Starved for spring? Antigo Visual Artists has just the menu.

The artists group, known as AVA, will unveil its “Starved for Spring” show Saturday with a wine and cheese reception at the AVA Gallery, located in the Langlade County Historical Museum.

The event will run from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited. There is no charge. White and red wines will be available courtesy of bbJacks, along with bottled water. Reception visitors will also have the opportunity to sample a select variety of award-winning Sartori cheeses, as well as cast their vote for their favorite piece of art.

AVA artists will also be voting on their favorite piece. Both the People's Choice and Artist Choice winners will receive a ribbon and cash award. Ribbons and cash awards will be awarded for first, second, and third place. Honorable mention ribbons may be awarded at the discretion of the judge.

For the first time, AVA's Starved for Spring show features the work of Antigo High School student artists Ashley Kammer and Jordan Miinch. Kammer has two show entries and Miinch has three.

"I have never been so excited to see a show open," AVA Director of Student Services Danna Gabriel commented. " We have been working over the past 12 months, actively recruiting young Antigo area artists and our efforts are now paying off. I am very proud of these two young artists."

Kammer and Miinch decided to enter the spring show following a framing tutorial sponsored by AVA. In addition, a dozen area artists, most of them members of AVA, will have their art featured.

The show will be judged by Wausau artist Terry Gunderson-Shulta. In 1980 she received a bachelor's degree in art from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. She worked for Congressman David Obey for 25 years before retiring from government work. In 2012 she began creating textile art and transitioned to paper in 2014. Both mediums featured "recognizable" subjects.

"But, she emphasized, "I was always drawn to abstract art more than realism and eventually found the courage to work from my head. Now, I have no specific image in mind when I begin a piece so I work intuitively. The toughest part is knowing when a piece is complete."
