Over the weekend we hosted Art's Happening #5...due to the weather most of the art was inside, James Koch had his sculptures set up outside. Here's one picture but I lost many of the photos I took, fortunately Larry Seiler, one of the seven featured artists, posted several on his blog: http://larryseiler.blogspot.com/
Friday evening it was so packed with people there was hardly room...there was an amazing array of wonderful foods to snack on: Marbled Tea Eggs, Truffled Popcorn (thanks, Rob!), Bison Summer sausage (from Stephen Wysocki, also a featured artist), platters overflowing with Antipasto and so much more which Connie had arranged in a beautiful flow (along with rearranging the rest of the house to accommodate all the art seamlessly and meticulously
Saturday was much more relaxed. the open house hours were from 10AM - 4PM, with a steady stream of people coming from near and as far as Milwaukee, Appleton and Rhinelander!
Larry, Dale Keller (featured Potter), and Tim provided the soundscape with etherial improvisational weavings during the day...later during the afterparty they were joined by Dan Deschinney on guitar and banjo for some riproaring blues/bluegrass jamming!
This event was the birth of our artist guild: (in alphabetical order) Elizabeth Couillard, Connie Friesen, Margaret Gerhart, Dale Keller, James Koch, Larry Seiler, Collette Suminski, Stephen Wysocki...with much more to come...
