Feeling like enjoying fine spring weather and getting your fine-art fix? Then make your way to the Valley Art Association’s Fine Art Faire April 25-26 in Chippewa Falls. The Fine Art Faire is one of the attractions at the Fifth Annual SpringFest, a seasonal celebration at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds April 24-26. A jury has selected fine art from more than 60 regional artists who work in a variety of two- and three-dimensional mediums, including painting, sculpture, jewelry, pottery, fiber, photography, glass, and more. In addition to browsing (and buying!) the art, patrons will be able to enjoy music (from Jerry Way, Dan and Jacey Lee, and others), wine tasting courtesy Infinity Beverages Winery & Distillery, and art demonstrations at the Fine Art Faire inside the fairgrounds’ Fine Art Building A. Beyond art, the weekend-long SpringFest – a fundraiser for the Chippewa Valley Rotary – will have a 5K run/walk, live music, a kubb championship, and fun for both kiddos (pony rides, inflatables, face painting) and adults (Leinenkugel’s beer tasting).
