The Full Story
A message from Karen

Earlier last spring, it all began, when Stephanie Trenchard and Jeremy Popelka invited me to partner with them in opening SOMI Gallery in Sturgeon Bay. It is such a joy to create, exhibit, and sell my own original oil and wax pieces alongside the glass work of these two incredibly talented artists!

Then two months ago the space next door to SOMI became available, and I took yet another plunge and in November 2021 I decided to open Avenue Art and Co on 3rd! I truly felt drawn and inspired to further share the talents of my creative team at Avenue Art & Company, the business I have led and loved for the past 35 years in Appleton.

The entire Stroh Building on 3rd Avenue in historic downtown Sturgeon Bay is a special location that is quickly turning into an artistic destination and I proudly introduce…Avenue Art and Co on 3rd as it's newest addition.


Located at 39 South 3rd Avenue in downtown Sturgeon Bay, Avenue Art on 3rd  will offer regional original art and custom framing design. Our workroom will continue to be in Appleton with the veteran staff that have delivered the goods for over 30 years. 

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to my Appleton crew and my sister for helping make this dream a reality!

We hope to see you in beautiful Door County soon!   Karen
