“Global Fusion” Show Offers International Art Tour at The Arts Mill in Grafton, Opening Jan. 31

Jan. 27, 2014

Grafton, Wis. – A new art show opening Friday at The Arts Mill, 1300 14th Ave., will offer visitors a multi-continent, international art tour all under one roof.

“Global Fusion: An International Selection of Fine Art” will spotlight varied art forms that explore diverse cultural perspectives and shared human experiences. The show, running through March 8, will include art from the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Highlighted artists are Andrew J. Andropolis, Minnie Bhupathi, Adrian Spinks and Gul Niazi. Works by regional artists will also be displayed.

A free opening reception Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. will feature dance performances by Bollywood Hollywood. Its members will perform a medley of Bollywood songs with global influences consisting of Indian classical, Middle Eastern and reggae beats.

The reception, open to the public, will have international wines and Greek food for purchase. Many displayed art pieces will be for sale. The Arts Mill, located in the historic Grafton Mill, houses more than a dozen artists’ studios and a boutique of unique items from local and regional artists. The Arts Mill operates in conjunction with the North Shore Academy of the Arts.

“We are thrilled with the incredible diversity, awareness and creativity that the works of Global Fusion display,” said Sheri Bestor, founder and President of the North Shore Academy of the Arts. “These pieces will transport viewers to places they’ve never been, while reinforcing that art is a universal language that expresses itself in many different, profound ways.”

Andropolis, one of the featured artists, was a Sheboygan native and longtime Door County resident. Known as “Jack” to many, his art crossed over into multiple mediums, from paintings to sculptures to jewelry. A former art teacher at Southern Door High School, his skill, passion and creativity was displayed in numerous galleries as contemporary art, contemporary abstract art and modern art.

Andropolis was one of Door County’s longest living, continual resident artists. His work, influenced by Picasso, Degas, Renoir and Pollock, spanned more than 50 years of creation. During this time, Jack and his wife, Ann, raised four sons and operated both a resort and restaurant.

More information about “Global Fusion” is available at www.theartsmill.org or by calling (262) 377-3516. The Arts Mill is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
