Carta Summer 2013 Update

We wonder how many of you recognize this view from Door Bluff County Park?

Our Door County days have been filled with enjoyable hikes, seeking wildflowers, and hanging out with new and old friends alike.

Now that the summer solstice has come and gone … we are busy getting ready for Dave’s featured artist show at Edgewood Orchard Galleries that runs from August 10th through the 28th with a reception on Saturday, August 10th from 4-7pm.

The show will feature Dave’s work along with painter Mary Ulm Mayhew, painter William A. Suys, Jr., sculptor C.T. Whitehouse and jeweler Regina Imbsweiler.

Edgewood Orchard Galleries (4140 Peninsula Players Road) is a beautiful gallery in a beautiful setting.  During the season, the galleries and sculpture garden are open daily.  Hope you get a chance stop by if you are in Door County.

Dave’s work was also selected for juried shows at the DeVos Art Museum in Marquette, MI and at the Wright Art Museum in Beloit, WI.  The show at the DeVos runs June 7 – August 4, 2013 and the show at the Wright runs June 15 – July 25, 2013.

Happy New Year!

Hard to believe 2012 has passed into history.  We spent a very busy year moving our home & studio from Madison to Door County, WI.  I’ve posted our sporadic updates from last year here on our blog.

While we miss many things about Madison, it is so wonderful being up here for our first full winter.  We’re finding plenty to do — including hiking at various state parks and conservancy lands — often through a winter wonderland.   The snow comes and then goes, but the winter beauty remains!  Here’s a photo I took at the Ridges Sanctuary.

I’m looking forward to Groundhog’s Day on Saturday (February 2 already!).  We’re planning to start the day off at the Great Waffle Breakfast at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall.  This annual event is a fundraiser for the Ridges and also celebrates the birth date of Emma Toft, one of the organization’s founding visionaries.  In fact, we might head over to Toft Point State Natural Area for a hike after breakfast.  Earlier this fall, we hiked in and were lucky enough to see the harvest moon rise over the aptly named Moonlight Bay.

Also looking forward to March and catching a show that blends the talents of the Grace Chosy Gallery artists (including Dave) included in 100 Artists of the Midwest book published last summer.
