Emerging Talent VIII 2022
Show dates: Saturdays & Sundays,
May 28-29, June 4-5, June 11-12, 11AM – 3PM
A reception will follow the noon Wittenberg Community Days Parade at the WOWSPACE.
After two years of Covid setbacks and challenges we are looking forward to returning to our usual 3 weekends of showcasing the Witt-Birn Districts K-12 masterpieces,
with their enjoyable and entertaining artistic creations. Throughout the school year the district’s three art teachers, Naomi Engleke, Diana Wendler, and Keven Brunett, set aside their
students’ art projects which they have chosen to be on exhibit during this show. It is an honor to each of these students to have their work selected and showcased, and certainly deserving of
being recognized for their efforts. This show is worthwhile and valuable as it gives this needed recognition to the arts and the students.
Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre! March 25th & 26th and April 1st & 2nd. Meal was catered by 2510 Restaurant (glazed pork tenderloin or baked cod). Tickets were $45, available at Hanke's

Art of the Quilter VIII – Quilty as Charged
4 Awards were presented at the Art of the Quilter VIII – Quilty as Charged quilt show at the Walls of Wittenberg
WOWSPACE. 43 quilts were displayed at the show which ran for 3 weekends. The show included the quilted creations of 26 different quilters from 18 different cities as well as 2 antique
Grandmother’s Flower Garden creations.
Rose Grych of Wausau, WI received the Award of Excellence for her quilt titled My Fresh Cut Flower Garden. Rose’s quilt was a colorful wool applique embellished
with intricate embroidery. This award recognizes the high level of technical skill and difficulty employed by the quilter. The recipient is chosen by local quilt club quilters with
entries in the show.
3 Peoples’ Choice awards were presented based on votes cast by visitors to the show who were asked to vote for the quilt or quilts which appealed to them the most.
Each visitor was allowed 3 votes.
1st place went to Marge Beine of Hatley, WI for Purple Elephant. Marge used paper piecing techniques to create the mosaic effect.
2nd place was awarded to Victoria Reigel of Birnamwood, WI for Friendship, Memories and Hope (Camp Toad). Her quilt commemorates the life and love of her
husband and gives praise to how women often bless the lives of other women.
3rd place was awarded to Barb Boettcher of Crivitz, WI for My Quilt of Life. Incorporating a sampler of colorful pieced blocks of varying sizes
appliqued with silhouettes in black, her quilt commemorates many significant events that have made up her life thus far.
