A New Season Begins


Spring at The Studio Gallery in Boulder Junction, WI, just follow the stone path that leads to our gate and door.


Long ago, this little red building was a washhouse for railroad workers. Now it houses a small cooperative art gallery. There is no heat or insulation so we are open Memorial Day weekend through the first week or so of October.

Though we have a small fenced area, the deer have no problem jumping over it. Last year we replaced the live flowers, herbs and hanging baskets with large, painted wood flowers. Made by a few of our members, they were “planted” again this year. They are large, colorful, easily seen from the street, and three have center cutouts where visitors enjoy having their photos taken. Last year, quite a number of people asked what we would do with them when we close as they wanted to buy them! We expect there will be many requests again this summer.

This year we are open Wed. through Sat. each week, so with the members available to gallery-sit, each artist works about three days a month. This past Thursday was a workday for me at the gallery, a beautiful day, a fair number of browsers and buyers, lots of nice compliments on the work, and sales were great for this early in June.

This old bicycle caught my eye the other day with it’s beautiful flowers in the baskets.

  1. What a fun place! Bright and inviting…. and I love the rail road connection. My husband is a retired locomotive engineer and so I rode the trains with him many a time. Only fair, he rides along for the weaving events and spin in's now!Susan'Thrums'

  2. That's how I always felt, Susan. I went fishing many, many times with my husband, and he was always supportive of my weaving. You're right, fair is fair! The Studio Gallery is a nice place to be, and always fun to go in and see what new art has been brought in since you were there last.
