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.

Val Berkely Painting Exhibition

"Val Berkely Paintings in Oil and Wax"
Exhibit runs November 1-30

Regional contemporary artist Val Berkely is a painter who challenges herself in new media and techniques.  For her work in oil and cold wax, Val only uses the primary colors plus white, pushing the textural paint into more abstract images based on a sense of light and space.  It is the feeling of the landscape, perhaps with a hint of actuality, that is her primary focus.

The public is invited to attend an Artist Reception
to meet Valerie Berkely and view her art on
Friday November 8, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Upcoming Exhibits

Get your art to us!
We're currently collecting donated art --now, right up to Chestnut's Holiday Showcase event.

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!

Chestnut Center's "Once Loved Art" Silent Auction will be held during our Holiday Showcase event Sunday December 8. Holiday Showcase runs 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and the Auction will run 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
