This weekend – on to Green Lake!


Sorry I was remiss in posting where we were last weekend. With both of us still working outside our home, sometimes the hours can just whiz past us without us even realizing the week has ended. When we’re not at our jobs, we’re at our full time job of creating functional woodcrafts! My favorite line is “sleep is overrated.”

Now on to where we are this weekend – Green Lake! This is one of our favorites. It’s in a beautiful setting at Playground Park along the Mill Pond. The address is 547 Mill St. Show hours on Saturday: 10am to 5pm, and on Sunday, 10am – 4pm.

The Green Lake Fine Art Show is heralded as one of the Midwest’s finest art shows. The show has received the Green Lake Magazine’s Reader’s Poll Award for “Favorite Attraction” for 8 years. Each year over 600 applications are requested by artists. Only artists who meet the eligibility requirements are selected for this unique and highly regarded show. We’re proud and honored to be included in this show.

Green Lake has always been a beloved artists’ community. But the Fine Art Show goes beyond;  artists from around the state and other parts of the country as well as those who live right in Green Lake, descend on our little hamlet.  The Fine Art Show jurists pride themselves on selecting art in all mediums for their summer show that will be rich in quality yet diverse in content. Every visitor will connect with at least one artist’s work, though it is likely you’ll connect with many. Visitors are invited to leisurely walk among the artist’s displays in Playground Park. Have a conversation and learn what inspired them or just absorb the lovely works of art. You’ll feel artistic passion all around, and when you want to take some of that home with you, it’s easy. All artists’ works are for purchase, allowing you to permanently continue your appreciation at home. Two and three dimensional art abounds in every medium, including oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, drawings, photography, digital art, mixed media, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, glass and wood. With a 40% vendor switchover rate, the show is different every year. The show bustles with live entertainment, piping hot food and cold refreshments. Enjoy the works of more than 100 artists. You’ll be inspired, impassioned and awed.” — Green Lake Area, Chamber of Commerce

We hope you’ll come and see for yourself that this is THE place to be this weekend.
