The Gallery at Yahara Bay

In keeping with our opinion that craft distilling is just as much an art as a science, we host an on-site gallery to showcase the work of some of Wisconsin's most talented artists. Visit our website for details on upcoming shows, past artists, or sign up here to be emailed with upcoming shows.

Winter's Delight Show
February 6 - March 26, 2010

Join us as we celebrate three creative and colorful artists during these dreary winter months.

 

Brent George has been making bronze statues professionally for almost fifteen years. After leaving art school he apprenticed with a small fine art foundry in Illinois where he perfected his craft working on sculptures of all scales from small figurines to life size monuments. Brent’s sculpture is a mix of imaginative representational figures and animals mixed with a sense of humor. His work can currently be seen at Fine Line Designs in Door County and locally at Mother Fool’s coffee House.

 
 

Lorrie Hurckes started making dolls when the people closest to her began having children.  The dolls, hand made from recycled clothes and fabric, represent feelings of hope, belonging, and love; and were gifts to those who had been a constant source of support and inspiration. Lorrie soon found that her dolls brought a smile to faces both young and old, friends and strangers.  Her work was last seen at the Madison Hours holiday fair.

 
 
 

Nicole Klinge is an eco artist that creates her art from "trash", materials that are destined for the landfill.  She creates colorful mandalas that are intended to bring the viewer back to themeselves and honor the universe for the abundance it provides.  Her art is her poetic activism to bring attention to the problems created by our disposable society.  Her series of the 7 Chakras was  shown at Madison's first Earth Dance celebration in fall of 2009 at Commonwealth's gallery.  Her work can be seen online at www.nicoleklinge.com
