Finding its home in the former Shirley Schanen Gruen Studio in the charming city of Port Washington on the coast of Lake Michigan, the Blue Awning Gallery takes its name from the iconic awnings that have drawn attention to this corner building for decades.

The Blue Awning Gallery showcases a well curated mix of paintings, sculpture and finely crafted artisan products from Wisconsin and Regional artists.  We will also continue to offer originals and signed and dated prints of Shirley Schanen Gruen’s fabulous painted scenes of Port Washington.
