These eleven artist are representing the coordinators of over twenty local WRAP exhibits and workshops, as artists who not only pursue their own creative endeavors, but work hard to provide opportunities for others as well. If you are going to be in Madison, please put stopping by the Steenbock Gallery in your 'must do list' and help us celebrate the art of these accomplished art leaders and artists.
Remember to join us at the Steenbock Gallery weekdays May-July 12th and check out the wonderful artworks our Wisconsin Regional Art Program coordinators and volunteers from around the state have included in this dynamic art exhibition.
And especially plan to join us July 12th from 1:00 - 3:00 when you will have a chance to see the art AND meet some of the artists.
WRAP exhibitions offer non-professional lay artists from across the state of Wisconsin. WRAP defines 'non-professional' as those artists who do not make the majority of their income from their art. Both beginners and highly accomplished artists are welcome to participate in these self-juried exhibitions.
Each exhibit and workshop is coordinated locally, most with the support of a local art organization. You can find information about which WRAP exhibits are closest to you here.
In 2015 the State Conference and Exhibition will be back in Madison.
Your art organization or art club can host an Art Exhibit and Workshop too. We plan early so contact us as soon as possible, if you'd like to sponsor a workshop next year. We're looking for new places now to help us celebrate the 75th anniversary of WRAP.
The Steenbock Gallery is in the lobby of the building that houses the Administrative Offices of the Wisconsin Academy. Thank you to WASAL, and thank you to all of our wonderful WRAP artists for sharing their creative work and inviting us to enjoy it.
WRAA publications include Contour Notes, WRAP State Exhibit color catalog, WRAP Timely Treasures calendar, and brochures. In addition, WRAA also kicks off the WRAP State Exhibit and Conference weekend by hosting Evening with the Arts artists’ reception showcasing WRAP State Award art, WRAA sponsored Statewide Teen Art Mentor Program and WRAA Tiny Treasures Exhibit, Competition and Sale. WRAA also solicits and distributes over $4500 in awards given out at the annual award ceremony, which follows the annual WRAP State Exhibit Conference.
Consider joining the WRAA and participating in one of our local WRAP Exhibits and Workshops. We would love to see you there and at our state day and exhibition in Wausau this summer. Watch for more information as both draw nearer.
Remember, look for the sign outside the Wisconsin Academy of Science Arts and Letters offices at 1922 University Avenue to indicate 'The Gallery Is Open'!
