The ethereal Door County landscape paintings of Margaret Lockwood will be featured at an exhibit at Mr. Helsinki’s Restaurant in Fish Creek beginning October 16th, 2011. There will be an opening reception of the exhibit on Thursday October 27th from 5 to 7 PM.
Lockwood is known throughout the Midwest for her often large scale abstract paintings of trees, skies and water. She says about them, “We are surrounded by the beauty of this peninsula with its weathered shores, dramatic skies and mysterious woods. I take it all in then paint my memories, impressions, emotions and relationship to them from my studio. My desire is to capture the spirit of our home and the moments of our lives here. I try to create welcoming spaces that bridge reality and abstraction. At some point though my paintings become more about color, atmosphere and space in the abstract rather than about specific landscapes or memories.”
More of Lockwood’s paintings can be seen at her studio at Woodwalk Gallery which will be open by appointment November through April, and is open daily May through October.

Woodwalk Gallery is located at 6746 County Road G, 5 miles south of Egg Harbor and 2 miles north of Carlsville on Highway 42, just toward the Bay from Shartner’s Farm Market.
