Our Next Show- Ken DeWaard: The Plein Air Tradition, March 7 - April 4, 2015

We are pleased to announce our first gallery show of 2015, Ken DeWaard: The Plain Air Tradition. Ken will be joined by special exhibitors Tysen DeWaard (age 13) and Westen DeWaard (age 10), both following in their father's footsteps!

This exhibit showcases some of Ken's recent plein air paintings including work from a recent trip to Italy. You may know that Ken's recent Italian work was the subject of an article published in Plein Air Magazine (Dec 2014-Jan 2015 issue).

As a special one time event, we will be offering a fine selection of Wisconsin plein air paintings spanning the last 10 years at special reduced prices in anticipation of Ken's upcoming studio relocation.
