Artist reception

Monday, April 25th, 2011


Tomorrow River Gallery

The Tomorrow River Gallery will be hosting a reception for the Artists listed below on Friday evening, May 13th from 5-7 pm. The public is invited to attend to meet the artists and enjoy their work. The show will run from May 14th through June 5th, and can be viewed during regular business hours at the Gallery at 182 S Main St, Amherst, WI.

Sherry Zei, of Almond is an avid gardener. She loves flowers, plants and greenery of every hue and texture. According to Zei, “I took years of watercolor classes and had trouble translating my love of the outdoors in an acceptable way. I finally determined that I was a “colorist”. I love color and its changes due to light and texture, so I pursued that direction in my painting. That shift along with finding a style that worked for me has allowed me to develop several images that I feel conveys that sense of love for nature that I feel so strongly. I taught Art for 36 years in Wisconsin, and now that I have retired, I am passionately pursuing gardening, biking, kayaking and my own artwork. My work includes silk painting, oil portraits and watercolor”

Susan Peskie Groshek, New Hope Artist is new to the Tomorrow River Gallery this spring. In her own words, she describes her passion for her art. “My drive and energy towards my art has always been focused on nature and its wonderful lighting. I have always enjoyed working with pastels, mostly because they allow me to work ‘en pleine’ (working outdoors) which invigorates me to see nature at its best. My drawings include scenes from the Great Lakes, flowers from Wisconsin, as well as orchids of Florida and numerous landscape’s. My most recent work features waterscapes created during a visit to the Gulf of Mexico this past winter. “Now that I have a newly established art studio in New Hope Township, I look forward to creating works with the excellent north lighting we have here in Wisconsin.”

John Morser, a Stevens Point photographer, is a native Milwaukee-an who discovered film development at the age of 14. After a successful career in the visual arts and retirement from teaching Political Science at UW-Stevens Point in 2002, he discovered digital imaging. Since then he has been doing studies of patterns and light, of natural and urbanscape’s in Ireland, New England, New Mexico, Iowa, the UP and Wisconsin. His most recent work has been in color, but black and white prints still hold his heart.  Morser shares that his practices are more “intuitive than reasoned or reflective. While this has allowed a continual “joy of discovery”, of seeing things not “seen” by me before, it does hinder my discussion of what I do, or why I did a particularly thing in any set of circumstances. While some of my work is planned, arranged and constructed in the studio, the bulk of my work is not, and the reasons I created a particular image are often not very clear to me.

A classic Tom Sawyer experience?

Monday, March 28th, 2011

AbandonedDo you remember when Tom Sawyer sold his friends on the idea of helping him whitewash the fence?  You will have your chance to live that “sawyer like” experience on Saturday April 9th at Gunner’s Great Garage right here in Manawa.  Shane Hanke- who runs Shane’s Classic Sports Cars at the Garage will play the role of Tom Sawyer, only instead of a fence, you will be learning how to detail with a wide variety of products and techniques Shane’s white Triumph TR7 that is in need of a little TLC. Shane and the crew (which certainly could include you and your friends) will be cleaning the TR7 with Meguiars Clay Bar and other cleaning and polishing products they have been testing. 

Dave Collard of Diamond Dave’s Detailing in Green Bay, WI, has offered to lend his professional assistance in overseeing the “whitewashing” operation as well as sharing some of the techniques they use in house at his shop. This is a rare opportunity to learn some trade secrets before the old car show season is upon us.  Gunner’s Great Garage will supply clay bar, wax, polish, towels and tools to add to your “hands on” experience.  With any luck and Diamond Dave sharing his knowledge and experience…Shane’s Triumph will indeed be just that.

The “hands on” seminar is free and refreshments will be served. Just call Gunner at 715-281-5925 or Shane at 715-281-1089 to let them know you’re planning to be there. It’s Saturday, April 9, at 9 A.M.

Don’t miss it.
