The library welcomes the public to view their upcoming “Art in the Library” exhibit featuring Sue Klein. Her artwork can be viewed during library open hours.

Sue’s exhibit features painted dog portraits, Northwoods Aurora Borealis paintings, and black fine line ink drawing house portraits from photographs. The exhibit includes details on how to commission a dog or cat portrait from a photograph or a house portrait from a photograph.

Sue received her Masters in Art Education and Fine Art at the University of Wisconsin- Madison and then taught art for the Madison Public Schools for 32 years. After retiring, she taught for the University’s Art Education Department for another 3 years.

Then, to try something different, Sue began an apiary (MisBEEhavin’ Apiary) for the next 12 years, selling honey and honey products from her home and at summer fairs and farmer’s markets. Sue and her husband built their current home in Natural Lakes (north of Boulder Junction) nine years ago.

Sue’s degree in art concentrated on painting and drawing. Most of her paintings are done in acrylic with permanent line drawings on top (various mediums) to bring out the textures and highlights of the subject. Many paintings tell a story or impart “attitude” that she sensed from each of them.
