SE Chapter meets at Niemi Sculpture Gallery

by Gary John Gresl

SE chapter meeting
Saturday, June 3rd, was a gorgeous early
summer day as the SE Chapter held its final yearly at the Niemi Sculpture Gallery near Kenosha. Members grilled brats and burgers and mingled among the acres of sculptures and groomed landscape.

Bruce and Suzi Niemi, hosts for this picnic meeting, have created a wonderful sculpture park just north of the WI/IL border. Many dozens of outdoor and indoor sculptures by a variety of artists are on view in diverse materials, sizes and styles. These are original works ranging from a few inches to huge pieces stretching 30 feet. It is an impressive place and worthy of a visit for the curious admirer and serious art collector.
