Green Bay, WI—October 29, 2021— The 76th Art Annual exhibit is an all-media, juried exhibition of current artworks produced by artists living in the counties of Northeastern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A total of 40 artworks by 39 artists were chosen by juror George Williams, Professor of Visual Arts at Beloit College.
This juried art exhibition began in 1942 during the height of World War II. For three-quarters of a century, many of this region’s most celebrated and talented artists have exhibited their work as part of this Green Bay tradition.
“This exhibition highlights the importance and power of visual languages that can be interpreted and reinterpreted. For everything that needs to be said there is a language, and the languages of these artists are eclectic and relevant for the times in which we live. The artists have spoken from their own unique voices utilizing various mediums, subject matter, and cultures.” – George Williams
