Lake Country Art & Garden Virtual Tour

Sponsored by

Ellenbecker Investment Group

We're going virtual for 2020! Due to the uncertainties of public safety during the pandemic, the Board of Directors decided to convert our 2020 Art & Garden Tour to a “virtual” experience. Rather than opening the gardens to visitors, we will share the beauty and introduce art experiences on social media platforms. A thousand thanks to the planning committee for their flexibility in helping us explore the exciting possibilities of a video-based tour, which will promote our sponsors as well as our live experience, rescheduled for summer 2021. Rumor has it there is chatter about event-themed merchandise for those viewers who want to support us. More information to come.

 

Hats off to the planning committee, led by Juli Garton. The team has done a marvelous job creating and planning this event. The Board sends its apologies for not being able to allow the existing plan to play out this year. Would you like to be involved in the planning? Contact Juli Garton at juligarton@gmail.com.

Window Painters Wanted!

PAAC has been invited to paint the windows in downtown Pewaukee businesses on Thursday, May 28th

 

PAAC members Terri Field and Anne Raskopf are assembling a team of creatives to paint the town! If you would like to be a part of this community initiative please email Anne at raskopfanne@gmail.com.

The project is coordinated by Positively Pewaukee to make the downtown as beautiful as possible for the summer and here's what we know so far:

  • There are multiple storefronts interested in being beautified; some occupied and some empty.

  • Some of the property owners/business owners have offered to cover the cost of supplies if we’ll tell them what the paints cost

  • At least some of the businesses would be open to having the painting done on the interior of the windows so the beauty lasts longer

Upcoming Network Meetings Include:

June 8th: Email Mary Widicus or Anne Raskopf to join the Zoom Meeting

September 14th:  PAAC Members'

Show and Tell

October 12th:  How PAAC Began

November 9th: Flora Elements Arrangement - Inspired by PAAC Art
