Plum Bottom Pottery will open its doors on Thursday, July 14th from 6-9pm to display the newest creations of resident porcelain artist Chad Luberger and jewelry designer Angela Lensch. Every summer Plum Bottom hosts a summer event featuring the latest work of the innovative artists that call Plum Bottom home. One of a kind art won’t be the only feature of the evening; visitors will also be treated to Pamela Moore’s artistic culinary delights. This year Moore will prepare a feast, styled with Cuban flavors.
“This event has always been my favorite here at Plum Bottom,” says Luberger, “It’s always a privilege for me to show my newest work in the surroundings that have such an impact on its direction.” Luberger will unveil three months of his work in porcelain. He has focused on his signature, colorful porcelain wall sculptures for the event.
Angela Lensch, Plum Bottom’s resident jewelry artist will also showcase her new summer jewelry designs, featuring her one of a kind woven jewelry. Angela is known for her ability to ‘paint with gemstones.’ Many of these new colorful combinations will be showcased. Lensch’s newest focus has been weaving with strictly gold and silver sans gemstones, “I love how versatile this line is, I’m exploring many different variations on a single theme,” says Lensch.
Plum Bottom for the first time has also added two dimensional art to an ever growing cadre of artists represented by the gallery. Erin Nolan’s fine art woodblock prints will be on display, as well as Davide Toffolon’s Pen and Ink Trees. These artists compliment each other with their masterful interpretations of nature.
Luberger invites you to come out to this very special, once a year event and allow your senses to feast on the food, art and stunning surrounds of this Door County art destination. Plum Bottom Pottery is open daily through the end of October from 10-5pm.
