FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The 105th Green Bay Art Colony Exhibition - The Legacy Continues Opening This Weekend 
Green Bay, WI—January 24, 2020— In September 1915, nine women began working together in a group known as the Green Bay Art Club (turned Green Bay Art Colony in 1927).  During the same year, the group organized its first exhibition at the former Kellogg 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. The title of this year’s annual Green Bay Art Colony exhibition, The Legacy Continues, reflects this 105-year-old tradition of cultivating the creative economy of the greater Green Bay area. Twenty-six artists reflect this legacy in their thirty-eight submitted works across multiple mediums. 
This year’s juror, Stephanie Trenchard, has worked as a professional artist for over 30 years. She works in a multitude of mediums including glass and oil painting.  Along with her husband, artist Jeremy Popelka, Trenchard has owned and operated a working glass studio and small gallery in Sturgeon Bay since 1997, while continuing to create and show work nationally.
