Pewaukee Area Arts Council Exhibit: "Stories We Tell"

Featured Artists: Heidi Hallet, Mary Widicus, Abigail Engstrand, Marilyn Horst, Jennifer Herro, Mary Weber, Anne Raskopf and Barbara Kelsey & Irene Taylor. 

This community-based fine arts organization began meeting regularly on October 21, 2004. In just a few short months, PAAC founders developed and adopted a Mission Statement, ByLaws and Articles of Incorporation which resulted in establishing our 501(c)3 status.

Today, as a non-profit organization, PAAC is dedicated to encouraging and promoting quality art experiences, programs, events and cultural opportunities for the Lake Country area. Membership is not restricted to any geographic area…we have members throughout the state and region!

Abigail Engstrand

Abigail Engstrand Artist Statement

“My artlife began with story books my Mom read to me. I began drawing my own stories. My paintings and felts are conversations with myself, of life around me. My play of colors and the material processes carry with them stories of past lives.”

Jennifer Herro Artist Statement

“I enjoy the challenge of painting what is directly in front of my eye, striving for a realistic depiction.  My goal is to capture my subject as nature provides, feeling as though it doesn’t need altering.  If something I paint makes a personal connection to the viewer, all the better.”

Barbara Kelsey Artist Statement

“The Ferrier tells its own story, the boring wait while the Ferrier works.  The young girls who love to dance and flow to music with movement and grace.  The gardener has proudly placed their plants in a place of light for all to admire.”
