Blue Heron Artisan Gallery - Port Washington, WI

Blue Heron Artisan Gallery
102 E Pier Street
Port Washington, WI

Above is a photo of the Blue Heron Artisan Gallery which recently opened in the charming city of Port Washington, WI.  The gallery is housed in the 1929 historical old fire engine house, which is on the National Register of historic places.

I was recently contacted by the owner/operator of the gallery, Bette Langford, to see if I was interested in putting my fiber fantasy art in the gallery.  I will now be offering my one-of-a-kind, original designed fiber fantasy figures and jewelry for sale at the gallery. This is a great alternative to doing art shows! Below are photos of my creations in the glass case where they will be on display for sale. What I have currently available at the gallery (as of 7/29/12) is what is pictured in each of these 4 photos.  I will be periodically changing the selections in the form of new fairies, mermaids, and fiber fantasy jewelry....fairy face pins, hand knit necklaces, butterfly pins, hand knit beaded earrings and more.  If you live in the area, be sure to stop by for a visit.  There is a lot of great art to look at and buy!

Any artists who are interested in having their work displayed in the gallery, should feel free to contact Betty Langford for further information. As of this past Sunday, July 29th, Bette said she has 3 glass cases still available such as the one pictured below, and approximately 30 walls spaces available. The rental fees are very reasonable.

Below are photos showing several of the artists already displaying their work in the gallery. Bette is also an artist and creates one-of-a-kind driftwood sculptures as shown in the photos below.

These wall quilts were gorgeous!

The Gallery also has "The Heron's Gift Shop" located in the office area on the main floor where you will find fine collectibles and jewelry.

I will be putting updated photos of the various artists out here, so do stop back for a visit.  Any artists interested in being in the gallery, be sure to contact Betty Langford.  You may contact Bette at the Gallery at: 262-268-0243 or visit
