FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Green Bay Art Colony Inspirations from the Neville Opening This Weekend
Green Bay, WI—February 6, 2018— In 1915, nine women began working together in a group known as the Green Bay Art Club (turned 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 artifacts 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 professional artists as well as talented emerging artists. This year’s juror, Shannon Piette, is a professional artist and Executive Director of the Richeson School of Art & Gallery. Piette chose the artworks included in this exhibition from entries submitted by the Art Colony’s membership.
The 103rd Art Colony Exhibition will be on display from February 10 through April 1, 2018.
