Had an enjoyable experience chatting with owner, Fred, and browsing the wonderful art works. He and his talented family painted, reproduced, and framed most of the gallery art work.

There is a large selection of Door County in all seasons and wildlife of the area. This is their main focus. They do have other themes but not as much of them. Well worth your time to stop and stroll around the gallery.

Stopped in after seeing on of the prints displayed down by the road. The gallery was really my type of art. It is a lot of Door County subjects, particularly lighthouses and lake scenes. Talked to Fred while we looked around. A lot of the work here is Fred's own work. We ended up buying a few things with our... More

Water Street Gallery has recently undergone a transformation. But the art and the local knowledge of local artist Frederic Bridenhagen is wonderful. Fred clearly never met a stranger, and his incredible selection of reasonably-priced, beautifully matted and framed works of myriad local artists of various styles, makes Water Street Gallery a must-stop if you have any thought of purchasing local...

I enjoyed looking around Fred's gallery. There were many things that caught my eye. I ended up purchasing a piece that was made with a photograph his son took. There's a ton of talent in the Bridenhagen family. Fred was very nice and we'll definitely visit again.

We enjoy visiting Water Street Gallery. It has many art prints by local artists along with notecards by artists. Fred Bridenhagen, the owner, is very personable and usually has a piece of his art work on an easel. We have purchased many framed prints to display in our home.

The essence of Door County as seen through the eyes of a native son. We stop almost every time we are in the County just to see what's new and chat with Fred. More often than not we find the perfect piece that we didn't know we were looking for. 😉 Love this gallery!

We had a chance to get out in Spring when Door County was not so busy. Fred took the time to personally welcome us to his gallery and share some of his stories with us.
