Art show

Sally Bowker, a Cornucopia artist who judged the CBAC show “Art Heals,” talks about one of her picks for an honorable mention award, a painting by Lois Ostenberg. The show will be on display through March at the Washburn Cultural Center.

Artists took a deep look inside this year to share their work in the Chequamegon Bay Arts Council spring show “Art Heals: The Healing Power of the Arts.” Some 34 artists shared more than 75 works in a wide range of mediums that spoke to them of healing.

Many of the works were created when the artists were going through times of physical or emotional healing. Others spoke to the intention of the work to promote healing, or expressed the artist's beliefs. The result is a compelling and profound exhibit on display through the end of March at the Washburn Cultural Center.
