A few of my favorites will be presented. Kathryn Vaughn at Main Street Flowers. You may recognize this name from Madison Radio. She hosts a wonderful show on Magic 98 every Sunday morning. Several of her pieces are on display at Naeset Roe Inn. Greg Rodriguez at Yaraha River Co-Op, is an outstanding painter. He just finished a painting of Naeset Roe Inn for me that is hanging in the West Parlor. Mona Semerau is a wonderful silversmith that does such delicate work. Stop and see her at Vincenzo’s and have a glass of wine while you are there. So stop in and see some new art during the Main Street Stoughton Art Walk Friday, July 23rd 5-9pm. If you can’t make it, most of these artists are displayed at other times in these shops. Come and see them during a stay at Naeset Roe Inn. The inn is one block from Main Street and a great walk any day of the week.

When you buy original art, you participate in the process of promoting the arts, and help to sustain the quality lifestyle of small communities. You are not just buying a thing. You are buying an original work, made by an artist out of love. It’s not just an object…it carries the energy of the artist who created it.”

I still have some room available for the weekend if you want to come to the opening and aslo have some fun at Victorian Holiday Weekend, a celebration of our Victorian past and the holiday season. There is also a wonderful Holiday Art Show put on by the artists of 14 South Artists.This is is their 5th annual and it only gets bigger and better every year. It’s a Juried Art Show featuring over 30 fine artists from southern Wisconsin.
So don’t sit at home. Get out and enjoy the fresh snow on the ground. Maybe take a trolley ride or a wagon ride, do a little Christmas shopping in our unique stores, and see great art in Stoughton Wisconsin.
