Patterson is a Puschart Prize winning writer for her short fiction, and her first novel has drawn tremendous early praise; Kirkus raves in a starred review, “A talent to watch, Patterson manages to travel broad swaths of history and geography while creating intimate moments with a refreshing lack of sentimentality; and the novel’s sense of adventure makes it addictive reading.” Patterson will be reading from the book, taking questions, and signing copies at The Local Store.

Shakers and Makers: American Folk Art and Beyond Art Exhibit

Galaudet Gallery rings in the holiday season with American Folk Art and Fine Crafts. This eclectic art exhibit begins with art made by 1800’s Shakers alongside fine artists of today and makers of our region. Challenging stereotypes of both folk art and fine art brings fun and interesting art into Galaudet Gallery. The Tower Room’s 500 square feet of space holds the stereotypical American Folk Art found in Shaker art from the mid 1800’s along with folk art produced in the late 20th Century. Shaker Artist Hannah Cohoon’s A Bower of Mulberry Trees (1854) was the initial inspiration for this exhibit since the arching Mulberry trees with text from the Book of Revelations beneath them has charm in the simple lines and colors but also a depth from the Cohoon’s vision about art and faith. Charles Wysocki’s later 20th Century images of a mythical American history that is both storybook and naïve has a similar charm since it springs from a similar source. The Studio Gallery’s over 500 sf displays the forward motion of American Folk Art and how it has come into its own since the 1960’s. Once a term meant to define a period style of art, now Folk Art defines self taught artists who choose experience over education in their pursuit of creating art. Wesley Willis hangs next to Andy Warhol to show how Pop Art holds Folk Art values. That Warhol was trained as an illustrator and not a fine artist did not stop him from becoming a successful artist who changed the face of late 20th Century art

Wreaths Across America - Independence

Event Dates and Times

12/16/2017 - Starts: 11:00 AM
SS Peter and Paul Cemetery, 36028 Osseo Road, Independence WI 54747
Twenty-six years ago this December, a wreath-maker from Maine had 5,000 extra wreaths. Rather than letting them go to waste, he gave the wreaths as a gift of thanks for the service and sacrifice made by our nation’s military so he could live freely to work and raise his family. Morrill Worcester could never have foreseen then how this simple gesture would ignite a passion in the hearts and souls of millions of Americans many years later.
What started as 5,000 wreaths at Arlington has grown to 1.2 million wreaths at 1,228 locations nationwide last year. At Arlington National Cemetery specifically, 245,000 wreaths were placed. This year, American Legion Post 186 in Independence has joined forces with Wreaths Across America to place a wreath at the grave of every veteran buried in Independence, Wisconsin.
We have 350 wreaths to place on the graves at SS Peter and Paul Cemetery, Bethel Cemetery, and Greenwood Cemetery. Each live, balsam remembrance wreath is a gift of respect and appreciation donated by private citizens, organizations, and businesses.
These wreaths will be placed by volunteers like you! Please join us in this event. Bring your children or grandchildren out and allow them to place a wreath. It is an excellent opportunity to remember our veterans, to honor their service, and to teach our children about the freedom we enjoy and the sacrifice of those who defend our freedom.
Events will begin at 11:00 a.m. on December 16th at SS Peter and Paul Cemetery. After a short ceremony and placement of wreaths for each branch of the armed forces, we will move through the cemetery and place the wreaths on the graves of all veterans in SS Peter and Paul Cemetery and then move to Greenwood and Bethel Cemeteries
