The Challenge

Create a piece of artwork that exemplifies your vision of the theme.  Do you think of the trophy fish that sang the refrain to "Take me to the River?" Do you live close to the Baraboo River, the Wisconsin River, or any one of the other streams we have in Sauk County?  What kind of piece are you thinking about will you strut your stuff, try a new medium or a new style. Whatever you do, have fun with the theme! Or be serious if you like, Sauk County has had quite the summer and fall, with most of our rivers over full.

Visiting the Show

This year's show will hang in the Con Amici Wine Bar on 3rd St. in Downtown Baraboo. The show can be viewed at anytime the shop is open. There will be an open house on Saturday, February 9th in the evening. Members of the SCAA will provide hor d'oeuvres. Beverages should be purchased from Con Amici. 

People's Choice

As has been our practice the last couple years, we'll choose "winners" based upon our visitor's responses. The public is encouraged to vote for their favorite pieces. visitors may vote between February 9th and February 22nd.
