Summer is here with a bang!

ArtsBuild presents three IMMEDIATE exhibition opportunities! No fees, sales are possible.

“Phantom Art Galleries”

ArtsBuild received a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board to place art in empty storefronts in our region. Currently we have downtown locations in Mineral Point and Platteville that need new work. We can use 2D &/or 3D work. I have many picture frames available, as well as display fixtures. Interested in showing your work this way? Contact Carole!

ALSO - we are looking for additional store windows! Let me know if you have leads.

Community Connections Free Clinic in Dodgeville is outfitted everywhere –waiting room, hallways, offices, exam rooms - with the hardware for hanging 2D work. We’ve been providing artwork there for a couple years, and it’s time to find more artists! I have frames for this project too. Interested in showing your work at a medical/dental clinic that gets a lot of traffic? Contact Carole!

State Capitol offices in Madison. Dale Schultz and Howard Marklein have agreed to show work from their constituents. (I’m working on Travis Tranel too!) Each of these offices is best for free-standing sculpture of modest size, or framed work that can stand on a table top. ArtsBuild has been placing art in the Capitol offices for over two years, and it’s a very popular program with both the legislators and their visitors! Interested in showing your work at the State Capitol? Contact Carole!


Other opportunity: Cheesefest – Shullsburg, WI

The Shullsburg Community Development Corporation is accepting applications for artists and crafters for the 13th annual Cheesefest on Saturday, October 1st from 9:00am – 3:00pm. The fee is $25.00 for a 10’x10’ space. Vendors need to provide their own displays, chairs and outdoor protection. Questions? Phone Jeff @608-965-3782 or 608-965-3459 or Cheryl at 608-965-4579.

ArtsBuild is now on Facebook!
