Heritage Program 2021 – Artist: the Payne’s
August 6 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sister Bay Historical Society is again sponsoring the Heritage Program during the summer of 2022. Each Saturday beginning June 25 artists display their work. The Programs run Saturday morning during the Farmers Market at the Corner of The Past Museum. So, it is an opportunity to buy fresh produce and enjoy an artist’s work.
August 6 will feature Stillwoods Art Gallery: Carol & Don Payne – Photography & Pastel Artist.
These Door County artists work in several different media including photography, pastel painting, and stained glass work. The variety of their work is what makes them so interesting. Locally, both studied stained glass techniques under Gary Chaudoir, and Don studied photographic and printing techniques under Dan Anderson and Suzanne Rose, painting under Susan Ploughe and Tom Nachreiner.
Before retirement, both were professors and administrators at Iowa State University. Don was an English Professor specializing in Rhetoric and Professional Communication, and he directed the university-wide language arts program focusing on written, oral, visual, and electronic communication. Carolyn was a professor of higher education history and philosophy, specializing in educational research methods, and served as Assistant Dean of the Graduate College. As art collectors, their interests run to nineteenth-century Japanese woodblock prints (especially Chikanobu triptychs), to landscape watercolors, and to impressionist and surrealist oil paintings.
Stillwoods Art Studio and Gallery is located at 11930 Lakeview Road in Ellison Bay.
