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. Browse our website for details on upcoming shows, past artists, or sign up HERE to be emailed with upcoming shows.

 

 

October Artists of the Month     

 


 

 






 

 

Yahara Bay Distillers will be featuring artist Tom Griffith of Verona, WI
in our July showcase. Tom paints 17th Century style oils on wood.
A self-taught artist, Tom has never shown his art in a public venue, UNTIL NOW!  He paints faces that he makes up in his own imagination using
 sometimes a hundred layers of paint to create an extremely lifelike
appearance. Each piece resembles the style of the old Dutch and Italian
masters, using highlighted areas of the face for a haunting affect.

Unusually, Tom only uses 4 colors to achieve these very lifelike portraits.
Heavy under paint combined with multiple layers of colored glazes create
the imposing faces he creates. 

Join us on July 10th to meet this newly discovered talent and gaze upon this must see one of a kind exhibit at Yahara Bay!
