Green Bay Art Colony: A Legacy of Creative Excellence Opening at the Neville
Green Bay, WI---January 8, 2016---In 1915, nine women began working together in a group known as the Green Bay Art Club (it turned into the Green Bay Art Colony in 1928).  During the same year, the group organized its first exhibition in the basement of the former Green Bay Public Library.  This exhibition of shawls, artworks, and historic memorabilia was the birth of the Neville Public Museum. 
Today, the Green Bay Art Colony is an active organization of artists from the area.  It includes many professional artists with significant reputations as well as talented emerging artists.  This year’s juror, Terry Stanley, is a professional artist and instructor.  Stanley chose the artworks included in this exhibition from entries submitted by the Art Colony’s membership. 
A Legacy of Creative Excellence opens to the public on Saturday, January 16.
