RHINELANDER - Artists found out who won the Northern National Art Competition Tuesday night.
Artists from across the country submitted artwork to the art competition held at Nicolet College in Rhinelander this year.
Organizers expect about 200 people at the reception.
Some of the artists that submitted work will be at Nicolet.
The artists competed for $8,500 in prize money.
The entries come from all over the country, but there is art from the Northwoods on display.
Artists from Rhinelander, Antigo and Lake Tomahawk have work in the show.
"This year 35 different states are represented here. We had 266 entries and the judge has a really difficult job because that was 512 images and she has to select only 80 or 90 to fit in our space," says the Art Gallery Director, Katy Ralph.
This is the 27th year the Nicolet Art Gallery has hosted the competition.
The judge has to go through all the art twice to decide on the winners.
"She decides on which ones work together and which ones she thinks will be the most interesting pieces on our walls after that she comes here and then she spent three hours here yesterday looking at all the art to decide on the awards," says Ralph.
If you didn't make it to the reception, you can still see the art.
WAUSAU - Police in Wausau expect to forward forgery charges to the Marathon County District Attorney against four people after finding counterfeit money in the area.
Patrick J. Eppolite Jr., 22; Michael A. Beck, 27; Jeremy J. Hess, 36; and Amanda M. Bender, 32, are currently in jail on probation holds, but investigators believe they're connected to some counterfeit $20 bills in the area, according to the Wausau Police Department.
