       Our thanks to ALL THE ARTISTS that contributed
their fabulous pieces to this amazing collage!
All Proceeds will support programs that bring the

And, we're running our "Once-Loved Art" sale at the same time as this October exhibit.
Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" sale 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!
We hope you'll find something that suits your fancy that YOU will want to take home!
Note: Once-Loved Art pieces that are purchased, like the 6x6 canvases, will remain in the gallery through the month of October. You may pick them up starting 4-6pm Oct. 30 or during Office Hours Mon-Thurs, 10am-3pm.

How Did the Community Canvas Collage Come About?

This project was inspired by the Hardy Gallery Tiny Canvas Mosaic Exhibit and sale in Door County. Deanna Mabeus, a member of our Board of Directors, purchased a canvas this summer and was inspired by this wonderful showcase of amateur and professional artists.

Our Chestnut Center Gallery committee saw this as an opportunity to bring the arts to all ages and ability levels in the Marshfield area. Through the months of August and September, the 6" x 6" canvases were distributed to professional artists, Pre-K thru high school students, Senior Center/Parks & Rec Dept, the residents & staff at Aster Assisted LIving, the YMCA youth program, and many families and friends and volunteers/staff at Chestnut Center.

The name of each artist is on the right side of the Collage, along with the title of each piece. Enjoy finding yours or a canvas byhsomeone you know.

We encourage you to take the time to savor the whole collage, and let individual art pieces "speak to you." You might feel compelled to purchase one or more, or make a donation to the Gallery. Chestnut Center marvels at the variety of art and the joy this project brought to so many.

Once Loved Art

Get your art to us!
We're currently collecting donated art --now!

Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" sale 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!

As we travel through life, many types of art touch us in special ways. Gifts of art are given with love. A special moment is remembered with an art piece. Someone creates a piece of art that we value. These all become a part of our home decor and valued treasures.

There is a time however, when we move on, and these things hold a different meaning, but their value does not diminish. Chestnut Center understands and wants to provide a way for you to give these valued art pieces a new life and a new 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.

Consider donating your once-loved art to Chestnut Center. Funds raised are used for educational programming in the arts.

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!

Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" Sale will be held at least once annually. Watch for it! Sign up for our email blasts to be notified. Also, a selection of this art is on display--and for sale-- in the Terrazzo Room year-round.
