“Woodlands & Pathways” by Anthony P. Scott

For the month of November, Chestnut Center for the Arts is excited to welcome artist Anthony Scott with his exhibit: “Woodlands & Pathways,” featuring some incredible photography pieces! His exhibit will be running from November 3rd to November 30th. Join us in welcoming him and meet the face behind the art at his artist reception on November 3rd from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Come in during our normal business hours or contact us to set up a time to come see this gorgeous exhibit!

Artist Statement

In the UK, where I am from, we venerate our pathways to the extent of having a National Footpath Day when many volunteers walk ALL the paths, thus guaranteeing that the public right-of-way is preserved.  These walks are often across windswept moors and barren hills. Here in Wisconsin, pathways seem more intimate, and they give you a glimpse of being inside the woods. So, I’m trying to capture the colors, light and shadow, the brushes with wildlife, and the outskirts of small towns and woodland parishes, that you can enjoy when walking the woods of Wisconsin.

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.
