Bill has finds it enjoyable to depict scenes from creation—imitating nature. My favorite subject matter is wild flowers—flowers that have become a metaphor of the brevity of life. The prints Bill creates capture the light and fleeting beauty of objects of nature. Bill is also working on a watercolor series, called “Fruitful Art”. He paints veggies.

Sharon Redinger


The close-up world of leaves and the splendor of landscape has captured Sharon’s attention in her painting. Sharon’s watercolor style is described as Hard-edge Watercolor Painting. Multiple layers of color washes create saturated colors and dark shadows.  Sharon also paints a series of fruit paintings called “Fruitful Art”.

Chris and Mike have managed to combine two of their favorite pastimes: travel and photography. Mike has been traveling the world since the early 70s with Chris joining him in the mid-80s. Together they have visited over 70 countries. Photos and photo cards from all 7 continents are on display. Though neither is a professional photographer, both enjoy making photos that capture the faces and places they’ve visited. They enjoy sharing them with their families and friends. Chris will have a solo exhibit featuring her travel photos at the PhotoMidwest Studio, 700 Rayovac Drive, Madison, during July & August.

Previously a preservation architect, Brian now spends some of his time in retirement making art. He has painted since he was a child but didn’t try watercolors until college.  He did not take a woodblock printmaking class until after his retirement. He often combines the two media, adding watercolor to his prints. He is inspired by the local natural and built environments, especially trees, gardens, prairies and water.  More of Brian’s work can be seen at U-Frame-It on Johnson Street; Outside the Lines Art Gallery in both Dubuque, Iowa, and Galena, Illinois; and at his website:

4. Ken Vogel, 917 East Dayton Street



“I’ve been making puppets, mostly string but also hand, for over fifty years. Most of them are of people, famous and not, but there are animal ones as well.  The heads are made of papier-mâché and the bodies of cardboard and newspaper tubes. I sew the costumes on

my 1940’s Singer. I welcome commissions and requests for specific characters.”

5. Mary Gill, 941 East Dayton Street

“I grew up in Trinidad and Tobago but have lived in the USA for over 30 years. Many of my paintings are about my Caribbean experience. I am a graduate of UW-Madison in Art Education.  Though I work mainly with oil paint, I recently began to work with collage using fabric and paper where I continue to explore imagery that addresses my Caribbean experience.”

6. Evie Woltil Richer, 122 N. Brearly

PORTRAITURE- black/white charcoal drawings, PHOTOGRAPHY

As a student of the local art studio, Atwood Atelier, Sharon draws portraits from live models. She works to bring in personality and contrast to make the portrait come alive, identifying the subtle expression or the glint in the eye. Her analytical style brings in a lifelike rendering of the subject. Her approach focuses on two medium styles – black charcoal on toned paper, highlighting with white charcoal. She also focuses on the reverse – white charcoal on

black paper, drawing from the negative.

Building on this experience, she also focuses on photography throughout her travels – always looking for that one shot that tells a story, bringing the viewer back for another look.

8. Ripley Patzlaff, 1206 Elizabeth Street

608-334-7520, [email protected]


Ripley has lived in Tenney/Lapham all her life. She has a passion for art and has begun exploring digital art. She loves creating new characters and gets her inspiration from books and DnD role-playing with friends. Her graphic designs truly capture the essence of her imaginative characters. Every detail, color and expression is carefully woven into an image that leaves you wondering what led to that snapshot in time—the mischievous grin, the laughter, the melancholy or the loneliness. You can tell your own story. She also enjoys creating unique jewelry, ornaments, and clay creatures. She will be sharing some of her art for all to enjoy & welcomes you to step into her creative realm.
