Fall Art Show

WOW presented – 5 Photographers, “Life Through the Lens”


“Life Through the Lens” was presented by five photographers who were invited to participate in WOW’s annual fall show.  Those sharing their amazing talents were Roger Bloemers of Wausau, Brian Gutheinz of Bowler, Hans Schmitt of Birnamwood, Tom Walchesky of Howards Grove, and Brent Zeinert of Wittenberg.  


Contrary to what many people think, photography is much more than snapping a pretty picture, and this was certainly proven by the 50 pictures that were entered for this juried show.  Each photographer brought 10 of his best for the exhibit in the WOWSPACE gallery.  The judge for the show was Curt Knoke who is a retired professional photographer.


Roger Bloemers won the Best of Show for his “Milkyway Over New Hope”; Hans Schmitt won the Award of Excellence for his, “Order & Chaos”; Tom Walchesky won an Honorable Mention for his “Friday Night Lights”; and Roger Bloemers won an Honorable Mention for his “A Walk in the Fog”.


All five photographers were present for the Grand Opening afternoon September 17th greeting guests and enjoying good photography conversation among themselves.  Refreshments were also served, compliments of Nueske Meats, Wagner Shell, and fresh apple cider from Kelly and Dan Kapitz.


Thank you to all who visited and supported WOW’s fall show, “Life Through the Lens”.


Continuing shows were Saturdays & Sundays, September 18th – October 2nd, 11 AM – 3 PM.

As in the past shows, the Witt-Birn District students put on another delightful show with over 100 pieces of art on display, from grades K – 12.  The art was chosen by the three district art teachers-Naomi Engleke, Diana Wendler, and Keven Brunett-over the course of the 2021-2022 school year, putting aside pieces chosen to be included in the spring show.


The show extended for 3 weekends with the culminating weekend part of the Wittenberg Community Days, with over a dozen of the participants riding on the WOW wagon in the parade.  A reception at the WOWSPACE Gallery was enjoyed by all, supporting, congratulating, and picture taking of the lucky participants!   The creativity and talent of these students are always refreshing and enjoyed by all who visit!

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.
