Portage County art show attracts hundreds


Central Wisconsin artists got to show off their work at a Portage County art show.

Event leaders say throughout the weekend about a thousand people visited the Rising Star Mill 27th Annual Art Show and Sale in Nelsonville.

More than 30 artists displayed their work, which ranged from blown glass, woodwork to photography.

"We have some professionals and we have some hobby artists who do very good work," said Marianne Walker, event organizer. "We're always trying to upgrade, but we want to keep it open to everybody."

The show is a part of a fundraiser for the mill.

Event leaders say proceeds from concessions and booth rentals for the artists will go toward renovations and landscaping.
