On Sunday, July 17 from 2-6PM the Martinez Studio on Hwy. 57 south of Jacksonport will host an opening for artist Bruce Basch. The show is titled Pieces for the Puzzle. Basch’s work borrows from the visual language of Robert Rauscheberg and Jasper Johns and includes eclectic use of found objects as well as the collage format with a folk art twist. Chances are you have seen his work in restaurants around the county. It is intriguing from a visual standpoint as well as intellectually satisfying.

The Martinez Studio is home to contemporary tapestry by Wence Martinez and symbolic paintings on paper by Sandra Martinez. Their studio is open daily May through October from 10-5.  Call 920-823-2154 with questions.

And after a day filled with art there is nothing better than relaxing on your private deck or patio at the High Point Inn with a bottle of wine and some snacks, immersed in a discussion of the work of Bruce Basch. Call us today to make your reservation. Toll Free: 800-595-6894 or 920-854-9773.

A Midsummer’s Eve in Door County’s Historic Ephraim!

Copyright • Dan Eggert Photo

One of the beauties of Ephraim is its ability to conserve a connection to the past.  The Ephraim Historical Foundation is an important part of the village of Ephraim.  The foundation helps keep the museums alive with interactive tours, to delve into Ephraim’s rich past and of course to continue the traditional festivals.

This coming weekend is the Fyr Ball festival.  This is a celebration of Midsummer’s Eve that follows many Norwegian traditions.

This year is looking to be even more exciting than years past!  There is live music, food, arts and crafts, a used book sale, fireworks, bonfires along the water and more!  This year there will even be amusement rides right next to the Red Putter, our neighbor here at High Point Inn.

This is a great time to bring the family to Door County for a fun filled weekend!  Join us at High Point Inn and you will just be a short walk or a trolley ride away from all the excitement!  We have the outdoor and indoor pool ready and the gas grills all set up!

Make sure to check out Ephraim’s website with all the details of the event!
