AVA's first ever art auction will be held August 16 at the NorthStar Lanes Banquet Center, 400 Prosser Place, Antigo. Viewing begins at 5:00 p.m., with the auction beginning at 6:00 p.m. Auctioneer is Jerry Chuilli.

The auction features nationally known local artists Frank Vavruska and George Falkenhagen as well as donated art from AVA's award-winning artists. Vavruska art includes Mayan rubbings, sewerrealism, and antiquities from AVA’s Vavruska collection. There will also be drawings and silent auctions. Proceeds will benefit the Langlade County Historical Museum building fund and the museum's AVA Art Gallery.
Sculpture Garden Tour

July 14
Sunday, July 14, AVA will host a tour of two area sculpture gardens. We will meet in the Langlade County Historical Museum parking lot at 12:30 pm and car-pool to  Gunderson’s in Hogarty. If you don't recognize the Gunderson name, just think, "Abraham Lincoln and the Big Highway 52 Hammer." Eric and Molly Gunderson are both artists, who have been working for decades on the art you see on their lawn.

Following the Gunderson tour, we will travel to the Koeppel sculpture garden in Phlox. It features whimsical art by AVA Artist Greg Koeppel using concrete, sheet metal, pillars, totems, sculptures and original Koeppel creations.
