The Washington Island Art Association kicks off the New Year in the UU Gallery with a two month long show exhibit. This second annual WIAA show at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County features artists who are members of the Association. The group formed in the early 1960’s when artists gathered at Martha Stelter’s Holiday Inn on Washington Island to paint and make art. The WIAA has continued to grow in popularity and today sponsors numerous classes, open workshops, and art shows. Washington Island’s pristine land and water vistas offer endless subjects to inspire artists.
This year the show offers works by 13 artists in watercolor, pastel, oil, mixed media, acrylic, and pen and ink. The works draw on a variety of subject matter from realistic lighthouses, water, and landscapes, to abstract birds.
The WIAA show will hang in the Gallery from January 3 through February 29, 2016.
