The Chestnut Gallery aspires to visually enrich our community by exhibiting local, regional and national artists focusing on a broad spectrum of media and expressive styles.
“Photographs of Time” Exhibit by R. Christian Egger
Exhibit Runs August 6-27
Excerpts from Artist Statement:
I consider art to be an expression of an inner life, or a personal vision – a landscape of my individual mind that is shown in the work of art.
… to understand a photograph it must above all else be viewed
… I have always loved the landscape
A camera can take a photograph and “see” what is there photographically only, but it is the case that the camera is only a machine—it does not have a landscape of the mind.
Art is meant to be beautiful. Beauty in a work of art is something learned from it upon it being viewed. A great work of art allows one to return again and again to recognize the old beauty, and then to learn again as a new beauty is recognized.

Once Loved Art
Get your art to us!
We're currently collecting donated art --now!
Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" Silent Auction takes your "retired" art that you've retrieved from the basement or back of the closet, and gives it new life, in someone else's home!
Retired art might take the shape of a piece of wall art, an antique quilt, a piece of lace or jewelry, a sculpture or other three-dimensional pieces, or maybe autographed sheet music.
Donated art can be dropped off at the Chestnut Center during regular office hours (Tuesday through Thursday, 10 am-3pm) or by appointment (715-389-8999).
Let us put your retired treasures back to work!
