RHINELANDER - You can find a family's creative work on display at Nicolet College. Today was the opening of the Generations Exhibit.
All three artists have been making masterpieces throughout the last several decades---and are all related.
Pastel Artist Andrea Fenner is the family's middle daughter. She's lived in the Northwoods for years. For her it's the perfect place to be an artist.
"All I have to do is walk outside to get my inspiration. Many of my pastels are from local areas as well as travels I have done in the past."
Fenner's father is also featured artist in the gallery. He passed away in the early 2000's---but he's another reason she stays inspired.
"In his 50's he decided if his daughters could be artists, then he could be one too. My father is a big inspiration to me but like I said we come from a family of artists. We inspire each other I think."
The Generations Art Exhibit will be featured at the Nicolet Gallery until March 18th.
MERRILL - Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he didn't want to spend too much time at the Republican National Convention last week because he wanted to get back to campaigning in his home state.
The senator from Oshkosh stopped at the Lincoln County Fair on Saturday.
He faces a tight races against former Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis).
Johnson gave a speech on Tuesday in Cleveland about national security, as he is the chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security.
He seems pleased with the Republican presidential ticket.
"I think it's really complimentary to the skills Donald Trump brings to the table," Johnson said. "You got Donald Trump with the private sector experience. You got Mike Pence with a real record accomplishment both in the House and as the governor of Indiana. I think it's a pretty good pairing."
He said he wouldn't pay too much attention to the speeches at the Democratic National Convention this week.
"They've got their ticket, we've got our ticket," Johnson said. "They'll make a bunch of promises they can't deliver on. And what we're going to focus on is economic growth, strengthen our economy so we can strengthen our military, so we can defeat ISIS and secure our borders."
