Paula Swaydan Grebel – “Sturgeon Bay Shipyard”

Paula Swaydan Grebel‘s new painting Sturgeon Bay Shipyard, oil on canvas, 14.5×25.5 inches challenges the viewer to see a mundane scene in a new way.  Expressing the energy of an industrial location rather than depicting it through gritty details, this diptych is as much about the areas created by scraping with a palette knife, as it is about the richly textured paint left behind.  Paula will be showing more of her plein aire paintings in our Summer in Wisconsin exhibition which will take place July 1st through September 3rd.  Please click to visit Paula Swaydan Grebel’s page on our website at to see her other new paintings.
