ART EXHIBITS AND INFORMATION OUR DAA MEMBERS SHOULD KNOW
BAILEY'S RUN VINEYARD HOSTING CHUCK BAUER'S ART
In his own words, DAA member, Chuck Bauer says, "In case you haven't seen enough of my work -smile- you now have the opportunity to see three dozen pieces all in one place and all at one once." Chuck uses the 'built environment' as the subject of his oil paintings. Some of his work is also in watercolor. One thing is for sure, his use of color will definitely make you smile. His art is on display during thre month of August.
Sarah Aslakson speaks at the opening of her retospective show now hanging on four floors of the Monroe Clinic/Hospital building. Sarah's unique style in her use of vibrant watercolors was a hit with folks at the May 16th opening. Over 50 paintings are included in this show titled "Life Stages" and represent her life and travels. The show hangs until August 9th, 2019.
This show will run June 21, 2019 - August 16, 22019 at the Monroe Arts Center. The opening reception to meet Sarah and view her multitude of paintings will be held on Friday, June 21st, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Sarah will do a gallery talk at 5:30 pm.

Green County Development Corporation(GCDC) opened the Enterprise Center in the north section of Blackhawk Technical College in Monroe. This is a location for beginning and established businesses to come to receive free assistance with their business needs. We are proud to partner with them for highlighting local artists in their public spaces.
DAA artists have a very flexible rotation of art pieces with artists’ names and prices noted for pieces to be purchased. Thank you, BTC Dean, Matt Urban, for allowing Driftless Area Artists to display art on your building walls.
