Our artist series features local artists who find inspiration in nature. We have reimagined our annual art fair by extending it over a series of five consecutive Sundays, August 23-September 20, to ensure the health and safety of all. Join us each Sunday in the Great Hall to meet the different artists and learn about their process of making art. The artists will have their art available for purchase. Visitors are welcome to hike before or after attending the show, during the time slot in which they are registered.
Here are the two artists featured on Sunday, August 23:
Barbara Friedman has been inspired by nature since childhood. She uses oils and watercolor to capture the beauty of the natural world in many forms, from flowers in her garden to the birds that come to her feeders. In her studio, she paints images of flowers, fruit, and natural objects as a studio still life, and also conveys the visions of hers and neighborhood gardens that have the most beautiful blooms by painting them en plein air. Barbara recently began painting birds on live wood from her north woods cabin.
For Suzanne Stone, nature is the driving force for all she creates. She’s a photographer with a passion for capturing birds, nature, and landscapes. Two of her favorite places to photograph birds are Schlitz Audubon and Horicon Marsh, as well as in her neighborhood. She also does studio work, including still life photography of flowers and the creation of scenes with objects gathered from nature. She makes framed and/or matted enlargements as well as photo cards, and has experimented with photo transfers onto wood and ceramic tile.
For the health and safety of all, attendees must wear a mask when inside the Great Hall. Please do not attend if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus. See our latest COVID-19 updates here.
