Turning Earth

Breanne Sallee • St Paul, Minnesota

Breanne has spent the past three years attending two energetic boys and a handful of chickens, while throwing pottery in her backyard studio. Originally from Spencer, her pottery pieces both reflect nature and serve as unique containers to display natural beauty. She primarily creates pieces that are functional – mainly vases and dinnerware – and is now exploring ceramics as decorative sculpture.

Opening Reception: Friday, October 7, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Marsh Impressions

Deanna Mabeus • Marshfield, Wisconsin

Upon moving to Marshfield from California six years ago, Deanna fell in love with Wisconsin. Her series of oil and acrylic paintings depict the landscape, wildlife and flora of the marsh. The reflection of the sky in the water, the sway of grasses in the breeze, the shadows created by the sun’s rays through the trees, or the sound of geese in the distance captivate and compel her to somehow capture that moment in time, conveying a visual journey of quiet solitude and natural beauty.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Nature in Abundance

Sandra K Lange • Medford, Wisconsin

When Sandra semi-retired in 2020, she set down the bottle, picked up a paintbrush and hasn’t looked back! Painting has not only enriched her life, but also saved it! As a life-long tree hugger, it was only fitting that nature landscapes would become her specialty. Acrylics are her comfort zone, but she also dabbles in watercolors, abstracts and other media.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 6, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Feathers and Flowers

Roxie Wetterau • Spencer, Wisconsin

An avid gardener and bird watcher, this Spencer photographer seeks to draw attention to an individual blossom or bud, rather than the larger view. By capturing the shape, texture and color at various angles and perspectives, the artist creates an image through which the viewer can witness details that would otherwise be overlooked. Roxie’s exhibit highlights the intricacy of flowers and the majesty of avian life, exploring the striking aesthetics of the natural wonders found in her own backyard.

Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
