Admission is free courtesy of our generous sponsors! Tour hours on Friday are 10am to 6pm and Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Be sure to visit all 18 venues where you’ll have a chance to meet painters, printmakers, potters, furniture makers; fiber, glass, metal and leather artists, photographers and more. There will be demos, door prizes, snacks, and the opportunity to purchase original, fine art directly from the artists who created it. Look for the colorful Spring Art Tour signs! The Plymouth Arts Center (Stop #1) is the presenting organization and will serve as the tour headquarters as well as hosting artists in its greatroom. The Spring Art Tour is sponsored by Sargento, McKenzie Financial, Huberty, Bank First, and Love 98.5fm Radio Station.

The Plymouth Arts Center initiated this premier event in 2015 to increase the visibility of the many fine artists working and living in the greater Sheboygan County area and to encourage an appreciation for the role that artists play in the vitality of our communities. Spring Art Tour guides may be found at all participating venues and throughout the greater area. Visitors may also request a copy by calling the Arts Center. The PAC website includes a full description of the event, maps, links to the artists’ studios, and to area restaurants and lodging facilities. Begin the tour at Stop #1 (the PAC) to visit with the participating art tour artists, view Gallery 110 North’s “Alive in the Arts” Juried exhibit and the PAC Member’s Gift Shop. Something new this year: Children’s Art Projects will be presented in the PAC outdoor plaza (weather permitting, or in the classroom) on both Friday and Saturday from 11am to 2pm. All will be able to contribute to our community group project and also participate in the individual projects.

Community Event, All Ages
Plymouth Arts Center is very saddened to announce that our summer Cheese Capital Jazz & Blues Crawl, scheduled for Friday, August 14, 2020 has officially been canceled amidst concerns over COVID-19. We have been pondering for many weeks over this decision. Due to the Jazz Crawl’s potential to bring large crowds together in small areas, we decided that it would be best to cancel for this year. As always, our top priority is the safety and health of our performers, guests, volunteers, and venues. We are incredibly disappointed that we won’t be able to see all of you and share in an evening of great Jazz & Blues music, we will miss you! Each year we look forward to this important and necessary fundraising event for our organization, this year would have been our 17th annual. We’ll be back next year, and we sincerely hope that good health and prosperity for our community and country returns. We ask you to please mark your calendar for next year’s fundraiser, Friday, August 13, 2021!

Art, All Ages
Encaustic, has an ancient history and an increasing resurgence of interest. The challenge of heating and cooling the beeswax captures the dynamic of chaos and demands control unlike that of any other painting medium. Encaustic medium is creating a wide variety of effect and depths in the layers beneath. Abstract pieces explore the possibilities of texture and depth that can be created with encaustics. In stark contrast, realistic pieces explore the detail and near photo realism you can achieve in encaustic painting. The overall effect produces a tactile pattern that captivates the viewer and entices them to touch.
