Sun Prairie's Pop-up WRAP entry forms due October 14th for October 31st Event at the Sun Prairie Public Library
This exhibit is open to all non-professional artists. (We define non-professional as artists who do not make their living at their art. Emerging and experienced artists with original artworks to share are welcome! Since this is a new WRAP, we do not have an estimate for the number of participants there will be. Participating artists may help the planning process by mailing their entry blank to arrive by the Oct. 14 deadline.
While WRAP fees are going up in 2016, the entry fee this fall is still $20. The entry blank can be downloaded below.

Here is how a Pop-UP Wrap works: Pop-up Exhibit & Workshop Schedule - October 31, 2015
- 9:00 am - library opens
- 9:00-9:30 am - participants bring in artwork (up to 2 pieces). Because of space limitations and because all judging will be completed during the morning presentation and the lunch break, it may be necessary to limit artists to 1 piece each if registration numbers are higher than expected. The fee will be the same either way.
- 9:30-10:00 am - exhibit set up and coffee. We will not be able to hang artwork on the walls, but will have tables available. Smaller pieces will work best and can be displayed on table top display easels. Some tables will be up against the wall, and pieces on these tables can be leaned against the wall. A floor easel will work best for larger pieces. Artists must provide their own easels.
- 10:00 am - noon - lecture/demonstration. Sun Prairie artist Gail McCoy will give the morning presentation/demonstration about her beautiful collage art made using treated magazine papers. You can see examples of her work at: http://www.gailmccoyart.com/about.php
- Participants may be able to make their own small collages or work on a group project during the morning, but we won’t be able to plan this part of the program until we know the number of workshop participants. If we have enough space for this, treated papers will be provided, and a list of additional supplies to bring will be sent to registered artists.
- Noon - 1:15 - lunch break
- 1:15 - 3:00 pm - posting of awards and critique by our juror, Black Earth watercolor artist Nancy Cox.
