The Future of Fine Craft In Our Region!

Wisconsin Craft Presents


Dates and Location To Be Announced

Member Biennial Exhibition

March 24 - May 27, 2023  |  Center for Visual Arts, Wausau 


Wisconsin Craft is proud to announce our 2023 Members’ Biennial Exhibition “Regeneration”

The Center for the Visual Arts (CVA) is one of the leading cultural institutions in Central Wisconsin, with four professional gallery spaces featuring eighteen exhibits annually, a reputable school of art and a juried gallery shop.  

WI Craft is excited to have this opportunity for our members to show their work to a wider audience in the Central and Northern regions of WI.  

The theme of “Regeneration” was chosen to highlight the regeneration of the oldest arts organization in the state as WI Craft. Additionally, the changes in our members’ personal and professional lives over the last several years have led to renewed sense of purpose and/or new directions in many of their individual art practices. Artists are encouraged to submit artwork that reflects ways in which they have regenerated their work or practices since our last Biennial in 2020.

In order to participate you must be a Wisconsin Craft Member. Join WI Craft today!
