    There is no charge to the public for this exhibit, but donations are appreciated to help keep this exceptional gallery space available to the community. 

We apologize but due to weather travel concerns, the Heyde Center was closed on Sun April 15th. The demonstration has been rescheduled to Thursday, April 19 at 1:00 p.m. 

The Chippewa Herald along with the Chippewa Valley Cultural Association/Heyde Center for the Arts will again be hosting the 54th Annual Spring Art show. Nearly 100 local artists - old and young, novice and experienced - submit their two and three-dimensional art works each year to this community exhibit. The exhibition includes original paintings, sculptures, photos, stained glass, mosaics, ceramics, other creative art forms, demonstrations, and cash awards. The judges for this year's awards are: Mackenzie Kavanagh a graphic artist with Volume One and Rose Dolan-Neill, the director of the Janet Carson Gallery, and Erin Brunke with The Chippewa Herald

This year we would like to recognize two people we lost this past year who were involved in this show from the very beginning. Art work from Ellen Devine and Pat Ahneman will be on display throughout the exhibit. In addition, the family of Ellen Devine would like to welcome friends to celebrate Ellen's life and contributions to the Chippewa Valley art world from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 8th (artist reception). 

There will be two demonstrations during the art show: Alexandria Mooney Jones, who will demonstrate the painting technique called liquid acrylics at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday April 8th; and Jean Atter Chwala who will be demonstrating pine needle basket weaving on Sunday, April 15th at 1:00 p.m.
