School of Fish
It's official. Lakeshore Elementary has been
papier mached. I just finished up my residency at the Fond du Lac, WI
school, and we had a blast. I am always amazed at the creativity of the
youngsters. Every student in the school made a papier mache' fish.
That's like, 389 if you're counting at home. 'Wish I had a bunch
of photos to share with you fine website viewers, but I was so busy with
the art making, that I didn't get much of a chance to do any
photography. I have just a few examples of work in progress if you click
on the above photo. BIG thank you to art teacher Katie Matthews, and PTO
coordinator extraordinaire Kari Koenigs. Also thanks to the moms who
came in and assisted, and all the fantastic staff and faculty at
Lakeshore Elementary. -SW
Thank You Grava
Sadly, Grava Gallery is closing its doors.
But happily for owner Mike and his partner Tim, they will be free to
move on to new adventures in their lives. The Milwaukee, WI gallery was
located in the Third Ward neighborhood, and specialized in framing. I
had the pleasure of being represented by them over the past year, and I
want to thank them for doing such a fantastic job selling my art. I will
miss dealing with them, because they are such nice guys. Best of luck,
you two! -SW
Coming Back to Door
Hello vacationers! I'm sure some of you will be heading up to Door
County, WI this summer. And why not? The scenic lakeshore and
picturesque towns are just a couple of reasons to visit the peninsula.
Now there is yet another reason: Steve Wirtz art. Yes, ladies and
gentlemen, it has been quite some time since you were able to view
Steve's zany papier mache' sculptures in Door County. But we at Cartuna
are excited to tell you that this summer Wirtz will be part of a new art
venue in Egg Harbor. More info in the weeks to come.
Hey, Whatcha Doin'
