Wolf River Art League seeks entries
The Wolf River Art League extends an open invitation to artists of all ages from all areas to register for the Mid Winter Art Show, held on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 13 and 14 at the New London Area High School.
A long-time collaboration of the Wolf River Art League and New London High School Art Department, the Winter Arts Festival takes place in and around a huge commons area that is filled with natural light. The art show is featured in the commons, surrounded by live art demonstrations in the gymnasium, dance and musical performances in the auditorium, and a fine arts and crafts sale in the gymnasium.
Artists can enter as many as six works of art in any media such as, but not limited to, oil, acrylic, pastel, encaustics, fiber, ceramic, and wood. Two-dimensional, three-dimensional and photography categories are distinguished by the league for judging.
The 2016 art show judge is Ann E. Lawton.
Lawton is an artist, art therapist, and art educator. She received her bachelor’s of science in broad area art with a minor in psychology from UW-River Falls and her masters in art therapy from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee.
She teaches fulltime in the art department at UW-River Falls and conducts art therapy with a variety of populations in the St. Croix Valley of Wisconsin. Her studio is in River Falls.
A Saturday morning critique of the winners in professional, non-professional and student categories opens the Mid-Winter Art Show. This is open to the public.
The art show is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. On-site food fundraisers that support high school clubs and the art league include a soup and chili luncheon, dessert booths and various crafts.
Early art registration insures the artist receives recognition in the art show’s printed program. To obtain an entry form for the art show, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Roxie at 920-982-2792. The final deadline for art submissions is Feb. 6.
