Display Your Projects at the FairSubmitted: 06/13/2013

RHINELANDER - Whether you make great cookies or great works of art, Oneida County Fair organizers want to see what you can do.

The county fair doesn't start until August 1st. But organizers need your project submissions before July 1st.

You just need to decide what you'd like to show off and then figure out which category or exhibition book your project falls under.

Oneida County U.W. 4-H Youth Development Agent Lynn Feldman says there's an exhibition book for just about any project and age.

"Maybe there's a special picture that you took this year that you would like to have other people see and you would like to have critiqued by a judge. Then you take this exhibition book and look through the cultural arts category, look for the photography area, and then it will show you the different types of photography exhibits that can be brought in."

The exhibition books and entry forms can be found at the Rhinelander Chamber, the Rhinelander Senior Center, or at the UW-Extension Office located at the Rhinelander Airport.

PRESQUE ISLE - The art of violin making dates back hundreds of years, and Brian Derber is carrying on the tradition. He wanted to go into furniture making, but fell into instrument design after taking a class in college. In 1999, he opened his own school. It's the only violin making school in Wisconsin.

"The program itself is modeled after a German school of violin making," said New World School of Violin Making Owner Brian Derber. "Students have to fulfill a certain requirement before they can apply to graduate. So the minimum time they are with me is three years."

Students start out by making the body of a violin in their first year. As they progress, they add the scroll and varnish, which can take months for students to finish. Nearing the end of their stay, they can even try to make a cello.

"In the time that I have with students in the school here, I can only give them so much, and then it's time for them to go someplace else and get more knowledge," said Derber.
