EAGLE RIVER, Wis. - For the 41st year, Artarama River Walk Art Show and Sale will take place rain or shine on Saturday, July 20, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Riverside Park at 505 West Division St. in Eagle River.
Since its small beginnings in 1972, the show has grown tremendously in size and reputation, attracting thousands of visitors who come in anticipation to purchase unique treasures for their homes or to purchase as gifts for loved ones.
Each spring, the Artarama committee members sift through the applications, carefully screening through each one to bring attendees variety, quality and several new artists each year.
The six member volunteer Board of Directors works diligently from January on to make the show happen.
"Putting this show together takes monumental organizational skills amongst other talents," according to co-chair, Karen Kubacki. "Currently the group has been assigned such tasks as verifying that the porta-potties have been reserved, the printing of labels and nametags, and recruitment of more volunteers for day of show."
At this point, exhibitors have been chosen, judges have been named, musicians have been hired and food vendors selected.
Kubacki promises, "This show has always been great fun and this year will be no exception. We have some incredible artists attending. Of course, there are several of your old favorites returning, but plenty of new talent will wow this year's crowd as well."
