Rhinelander’s ArtStart gallery is open with its first exhibit of the year.

Entitled “WisconsinCity” the show features the work of contemporary artists from Milwaukee, Madison and the Fox Valley. 

ArtStart President Ken Juon says it came out of a curiosity to see what emerging Wisconsin artists were up to. 

“We were interested in it just to see who was doing what.  We wanted to put together a survey – that’s what we like to do here, is put together group shows, surveys to give a broad range of art experiences to the viewer that comes in.”
