Van Wert Respresents Exhibit - Call for Entry!
February 9 – March 4

Art Representing Van Wert

The Wassenberg Art Center has been a staple of Van Wert for many years, since 1954 to be exact. Long before even this, a solid vein of art has run through the community. In this curated exhibit, we want to see Van Wert represented in art. Do you own an old painting, drawing, or sculpture of a scene, building
or event that took place in Van Wert? Do you currently render scenes of Van Wert in the above media?
If so, this exhibit is for you! Click below to access the complete rules, entry forms and labels. Art entries will be accepted Friday, Saturday & Sunday, February 2, 3, and 4, 2018, 1 – 5 p.m. Entry is open to all artists 18 and older. A non-refundable fee of $15 for Wassenberg Art Center members or $20 for non-members entitles the artist to submit up to three entries. We'll be having an opening party following the Van Wert Main Street Chocolate Walk, serving homemade soups, freshly baked bread, and featuring live music on our baby grand by Weston Thompson. 

Our Mission

The Wassenberg Art Center endeavors to be a catalyst for creative expressions and the study of visual art and architecture. Through an open, diverse approach, our programs are offered as an outreach to inspire interaction in the arts for all area cultures and communities.
