"Thought is image"
By Gene Wesley & R. Christian Egger
As we head into spring, Chestnut Center for the Arts is excited to welcome artists R. Christian Egger and Gene Wesley with their exhibit: “Thought Is Image,” featuring an incredible mixture of photography, ceramic, and painting pieces from both artists! The "Thought Is Image" exhibit will be running from March 7th to April 20th. Join us in welcoming them and meet the faces behind the art at their artist reception on Thursday, March 9th at 6 PM. Come in during our normal business hours or contact us to set up a time to come see this fantastic exhibit!

We're currently collecting donated art --now!
Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" sale takes your "retired" art that you've retrieved from the basement or back of the closet, and gives it new life, in someone else's home!
As we travel through life, many types of art touch us in special ways. Gifts of art are given with love. A special moment is remembered with an art piece. Someone creates a piece of art that we value. These all become a part of our home decor and valued treasures.
There is a time however, when we move on, and these things hold a different meaning, but their value does not diminish. Chestnut Center understands and wants to provide a way for you to give these valued art pieces a new life and a new home.
Retired art might take the shape of a piece of wall art, an antique quilt, a piece of lace or jewelry, a sculpture or other three-dimensional pieces, or maybe autographed sheet music.
Consider donating your once-loved art to Chestnut Center. Funds raised are used for educational programming in the arts.
Donated art can be dropped off at the Chestnut Center during regular office hours (Tuesday through Thursday, 10 am-3pm) or by appointment (715-389-8999).
Let us put your retired treasures back to work!
Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" Sale will be held at least once annually. Watch for it! Sign up for our email blasts to be notified. Also, a selection of this art is on display--and for sale-- in the Terrazzo Room year-round.
