George Burr resurrected his high school art studies when he visited Door County at the age of 51. Picking up his pastels he discovered a talent within that had quietly matured over the years. Concentrating on pastel landscapes George’s brilliant use of color and texture captures and extends the vistas that surround us. The soft pastel pigment portrays nature with a soft beauty unique to the medium.
George works with archival soft pastels including Shmincke, Rembrandt, NuPastels, and Faber-Castell Polychromos. He works exclusively on acid free sanded papers such as Wallis and Sennelier La Carte Board. Often using his fingers to blend he combines a realistic approach with expressive colors to create breathtaking landscapes. Images vary in size from 5 X 7 to 24 X 36.
George now operates the George Burr Gallery at 10325 State Highway 42 in Ephraim. The gallery features his original pastels and affordable giclee prints of his work. The gallery also has works of other artists including acrylics, pottery, jewelry and outdoor art.
The gallery is open 10-5 daily from May to October and in winter on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-4. Anytime by appointment. 920-854-7877 His work can be seen online at www.GeorgeBurr.com and on Facebook at George Burr Gallery, Inc.

Description: "I was in an upbeat mood, loving the beauty and the quiet of the day. I chose a swinging Frank Sinatra as background music and it was perfect because I knew all the words and could sing along with Frank. As I faced the canvas, knife in hand, I did not have any thoughts about what I might be painting (although on some level, I knew it would be abstract and have a lot of red and black in it). I took my large knives, set them on the little roller cart, and began the process of picking up paint and making marks on the canvas, occassionally using a paper towel to push or thin out the paint in spots. Once in awhile, I'd use my latex-gloved fingers to make additional marks. I felt elated and very free.
The next day, returning to my canvas, I was in a completely different place. My left brain was in overdrive. My right brain was asleep at the switch...but, I decided to paint anyway (this time with Rod Stewart as my accompanyist). I was trying to figure out how to "continue," what shapes would "fit," and what new colors might "match." I felt frustrated, then anxious and ready to quit -- but I didn't. I perservered, painting and scraping, adding and subtracting until I finally finished the right side of the canvas, integrating it with the left, adding orange for a "pop." It was a definite challenge.

Looking at Bonnie's artwork may be an uplifting and rewarding experience for many, but for those who really "know the artist," her work with fish and aquatic environments goes far beyond art. It is uniquely an art which culminates her life experiences.
While art, fishing, and the call of "open water" have always been an integral part of Bonnie's life, it's been a love shared by her entire family. Her husband and sons are all former commercial fishermen in Door County, and even today hold licenses as charter captains.
More significantly, Bonnie owns and oversees a research-focused, fish hatchery and rearing facility with its website at www.stockyourpond.com. Unique and innovative research at her farm recently led to the award of a US Patent to Bonnie for a new, high-intensity aquaculture system known as a "Superior Floating Raceway."
To facilitate dissemination of this technology, she formed and serves as the CEO of Superior Aquaculture, LLC, with its website at www.superiorraceways.com. Bonnie's creativeness now enables eco-friendly fish production in millions of acres of water formerly unusable. While Bonnie acknowledges that the above holds great promise for revolutionizing fish farming internationally, she likes to stress that her efforts are really focused on improving public health (especially for the poor) through improved nutrition. Bonnie is thrilled that her passion for art can provide an additional, integrated platform for further education, discussion, and action. In this regard, she enjoys closely working with her home church in Florida and other non-profit, environmentally-concerned groups.

To start a sculpture, I look for graceful shapes full of movement that are interesting from every side because sculpture in the round needs to hold up in all directions. I search for interesting negative spaces, textural contrasts, fluidity of motion, strong gesture and arresting silhouettes. I begin the sculpture with
volumes, contours, highlights and shadows and try to eliminate everything extraneous to reveal the fundamental forms underneath.
I want to reduce forms into archetypal, elemental shapes. I’m working towards figures that you could tell from a block away, “that’s an old woman” or, “that’s a young girl”. I’m looking for monolithic shapes of the quintessentially human. There’s an elemental, universal truth to sculptures of human figures that focus
not on the differences between us, but the similarities.
The human condition is the main subject of my work. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and find the human form the most perfect and eloquent expression of the human spirit. At best, a sculpture’s gesture, movement, curves, planes, contours, textures, shape, volumes, forms and structure all work together to reveal the interior space of the spirit.

Art is made from the soul. I feel that a day is not complete without something ‘artfully’ done! It is the landscape imagery and its deep space that I explore in my work by building up 30-40 layers of oil paints and mixed mediums. I apply very thin layers of oil paint to the wood board adding texture, scraping the paint, dissolving areas and then rebuilding them as I construct the painting. The removing process is as important as the layering. This ‘surface tension’ eventually is transformed into a peaceful, subtle mix of texture and natural colors. I strive to accomplish a feeling of serenity not only as I paint, but for the viewer as well.My local surroundings as well as distant trips continue to inspire my artwork. You may see an influence of my travels to Italy, France Portugal, Spain and Ireland as well as my inspiring trips to Santa Fe, New Mexico AND of course my local surroundings in Wisconsin and Michigan. Skies, vast lands, colors and the light also inspire me and I am thankful for the beauty around me and the ability to transform it into my art.

