Two judges will select 3 Awards of Excellence totaling $300 and 3 Honorable Mention Ribbons. Always the third Saturday in July!!

It was in 1972 that five community-minded people gathered together and imagined the possibility of  organizing an art show in Eagle River, WI.   Those five people were Donna Schwartz. Mary Ann Hansen, Marion Raasch, Russ Holperin, and Wendy Christian. The original committee formulated a plan to bring culture and creativity to the Northwoods area, and in the process, generate funds that could be returned to the community as charitable donations.  They decided to call the show Artarama.  From that core group grew what has become one of the Midwest’s most prestigious art and crafts shows.  Now 45 years later the tradition continues.
