs. The event will take place on Saturday, May 7th, from 12-5pm.
Rachel Frye’s original designs were born out of a love for found objects and a desire to give them new life. This led to the desire to create her own simple and easy to wear unique objects, and in 2013 CIVAL Jewelry Designs by Copper Shoppe was born.
Frye teamed up with, creative business savant, Danielle LaVigne. Now the two make a cohesive line of contemporary accessories in brass and leather with a focus on function, form and durability. Finding inspiration from many traditional aesthetics, including vintage textile patterns, geometric forms, and strong architectural lines.
Wisconsin natives, with small town roots, their connection to the Midwest landscape and way of life is evident in their timeless creations. Drawing on the Great Lakes in particular, they bring color and texture to their designs, that are easy to wear, perfect for any occasion and made to last.
Join us on Saturday, May 7th to enjoy the handmade and exquisitely crafted, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets by CIVAL Jewelry Designs. Angela Lensch Gallery is located at 7653 Highway 42 on the south end of Egg Harbor and is Open Daily, May – October from 10am – 5pm. For questions call 920-868-5088 or visit the website: angelalenschgallery.com

I am so excited to introduce to you the newest artist to the gallery, 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 snowy 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 gracefully sweeping arms, changing with the light as they cast complex geometric shadows over your garden. Made of copper and brass they can remain outdoors all year round. They are guaranteed for years of maintenance free motion; they will even continue to turn with a full load of snow on them!
Stop by to experience them in person or check out some of my videos on Facebook or Instagram.
Angela Lensch Gallery welcomes local artist Cheryl Bishop to her gallery on Saturday, October 17th from noon to 5pm. The outdoor display will feature 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.
Until recently the process of completing a Theorem Painting was time-consuming and tedious. The chosen design was traced, separated into stencil overlays and cut with an x-acto knife. This is the process Cheryl was taught when she studied at Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts, in Ludlow, Vermont. Theorem painting has enjoyed several periods of revival due to the members of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration. You will find it much more popular in the Eastern and Southern United States.
Cheryl has enjoyed over 20 years of stenciling fabric, walls and furniture throughout Door County. Join us to view her collection and to find out more about this historic art form.
Sculpted jewelry in gold and silver… more then just a jewelry item.
Using a specialized technique, I take precious metals and weave them together with gemstones and pearls, creating unique matrices of wearable art. Every piece is one-of-a-kind and hand made.
I grew up on a lovely farm just outside Decorah, Iowa. I earned my BFA in Sculpture and Furniture from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and have focused those skills into my current work, creating sculpted jewelry in gold and silver.
Currently I reside in beautiful Door County Wisconsin, in the cozy Village of Egg Harbor. In May of 2014 I opened up my very own gallery out of my turn of the century log home, located on the south end of town. 7653 State Highway 42, Egg Harbor WI 54209.
I will be posting new work as it leaves my hands, creating a running portfolio of Angela Lensch Jewelry.
In 2012 I took an amazing journey that took my jewelry in a new direction!
