Of "The Forest Speaks," Julia Pagenkopf said the inspiration came from a meadow in Door County on a late afternoon day in the spring. The light seemed to perfectly center on the meadow behind the trees, which seemed to be whispering to each other.
OUR FALL, 2018 EXHIBIT: "Unwilling Adjustment
was at the Gallery of Wisconsin Art,
303 Water St., West Bend, Wisconsin:
from Saturday, November 3-Friday through December 28.
Susan Klabak said: "The subject of the painting "Snowy Lane" is the driveway leading to my home. It depicts one of those beautiful winter days after a heavy snowfall and is symbolic of the way I like to see the world, that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
Thank you, Gallery of Wisconsin Art, for hosting our Fall exhibit. And a big thank-you to Dani Marino Graf, for acting as judge - not an easy job!
