Come see a taste of art by artists rarely brought together. Adjacent to Locavore is Homegrown: 2’ x 2’, a show literally for everyone. In the democratic spirit that anyone can be an artist, anyone who creates a work on a RAC provided 2’ x 2’ board will be included in the exhibition. With two concurrent exhibitions of local and regional artistic work, RAC continues to create an open and inclusive setting for the broad range of artworks created in the region. Jurors for Locavore are Kathleen Hawkes, Faculty, University of Wisconsin La Crosse and Andrew Nordin, Art Instructor, Ridgewater College.

ARTIST TALKS | DECEMBER 7, 2017 | 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Please join the Locavore artists for artist speed round talks.  We wanted to offer insight with the artists and their work for Locavore, but with an exhibition of this scope, we are doing it in a speed round, so each artist in the juried exhibition will have an opportunity to say a few words if they would like.  Artists will each have about five minutes to speak about their work.  Please stay for refreshments and questions after. Let us know you’re coming on the Facebook Event Page.
