The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI has this annual juried exhibition. I believe that part of the show travels the country. The works at this show ranged in techniques: pyrography - the burning on paper or wood to create the image, watercolor, oil, acrylic, gouache, printmaking - woodcut, linocuts, serigraphy, sculpture and a book collage.
It was inspiring on many levels for me, not just seeing this great collection of work but making me want to work harder. Artists have a different kind of "Bucket List", their lists often include shows that they aspire to be included. This is on my bucket list!
