Artist's Description

Once located at the corner of Oak and Kansas streets, the Bierstube was a local landmark in historic downtown Frankfort, IL for over 25 years. It was destroyed by fire on August 8, 2001. Owned by Karl Ditchler (Chef Klaus) and his family, the Bierstube was a festive restaurant crowed with people sharing good times. It was one of my favorite places to enjoy with family and friends. I decided to paint "Die Bierstube" as a way of preserving and celebrating its legacy. My focus on details serves as a tribute to the artisans who carved and painted the front entryway doors, the nostalgic shingle-styled signs and the family crests that altogether made the 100-year-old building charming and inviting.
