Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin friends and patrons… this is going to be worth a day trip! Mark your calendars for this next event coming up. If you’re free, I will have a gallery show set up on Simmons Island for the Pike River Rendezvous – the first weekend of August.
The Tall Ships are coming to Kenosha, Wisconsin and the arrival begins with a parade of sails held on Thursday afternoon, August 1st. This is when all of the tall ships will move up-and-down the coastline before seeking their moorings sites in the inlet adjacent to our historical encampment area.
I will have the show mounted by the parade of sails and then, every day from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. through Sunday, I will be in our 16′ square marquis style tent displaying my work. There will be original paintings and some prints with a general theme of water, coastlines, ships and boats to coincide with the tall ships event. [https://www.kenoshatallships.com/]
The encampment I am in has no charge and is in sight of where the ships will be docked. If you have wanted to see some of my work live and in person, this is a good opportunity.
The weather looks like it will be wonderful. I hope to see you there!
