Heritage Program 2021 Heritage Programs 2021 Artists List (PDF) – Download to view the dates and artists who will be presenting during the Farmers Market events throughout the summer at the Museum.
Sister Bay Historical Society is again sponsoring the Heritage Program during the summer of 2021. Each Saturday beginning June 26 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.
June 26 will feature Tom Seagard, Brigitte Kozma, and Marcia Nickols – mixed media, oils & pastels.
He will display and demonstrate his artwork, as well as display that of his wife Brigitte Kozma. Both have been Sister Bay Artists for the past 46 years at their Mill Road Gallery in downtown Sister Bay.
Seagard is well known for his wildlife images as well as historic scenes of Sister Bay. His work is done in mixed media, some of it unusual, such as instant coffee, kid’s tempera paint, food coloring, and more traditional pencils, watercolor, and as Tom says: “ Anything else he thinks will leave a mark when used.”
It’s amazing what he can create with these unusual media. Subjects include all types and kinds of wildlife, trains, hobos, tractors, Native American portraits, and scenes of Old Sister Bay starting from 100 years ago.
Marcia works with watercolors, watercolor collages on handmade paper, and water-based oils. Because everything Marcia uses is basically water-based she is currently exploring the use of various textural techniques including impasto, wax, saran wrap, gauze, salts, pallet knife, and alcohol to name a few. Water scenes dominate her work because of her fascination with light reflections and movement within the water depths. As the light source changes, a completely new scene emerges offering unlimited painting opportunities
