When was the last time you were in a room with 57 artists? If it’s been too long, then you’re in luck because the venerable ArtsWest annual exhibition at the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library is about to open. Now in its 34th year, the juried show gathers together examples of artistic excellence from a crowd of Wisconsin artists, juried this year by James Boyd Brent, associate professor in the College of Design at the University of Minnesota. Brent will be on hand at the opening to speak and to present awards to four of the exhibiting artists. The opening will be 7-8:30pm, Thursday, Feb. 28. The artists will be there to talk, so grab a chance to connect. The exhibition runs through April 5 and can be viewed during regular library hours.
