Sculptor Barbara Westfall to jury the exhibit and present!
Barbara's website is well worth a visit to see the range of installations, relief works and drawings and sketches.
Annually each local WRAP brings in a professional artist to jury the exhibition and present a program of interest to the participants at the closing workshop. (All exhibiting artists are welcome to attend the closing workshop for free. Guests may attend for a $5.00 fee. )
The juror is charged with identifying which art submissions will be recognized with an Honorable Mention for effective creative expression, and which of the submissions woll be recognized with a State Award. State Awards come with an invitation to the recipient to exhibit their artwork in the State exhibition which will open in August and include works from non-professional Wisconsin artists who are showing their art in the 24 WRAP exhibition which will take place in 2014-2015.
To learn more about WRAP statewide and the dates for other WRAP exhibits and workshops you can access the WRAP Website HERE.
