69 years and still counting!
In Cedarburg, where the visual arts are known to play such an important role, the Annual Ozaukee County Art Show is about to celebrate its 69th year. The show, which has been delighting residents and visitors since 1947, opens on March 13 at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, across the street from the Washington House Inn. More than 200 works of original art by artists – both professionals and amateurs – will be featured in the show. There is one condition that must be adhered to … artists have to either live, teach or work in Ozaukee County. Also included are original works by high school students from all over the county.
Running concurrently, there will be a Gallery of Student Art on display in the center’s East Gallery, featuring 300 original pieces of art by students attending Cedarburg public and parochial elementary schools, as well as Webster Transitional School.
In celebration of these two important exhibits, artists, students and their families as well as members of the public are invited to attend a free opening reception from 1-4pm on the first day of the show, which falls on Sunday, March 13. During the event, refreshments will be served, and a professional Wisconsin artist will conduct a gallery tour.
Much of the featured art is available for purchase including, of course, any works by local artists in the Cedarburg Artists Guilds’ Main Street Gallery, located toward the rear of the center. The art show will be open to the public through April 10.
Relax at our historic Cedarburg bed and breakfast and walk right across the street to enjoy a weekend immersed in the beauty of these pieces.
