The 6th Annual Between the Bluffs Plein Air Exhibition and Sale was a great success!

Thanks to everyone that came out to the 6th Annual Between The Bluffs Plein Air Exhibition and Sale Friday night. It was an incredible success! Congratulations to all of the collectors who made purchases! There were some real gems in the show that found new homes. Best of all, collectors had a chance to interact with the artists who created the works. There is no better way to collect original art than finding a painting that really speaks to you and then meeting the artist who created it. Numerous longterm friendships have been made this way. Thanks again to all who attended, the committee that organized the event, and the artists who participated. I look forward to seeing everyone again at the 7th Annual BTB Plein Air!

Next Guerrilla Art Show is Friday, June 29, 2018, 6-9pm!



Summer is here and so is our next Guerrilla Art Show. Come join the fun on Friday, JUNE 29th, 2018, 6pm to 9pm, at Studio Gallery 1311, located at 1311 Market Street in La Crosse. The last show was great fun and this one will be no different. We are expecting around 25 local and regional artists working in various media to participate. Just like the previous Guerrilla Shows, the show will be hung an hour prior to the doors opening and what shows up remains a mystery until then! Save the date and please help spread the word.


About Guerrilla Art Shows: These events have roots in the street art movement and are sometimes called “pop-up” shows. Our version is a little different: exhibiting artists are invited by a secret committee, and the names are not published or publicized in advance of the show. Artists are free to show whatever they like (subject to a few simple rules) in the medium/media the artist uses. Artists are not even required to exhibit in true name, so there could be some real surprises!
