Each year the Woman’s Club of Pewaukee hosts the Helen Farnsworth Mears Art Contest for middle school students in our community. Artwork is displayed and judged at the Pewaukee Public Library. A reception is held with punch and cookies in the Community Room. Volunteers from the Woman’s Club help to hang and display the artwork.
Club women are encouraged to share their artistic talents by participating in the Member Arts and Crafts Contest. The contest is open to all members and specific details can be found in your Membership Booklet. There are dozens of art categories, including photography! Get creative and share your art with others to make our world a brighter happier place.
If you are interested in attending an event related to Arts and Culture, please contact Abby Lorenz. We will gladly look into group rates to attend a concert, play or other special event related to the arts in our community.
