“Egg Harbor Meadow”

Judi Ekholm, Artist

Purchased April 2015

For over 30 years Judi Ekholm’s paintings have been about JOY.

“I find inspiration in the land, the sky, and the water of our wonderful world. My paintings are about the happiness I find in color, pattern, and the moods of the land. These are the elements I can run through my head, my heart and my soul and then use for my own personal painting language,” shares Ekholm.

The Village of Egg Harbor is honored to feature one of Ekholm’s original outdoor paintings located on the Paul J Bertschinger Community Center (home of the Village Administration offices, the Library and Post Office)!

“I explore and plan adventures that will trigger my imagination. I consistently search for the “Perfect Picnic Spot”

“Steel Rooster”

William Jauquet, Artist

William Jauquet’s steel sculpture “The Rooster” graces Harbor View Park, located in the middle of the village, adjacent to the marina. The piece, valued at $18,000, was installed in August of 2103 and was purchased in March of 2015 with the funds from the EGGstravaganza Art Event and Fundraiser. Jauquet began his art career as a rural folk carver, becoming nationally recognized in only a few years. He started woodcarving in 1978 and was honored with a one-person show in Washington D.C. sponsored by the Museum of American Folk Art. He began working in bronze in 1986, using the lost wax method of casting bronze. Jauquet casts his studio bronzes in his own foundry near Green Bay. He does everything from design to sculpting to casting and finishing. All of his studio bronzes are one-of-a-kind with a chemical patina and hot wax finish.

Beginning around 2007, Jauquet began working in welded steel. Many of his metal sculptures can be seen in the Edgewood Orchard Galleries sculpture garden, located in Fish Creek. View this piece in person at the Egg Harbor, Harbor View Park, located in the center of the Village.

Blue Sail by Richard Edelman

Blue Sail” – Richard Edelman, Artist

Purchased February 2015

To commemorate the completion of the new marina in Egg Harbor, the Village commissioned renowned sculptor, Richard Edelman, to create a piece of public art that would echo the magic of sailing. Edelman has a great interest in the wind. Which has led him to rebuild many 1930’s Wincharger generators, the world’s first wind turbines, and to create sculptures based on American weathervanes.

“Straight lines will not do for the wind, but a series of crescents together seemed to fill with the wind. The electrostatic paint process was used to apply the blue of marine canvas, which in turn references the color of brisk, blowing, sunny days on Green Bay.”
