Exhibit of Blei’s art opens at UU Gallery
Artwork by the late, renowned Door County writer Norbert Blei is on exhibit in October in Unitarian Universalist Gallery.
The show opens with a reception from noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 2. With selections of Blei’s paintings as a backdrop, local poets Al DeGenova, Sharon Auberle and Jude Genereaux will read short selections from his written work at 12:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served and the public is welcome.
Few of Blei’s many readers are aware of his prolific visual arts output, comprised of a large collection of colorful, topical watercolors and mixed-media paintings. He used painting as a break from long sessions at the typewriter, he often noted, and to express what can’t easily be communicated in words on a page.
Unitarian Universalist Gallery is at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County, 10341 Wisconsin 42, Ephraim. The gallery is open from 1 to 3 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 920-854-7559 or go to http://www.uufdc.org.
