Art Discovery Day

October 28, 2017 10:00 am - 04:00 pm

Aldo Leopold Legacy Center
Baraboo, WI

My name is Ian Cotten and I am the Education and Outreach Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation. I am heading up Art Discovery Day planning for the Leopold Foundation this year and am beginning to prepare for this October’s event. The first step is to recruit artists/artisans to come and be a part of this special event. I am reaching out to you all because you surely have access to much more of the Madison artist community than I do, and I was hoping that you could just put this information out there to your members/community and invite them to apply to be a participant.

Art Day will take place Saturday, October 28th, from 10:00am-4:00pm at the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center in Baraboo, WI. For a little context: every fall, we end our visitation season with our Art Discovery Day at the Leopold Center. Each year we select a group of regional artists and artisans whose work is inspired by the land ethic, nature, and the natural world. Visitors can discover new art, see demonstrations, talk with artists, and purchase your works should you decide to bring any to sell. This is a family friendly event that is in its 10th year, and it is free and open for the public to attend.

Click here for the application to be a part of this year’s event. If you could forward them to those you think may be interested that would be great. Those interested can either print it off, fill it out, and mail in a hard copy, or complete the form electronically and submit it to me via email; instructions for submission are included in the application. Applications are due September 1st, and selections will be made by September 14th. Thanks in advance for your help in spreading the word about this event. Thanks again, feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have!

Cheers,

Ian Cotten, Education and Outreach Fellow

Gallery Opportunity

Dear MAG members. This is good show space in an unusual location. It is a nice, clean, modern facility with a Walker Hanging System and room for about 15 conventional 2D pieces. There is also an enclosed cabinet which might be available for a few 3D pieces. They prefer two month shows and are available from now to October and then again from February 2016 on. The club has 75 members and hosts occasional tournaments. Please contact Mr. Bourne directly.

Hi, My name is Damon Bourne and I'm the owner of Madison Squash Workshop, a squash club here in Madison. Besides being a squash facility, one of the things I've done since we've opened is have local artists use the space to hang, and possibly sell work. Generally, artists hang work for 2 months at a stretch and I have my members deal directly with the artists if they are interested in purchasing a piece. I do not take commission on sales. I'm wondering if any artists from the Madison Art Guild might be interested in hanging?

Thank you,

Damon Bourne
