Hanseatic: The Life and Work of Kirsten and Ellen Topelmann

In 1971, Karsten and Ellen bought a property in the heart of historic Ephraim, Wisconsin. The quaint property would soon be transformed by the Topelmann's to become the place they would build their life together, a home for their family, and where they would create the Hanseatic Art Gallery—a place they would pursue their careers as professional artists over the next 50 years. The exhibition has been curated in collaboration with Lars and Lisa Topelmann to include works from the family’s personal collection along with works from the Ephraim Historical Foundation, and local collectors Richard Malzahn, Karen Malzahn and Martha Bisacchi.
