Art Show

Posted on: July 15th, 2020 by

The OCHS started an Art Show in 2004 to showcase artists who had some connection to Oconto County.  Some were current residents, some had lived here but didn’t any longer, and some were from the county’s past.  The art encompassed a variety of genres and was displayed throughout the House and Annex.

In 2013 an exhibit of wedding attire from the Museum’s collection was presented in the Home so the Art Show was kept to the Annex.  In 2015 the new Carriage House and meeting room was built.  The art continued to be in the Annex and Main Street exhibits but it was clear that the new configuration was awkward.  So, in 2017 the Art Show was displayed exclusively in the meeting room.

With social distance measures necessary in 2020, OCHS decided to forgo the Art Show but instead has pictures of the past art on the website.  This, of course, is not the best platform to show them but it is a way to see them again or perhaps for the first time.  Check out the links below to see the art of Oconto County’s talented artists.
