About the Gallery:
Started by Kendra Bulgrin and Jimmy Eddings in Algoma, Wisconsin in 2015 with a goal of presenting contemporary works of art and craft. The artist-run gallery specializes in showing regional and national artists and craftspeople both emerging and established. It is our hope to help first time art buyers, as well as collectors expand or start their art collection in a friendly, knowledgeable atmosphere.
Algoma, Wisconsin is a small, quiet Lake Michigan community. Commercial fishing is a large draw. The living space is located in an apartment above the gallery. It is centrally located in town, a grocery store is a block away, a library, several restaurants and bars are in close proximity. The location is close to gorgeous state parks, the Anhapee trail, Lake Michigan, Door County, excellent birding, the oldest winery in Wisconsin and a brewery are a block away!
Other sources of income
There are many opportunities for part-time work in town or seasonal work in Door County if a part-time job is needed. If you have a ceramic back ground there is a possibility to teach classes next door at Clay on Steele.
