"Eight Counties" at the Kohler Art Center

This coming Sunday is the opening for "Eight Counties" at the Kohler Art Center. The award presentation and talk are at 1:00 pm. I am honored and pleased to have two images included in this exhibit. If you are looking for something to do join me for the opening.

The following is the description of the exhibition taken from the John Michael Kohler Art Center website:

This spring, the Arts Center will host Eight Counties, an extensive juried exhibition celebrating the breadth of art created in east-central Wisconsin. Showcasing works in all media including photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, woodworking, metals, textiles, glass, and mixed media, this exhibition is the twelfth in a series of surveys devoted to highlighting the talents of our region’s exciting artists.

We invited submissions from all practicing artists—professional and by avocation—in the eight county area of Brown, Calumet, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Sheboygan, and Washington counties, and this year we were delighted by an unprecedented number of strong entries. We received submissions from over 520 artists offering more than 1,550 individual works of art!

Held in the Arts Center’s Collections & Community Galleries, the juried exhibition will present the final selection of nearly 150 works by over 100 regional artists. Eight Counties will open to the public January 24th, 2010 with an opening celebration and award ceremony from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please join us in celebrating our region’s remarkable artists.

I'm crossing my fingers that I can be there. I need a miracle, actually. You never know. Those do exist, right?

This isn't the Book Passages opening Frieda this is a different exhibit but it does have two of my book passage images in it. It would be great if you and David could make the Book Passages opening on February 12th.
