‘Young at HeART’ exhibit on display at Monroe Arts Center beginning Dec. 13
MONROE, Wis. — The visual arts scene continues to thrive at the Monroe Arts Center (MAC). From Dec. 13 through Jan. 24, the new exhibit, titled Young at HeART, by the Driftless Area Artists (DAA) group, will be on display at the MAC Frehner Gallery. Seventeen artists from this group have each created artwork based on their personal interpretation of what it means to be “Young at HeART.”
Participating artists include Sarah Aslakson (Argyle), Jeanne Ausmus (Monroe), Elsie Berget (Blanchardville), Peg Cullen (Blanchardville), Kathleen D’Angelo (Monticello), Tony D’Angelo (Monticello), Roger Dorneden (Apple River, Ill.), Tina Duemler (Monroe), Alan Gibbs (Monroe), Susan Ivanko (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.), Kathy King (Monroe), Jane Kraeuche Olson (New Glarus), MT Main (Monroe), Joan Stackpole (Monroe), Helen Stauffer (Monroe), Jeanne Stietz (Gratiot) and Terry Tackett (Monroe). This exhibit includes works executed in watercolor, acrylic, gouache, oil painting, photography, colored pencil, jewelry, gourds and various other multi-media.
Organized in 2002, the DAA group was created by visual artists in Green County looking for a way to connect with one another to discuss and encourage art in our area. Their name is inspired by the “driftless” glacial areas of southern Wisconsin and their beautiful landscape settings. DAA welcomes new members and continually looks for innovative ways to expand and support the visual art opportunities in Green County and the surrounding area. The group meets from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month at the Monroe Arts Center.
An opening reception is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 13, in Frehner Gallery. A brief artist gallery talk will begin at 5:30 p.m. This exhibit and opening reception are free and open to the public.
