Artist group donates to museum project
space
Antigo Visual Arts was brimming with pride Saturday as it presented a $7,280.87 check to the Langlade County Historical Society for its building renovation project, which will provide substantial improvements in the gallery program.

Fran Brown presented a check to Mary Kay Wolf, curator of the historical society's museum, at the reception for the opening of the fall art show season.

The money was raised by an art auction AVA held this past August featuring the art of Frank Vavruska, which was donated to Visual Arts several years ago.

The art auction was the brain child of Brown, who, with the help of her auction committee, artists Rosemary Bauknecht, Danna Gabriel and Camille Converse-Smith, organized the project and saw it through to fruition.

The reception was being held for the fall exhibit, which featured the works of 18 artists, who entered 70 pieces of original pieces in the fall show, "Autumn's Blessings."

Vicki Eldridge's sculpture titled "Big Chief" took first place at a reception in the gallery. The sculpture is just shy of being 3-feet tall. Second place honors went to Wausau artist Patrick Plunkett for his fabricated metal sculpture titled "Coexist," while third place honors went to Greg Koeppel for his oil on plywood titled Fall Harvest."

Judge Stephen Loftus, from Wausau, also awarded three honorable mention ribbons. These went to Laurie McConnell for her watercolor, "Sunny Side of Life." Jim Martinsen for his photograph titled "Greg's Creation." In addition to his third place honors, Koeppel also was awarded the third honorable mention ribbon for his oil on canvas titled "Thicket #1."

It was Koeppel night at the AVA gallery as Koeppel's oil on canvas titled "After the Hunt" took the Artist's Choice ribbon. Student artist Ashley Kammer won the People's Choice award with her painting titled "Spaced Out."
