I will be showing new work at the following galleries:
Cottage Row Gallery, Fish Creek, WI
I show my paintings, prints, and notecards year round in this lovely restored barn located behind Orchard Country Winery south of Fish Creek on Highway 42. There is a wonderful collection of paintings, prints, photographs and cards by many other talented artists, as well. Bridget’s watercolor originals are available at cottagerowgallerydc.com/bridget-austin.html
Call 920-868-2626 or www.cottagerowgallerydc.com. The gallery is open daily in summer and fall and a varied schedule during the winter and early spring.
Moondeer & Friends Gallery, Boulder Junction, WI
I am pleased to be included in this colorful gallery full of art of all types! This gallery is certainly worth a visit if you are in the Northwoods, and it is conveniently located in downtown Boulder Junction.
Call 715-385-2082 or check www.moondeergallery.com for information on hours and gallery artists.
Wisconsin Arts Framing and Gallery, Green Bay, WI
It’s nice to have work displayed close to home! Wisconsin Arts offers a wide selection of quality artwork plus framing services. They are located at 1780 Allouez Avenue in Bellevue, between Bellevue and Lime Kiln Road. You can contact them at 920-465-6611 or www.wisconsinartsgallery.com. Closed Mondays.
2017 Scheduled Workshops
These are the workshops scheduled for 2017. For The Clearing and the Peninsula School of Art, contact them either online or by phone to be on a mailing list for catalogs or for information on the sign-up schedule, which is usually in February. Even if there is a wait list, you have a chance of getting in! Signing up early helps!
In general, the classes are geared to painters with at least some experience with watercolor…beginner to advanced. While I do have a suggested supply list you are welcome to use your favorite paints, paper and brushes. In most classes I like to cover fresh brushwork, negative painting to layer for depth and richness, personal colors and painted value studies for composition. I hope to see you and paint with you in 2017!
Questions? lease contact me (920-336-7511 or email@example.com)
A supply list is available if you wonder what I prefer to use.