My photographic interests cover a wide range of subject matter (landscapes, architecture, strong graphic patterns), but one of my favorites is creating an image that is impressionistic by nature. This can be done in an almost endless variety of ways, especially in the relatively new digital age. The critical choice of technique is to capture and convey one’s true emotions of the scene without relying on the latest fad or gimmick.

My goal in drawing and painting is to transport the viewer of my work to a special time and place, a place of beauty and insight, which is often fleeting because of the changing effects of light. Fascination with the light and shadow as they define shape and textures has led me to an increasingly wider scope of subject matter. Light passing through sheer fabric, gleaming from a porch at midnight, casting shadows down a wooden pier illuminating boats in the harbor, these subjects challenge me to take you there.Watercolor is my favorite medium because of its fast drying quality, its wide adaptability to various painting techniques, and its blending qualities, which lead to unplanned delightful colors. Although I love to draw, the color adds excitement and defines many moods in subjects. It remains a challenge to select a technique which portrays a subject best. My goal in painting is to show a time and place which enriches the viewer’s life, restores positive values, informs of something new and gives a feeling of awe and joy!About this work: This sunset cruise leaves from Sister Bay nearly every evening. It is beautiful to watch. I modified the sky to add excitement and then reflected the clouds in the water. As you see it is just out past the swimming area.

As a photographer with over 30 years of experience dating back to the darkroom days of my early involvement, I’ve always had a love of monochromatic work. That continues to this day, although I’ve also fallen for increasing journeys into the enticing area of digital color. That said, my true love remains firmly planted in the monochromatic world. I’ve always enjoyed photographing all types of pictorial subject matter from simple graphics to dramatic scenics captured in all forms of interesting lighting and/or weather conditions. This is an example of the latter, take at Cave Point.

My photography, pardon the pun, focuses on capturing images that eschew representation in favor of the abstract using in-camera multiple exposures, a vortoscope (kaleidoscope), as well as focusing my perspective on reflected objects, and using a closer then normal point of view relative to the subject matter. My hope is to create an imaginative yet contemplative relationship between photographer and viewer through the images. My greatest inspiration comes from the early 20th century art movements, Cubism and Futurism, and particularly from noted photographer Alvin Langdon Coburn who is credited with having created the first abstract photographs using a vortoscope. My photographic vision can be summarized citing a Coburn statement from 1916, “Think of the joy of creating something which it would be impossible to classify, or tell which is the top and which is the bottom!”

Erin is a Photo Artist taking local landscape photos in Door County, transferring them to aged aluminum plates and framing them with drift wood or old barn wood from across the County. She has focused her Door County life on experiencing nature and surrounding herself with great people. She loves traveling and taking photos but most of all the hands on building phase of photography art. During the week she is an Occupational Therapist for Door County Medical Center. On the week nights and weekends she enjoys the artistic side of life.
The job of an artist is to provide a sanctuary of beauty in a world that is reliably disappointing. I look for what is good and lovely, and I try to capture those ordinary, glorious moments of beauty and joy which are lavished all around us, if we will only open our eyes to them. At my easel in the Northwoods I celebrate the beauty of God's creation. Art has taken many forms in my life, and I am grateful for all of them.
Although I paint primarily in pastels, I have recently begun to explore other mediums and abstract methods. I am continually learning about art, about myself, and about life, as I try to capture in a painting what my heart feels and my eyes see.
"Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." --Thomas Merton

I have found art making to be a discipline of making space, in a solitary way, that in turn allows a conversation with the forces that are much bigger than our solitary selves. I have been making art my entire life, and that space has become very expansive, revealing the unspoken lessons I need to learn. It is not about following, it is about listening, and then taking action. The action becomes the creative act. I work in many media, at the moment it’s mostly textile art that is wearable and painting. I also love to teach what I know, and sometimes what I’m just figuring out.

I create free form and wheel thrown functional pottery, hand decorated and glazed with an eclectic color palette. Pottery that is visually unique and pleasing to the tactile senses. Pottery that can become a participant in one’s life.
Photography is one of my favorite forms of artistic expression. I enjoy each step of the way of photograph creation from learning and applying new techniques and pre-visualizing, seeking and finding compelling subjects in the right light, to selecting the best camera lens and tripod position for desired perspective and composition, picking the most suitable medium (i.e. color, black and white, or even infrared), capturing and processing raw image files and making editing decisions as to cropping/sharpness/tone/color balance/hue/saturation, etc., and personally printing images on the appropriate type of paper for the subject. Editing of a single image often takes me many hours and many revisions, but if it all leads to creation of a photograph conveying a clear story and stirring viewers’ emotions, I’ve met my goal.
