The Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community opened its third annual juried and judged In. Art Show to a standing room only crowd August 23.  There were 67 artists who made it through preliminary judging to see their works on exhibit at the show.  Of these works three professional artist-judges selected four judges’ choice winners, carrying a prize of $500 each.  Also, four artistic excellence awards came with $200 in prize awards-- and four artistic merit award winners who receive $100 a piece.  

Members of the general public got cards on which to mark their “Peoples’ Choice” favorites.  Peoples’ Choice prizes are $300, $200 and $100
The show runs to September 15.

Entries came from artists age 16 to 60-plus-years old.  

You will see three dimensional pieces, digital photography, oil, pencil and multimedia drawings and paintings, woodworking, glass art pieces and even an intricately carved gourd.

The Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community story is nothing short of impressive. The group only came together five years ago and already has a beautiful former church space housing its activities.  The mission for the organization is to be a place where art is championed, where mentors can be found, where artwork can be enjoyed and to benefit the Wyoming area as a place that supports the arts and the arts support it.

During the city celebration Stagecoach Days in September, WACAC will host a booth for kids to use a free canvas to make a painting. Last year over 500 children participated.

 The In. Art Show is at the Hallberg Center for the Arts, 5521 East Viking Boulevard in Wyoming, a couple blocks east of the Cornerstone Restaurant and Bar.  Gallery hours are closed Sunday and Monday.  Tuesday through Friday, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday noon to 4 p.m.  The admission to the center is free. You can donate to the organization by becoming a member. WACAC is also part of the North American Reciprocal Museum Association. A $100 contribution grants you admission to the Walker Art Center, Mpls. Institute of Arts and 100 other locations in North America.  
The group holds classes for a fee,  and open music workshops “Songwriters in the Round” occur frequently.
