Wassenberg breaks show entry record

We have broken yet another record! We received 208 entries in our 28th annual Artist Members’ Exhibit and Sale! Wow. That is 56 more pieces than last year and that is 50 more items you can shop from! Thank you to all the area artists who contributed. It’s going to be a great show and sale.

Here’s a sneak peak at some of the items that will be available for purchase at the Wassenberg Art Center, beginning November 18. “Pear” by Anita Lehman.
