Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart


New ECRAC Gallery Named for Janet Carson

Emily Anderson

The Janet Carson.
The Janet Carson.

The art gallery in the Eau Claire Regional Arts Center finally got its own brand spanking new name! Now called the Janet Carson Gallery, the well-established space for Eau Claire’s art viewing pleasure has its own entrance on Eau Claire Street and a new renovated look complete with expanded retail and exhibition space. The gallery was named after Janet Carson (if you couldn’t figure that out yourself). A former professor in the Art and Design Department at UW-Eau Claire, Carson is also a nationally acclaimed artist. Her art donations helped get the ball rolling toward ECRAC renovations, making her the perfect choice for the gallery’s namesake. A Grand Opening ceremony was held on January 28 with the gallery featuring work from artists Laurie Bieze and Jane Evershed.
