Chaudoir Glass Studio Celebrates 40 Years

Chaudoir Glass Studio and the Sister Bay Advancement Association invites everyone to Sister Bay Village Hall on Aug. 29 at 7 pm to help Gary Chaudoir celebrate his 40th anniversary as a stained glass artist in Door County.

As an event for Celebrate Water Door County, the focus of the celebration is water. Chaudoir will display a few glass projects and show slides of commissions done since 1978 that feature Lake Michigan waters, lighthouses, escarpments and boating.

On generous loan from a Jacksonport patron, the featured exhibit is a stained glass rendering of the patrons Lake Michigan water view, with a romantic backstory. The three panel project depicts sunrise over Cave Point, sailboats, seagulls, whitecaps, moonlight over Cana Island and the loving couple in their Adirondack chairs.

A celebration cake with an exact digital reproduction of the glass project can be enjoyed by all along with Island Orchard Cider, wine, coffee and water. For more information call 920.854.4825.
