    • After 13 years of successful gallery and garden curation, it is our desire to move on, relocating to be more present with those in our lives that we love most - family. During our time of finding new owners, we will provide limited gallery space and hours of operation while hosting private parties, special events or Happenings! We will be open Sundays June 12-October 30, for the Kewaunee County Farmers Market, which is held in our gardens. Keep an eye on FB or the website for TFP special events when our gallery will be open. Please contact us for unredeemed and unexpired gift certificates. Thank you, for wonderful years. The Flying Pig, Gallery & Greenspace is a high-spirited celebration of art and plants set along the quiet Lake Michigan shore. Slowly explore balconies, nooks, a sun-drenched greenspace and soaring walls filled with a true rejuvenation of the art spirit. Uncover the humble beginnings of the untrained artisan, fine collectible gifts, the colorful recycled canvases of contemporary folk art and brassy vibrations of the outsider style. Imbibe the delight of blooming plants, indoor foliage, an organic coffee and tea bar and a unique feedmill style building.
