 Thanks to all of you for making 2015 another successful Tiny Treasures fundraiser and beautiful exhibit. You all are creative, but collectively you make an incredible artistic presence! 138 artists created 323 Tiny Treasures.  95 works were sold.  On top of that, 85 pieces were generously gifted to either Wounded Warriors, Hope House of Baraboo or the Middleton Library for its fundraiser.

It’s not too early to start thinking about creating something for 2016. Entries can be sent in beginning May 1.

WRAA is the Wisconsin Regional Artists Association, a non-profit organization, started in 1954 with just 36 members. WRAA’s mission then and now is to support Wisconsin Regional Art Program (WRAP) through the UW-Madison, Division of Continuing Studies. Today with over 500 members, WRAA members continue to participate in and promote WRAP exhibits and the annual WRAP State Exhibit and Conference. WRAA publications include Contour Notes, WRAP State Exhibit color catalog, WRAP Timely Treasures calendar, brochures and www.wraawrap.com. In addition, WRAA also kicks off the WRAP State Exhibit and Conference weekend by hosting Evening with the Arts artists’ reception which showcases WRAP State Award art, WRAA sponsored Statewide Teen Art Mentor Program and WRAA Tiny Treasures Exhibit, Competition and Sale.  WRAA also solicits and distributes over $4500 in awards given out at the annual award ceremony which follows the annual WRAP State Exhibit Conference.

WRAP is the Wisconsin Regional Art Program. WRAP exhibits/workshops began in 1940 to encourage the creative growth of Wisconsin non-professional artists from rural areas. WRAP is developed and administered by the  UW-Madison, Division of Continuing Studies and has since expanded to include urban areas. WRAP exhibit/workshops are held throughout the year in over twenty locations all around the state. Regional exhibits include a workshop day for participating artists and the public in which a guest artist gives a lecture or demonstration followed by an educational critique of the exhibited artwork lead by the exhibit judge. Participants may exhibit up to three pieces of art in any WRAP exhibit/workshop. State Award works are eligible to exhibit at the Annual State Art Exhibition and Conference held in September each year in Madison.
