Portage resident Janice Rice-Smith Art show

Trails Lounge is displaying the oil paintings of Portage resident Janice Rice-Smith from May 6th to June 30th.  This exhibit may be viewed Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 9 p.m. (closed Sunday and Monday) at Trail’s Lounge Supper Club, 125 Wauona Trail, Portage, WI.

Janice-Rice-Smith-olf


Rice-Smith is a self-taught artist with no formal art training. She began drawing in grade school and painting at age 13.


Her work has been displayed at various gallery exhibits and art fairs. She resides at Swan Lake with her family enjoying the rural setting to inspire her painting. Her subjects include barns, wolves and country scenes.
She prefers blending the oil colors with her fingers. The resulting soft edges of her figures and landscapes evoke a peaceful mood.
 

If you are a local area artist interested in exhibiting your work at Trail’s Lounge, please contact Pat Madani at 608-742-2325.

Featured Artist - Mary Heinze

Mary Heinze is the featured artist showing her watercolor paintings at Trails Lounge in Portage from December 29-mid February.  Her 20+ watercolor paintings capture her life on the Heinze family dairy farm as well as portraits of family, friends, and architecture.

Below are her biography and a photo took at the opening of her exhibit.

After spending $25 in Christmas money on supplies, I started watercolor painting over twenty years ago.

I graduated from Kirkwood High School, St. Louis, Missouri, and then from UW-Madison in Home Economics Journalism, Foods and Textiles.

My only art classes were at the UW: Basic Drawing, Elements of Design, Art History and Creative Stitchery.

I have taught art classes at MATC-Portage and have sold my artwork for many years at the World Dairy Expo.

Presently, I participate in events at the Portage Center for the Arts and the Wisconsin Regional Arts Program (WRAP).  

I help out on our family farm with my husband, Tom, and son, Mark (Beth) Heinze.  I also have two daughters, Jen (Bradley) Martens and Julie McKibben as well as six grandchildren.
