My Favorite Things
 The construction at the Barn is complete so we are able to host our themed, invitational exhibits again!  The theme of the current exhibit is My Favorite Things.  We received twenty-three works by fourteen artists.  The exhibit is wonderful with a wide range of "favorite things!"  Be sure to stop by the Barn to view the show and vote for your favorite piece.  The winning artist receives $100.  The exhibit is up until July 5, 2016.

Picturing the Prairie

  Sibley State Park is the place to be June 25, 2016.  John White, photographer and expert on the prairie will lead workshops throughout the day where he will discuss the status of the prairie today and give tips on photographing the prairie.  If you don't have a camera, Sibley will loan you one of theirs.  Bring your camera back and they will make one print for you.  We're hoping you'll leave that print at the park because John White is our featured artist at the WEAC gallery in July.  We will use the pictures taken on June 25 to make a collage that will be up during his exhibit. 

  So come the park June 25, meet John and get some tips on photography!
