Upon their return to Ohio this spring, Khloe from Denver, Colorado, and Kylie from Phoenix, Arizona, they decided to combine their independent art forms “to create funny island drawings as a great way to channel spare-time energy.”  Khloe explained, “Our goal is to have 100 doodles completed by the end of the summer season.  Our 100th doodle will be a collaborative work, and we plan to sell the art as prints or perhaps on stickers at the Put-in-Bay Artisans market or the Art in the Park festival.”

Jim Siemer to Unveil new Put-in-Bay Painting on Sunday

Jim Siermer Art

Jim Siemer’s art celebrates the bright side of life on the Bass Islands.

Jim Siemer will deliver his new artwork, entitled “PUT-IN-BAY,” to The Country House gift shop located next to Frostys Bar on Put-in-Bay this Sunday. Jim created “PUT-IN-BAY” emulating the Fauvist painters who were in vogue at the start of the 20th Century. The Fauvist used bold bright colors and flattened images. Jim notes, “I wanted to create a viewpoint looking through the Put-in-Bay harbor towards the famous strip of bars, gift shops and restaurants on Put-In-Bay.”
