Art Exhibits

In the Glass Case Gallery, Hartmut Ringel is showing Uplifting Objects and Boats—mobiles, hanging and standing . They are very sensitive and the smallest heat source can let them turn steadily.  One the occasion of a spiritual retreat, I came with my wife and my son to Wisconsin in 2004. We liked it here and stayed. In the first years in the states, I dropped my expression through art and only worked privately on some projects. In recent years though, art has been coming back to me more and more. At this time I am represented by the Wantoot Gallery in Mineral Point, and by companies in Germany."  He will participate in the Fall Art Tour at his studio in the old Harrisburg Church east of Plain. Ringel's exhibit is available for viewing during regular library hours. 

Mike Chamberlin is exhibiting his mixed media art in the Community Room Gallery during the month of July. He discovered his passion for art during his time at Madison East High School and, in the summer of 1979, Mike delved into the sign industry, immersing himself in the intricacies of traditional sign painting, airbrushing, pinstriping, and gold leaf techniques. In 1992, he took the leap and founded his own sign company. Upon retiring in 2021, Mike redirected his artistic focus to showcase pinstriping as a distinctive art form. Experimenting with epoxy resin to add depth and incorporating various types of leaf—gold, silver, copper, variegated—he creates unique pieces. His artistic vision extends to using wood and recycled materials, resulting in one-of-a-kind artworks that blend tradition with innovation. Mike’s work is available for viewing during regular library hours when the Community Room is not in use. Please ask for the key at the circulation desk.
