Several of our members recently car-pooled to the Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) in West Bend. We participated in the S.V. Medaris printmaking workshop, walked across the Milwaukee River for lunch, viewed the Wisconsin Artists Biennial and Sue Medaris' Strange Breeds exhibits, and listened to an interesting panel discussion with Biennial award winners talking about their work, the Wisconsin art scene, and much more. It was a beautiful day and we had great fun!
