GREEN BAY PRESS GAZETTE: 3-D artists featured in last week at DCAL Gallery (10/11/2016)

Five three-dimensional artists who are Door County Art League members and use a variety of media to create their work are featured in the coming week at the Gallery of the Door County Art League during the gallery's last-ever week of operation.

The artists are Jane Zwickey, who weaves baskets; Lou Williams, wood turning; Linda LeClaire, jewelry; Patsy Stierna, pottery and Jim DeFrane, glass. Their works were exhibited this season in the courtyard at the Top of the Hill Shops in Fish Creek, home of the gallery.

DeFrane has created custom handcrafted art glass for over 30 years for at his studio at G&J Glassworks, 59 S. Madison Ave., Sturgeon Bay. Etched glass, stained glass and repair and restoration are part of his repertoire. For more information, go to www.gjglassworks.com.

LeClaire, works in mixed media with found objects and copper, said of her jewelry, “I see shapes in my mind that need to become three-dimensional form. I seek patterns in nature. I find joy in combining organic and inorganic materials and designs.”

Stierna throws and hand-builds pottery at her home studio in Sturgeon Bay, with her work reflecting her love of nature. She exhibits throughout Door County at local farmers markets.

Williams turns wood in his studio in Sturgeon Bay out of a variety of burls and blocks, including redwood, maple and oak. He has participated in shows throughout the United States and Wisconsin and is a member of the Board of the American Association of Woodturners. He also is a photographer.

Basket weaving evolved in Jane Zwickey’s life after a New Year’s resolution 25 years ago. She teaches basket making and shares the history, skill and characteristics of quality baskets.

The DCAL Gallery is in the rear courtyard of the Top of the Hill Shops, Wisconsin 42 and County F, Fish Creek. It is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Oct. 22, when it closes permanently as the art league disbands.
