Reception Memorial Day Weekend

We would like to invite the Door community and all visitors to our Spring Open House on Saturday and Sunday, May 28 and 29, to celebrate the start of our 12th season (9th in Sister Bay.)

Heather and Luke Frykman will be around to present, on their big-screen TV, a new slideshow of Door County images, available for sale on a thumb drive, that can be played on a home TV or computer. Then from 3-5 pm a slideshow of images from their recent photo trips to the American Southwest will be on display.

David Frykman has taken a sabbatical from carving and has been focused instead on painting, drawing from the history and natural wonders of Door County. His new collection of oil paintings include antique tractors and farm equipment, cows, as well as landscapes and shore scenes. He even did some portraits that some of you might recognize.

For pottery collectors, a lot of new pots by Steve Jorgenson will be arriving at the gallery for the weekend.

As always, the artists will be around to chat, refreshments will be available, and a drawing will be held for a photograph or carving. The gallery will be open daily 10-5. For more information, contact the gallery at (920) 854-7351.

Luke and Heather photograph St. Martin Island for Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy announces it has protected St. Martin Island in Upper Michigan. The conservancy acquired the land from the Fred Luber family, who asked Luke and Heather to photograph the island to help showcase the land they are protecting. The island provides critical stopover habitat for birds that migrate through the Great Lakes. To read more visit

Please join us Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29th and 30th, from 10-5 at the Frykman Studio Gallery for our annual Holiday Open House. We're having a drawing and refreshments plus a slideshow of Luke and Heather's newest images.


Photo Tours

Luke and Heather offer sunset or sunrise photo tours through the gallery. If you have an evening or a morning available, just let us know a few days ahead of time to book your tour. It's about 2 1/2 hours where Luke and Heather take you to spots around the county they feel have great photographic opportunities. The tour will offer instruction as well if needed. They even do night photo tours if you are interested in shooting the night sky. The cost is $150. Book now because we have only 7 weeks before peak Fall color. If you want a more intensive 3-day photography class, Luke and Heather are teaching at the Peninsula School of Art Oct. 3-5, course #PH1317. Please give us a call if you have questions on the type of gear you should bring with you.
