THEME

I became a fan of the Beatles in high school and I grew to appreciate them even more when I was in my 30’s. I love their catchy tunes, simple harmonies and the emotions their music evokes. To me, there’s nothing like listening to “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” when I need to be inspired or motivated.

Regardless of age, gender, social status or race, the music of the Beatles has entertained and inspired so many of us. As such, it seems logical for me to choose the band for this year’s summer show. Inspired by The Beatles will run July 8 through August 13.

Print Swap at the Knaak + Juarez Studio

Today we had our first Print Swap at the Knaak + Juarez Studio.

As artists we collect the works of other artists either by buying, trading, or acquiring. So the idea was why not start a photo collection with the artists that are in the community. Yet, still have a collection that is unique. 

It was neat to hear each photographer’s intent behind the photos that they brought in. Such diversity amongst local photographers living and working in Sheboygan and Kohler. 

Another one will be planned for the Spring. If you are interested in participating simply contact Frank Juarez below.
