Third Street in downtown La Crosse, WI.  Please note that BOTH galleries will be open for the reception simultaneously, 6pm to 9pm, so visit both and have twice the fun!

This event is organized by the La Crosse Arts Initiative.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of artworks goes to benefit the La Crosse Arts Initiative and their future projects supporting and building the visual arts in our community.

This year's exhibition will run from 9/27 to 10/18 at both gallery locations.  If you can't make the opening be sure to stop in while the show is still up.  It's a great chance to see work by our local artists!

Come on out and show your support for the La Crosse Arts Initiative and the visual arts in our community.  We look forward to seeing you again!

A big thanks to this year's major sponsors, Designing Jewelers, J Galleries Interior Design Studio and the Mark and Sue Halter Trust.   Your generous support helped make this event  possible.
