LAND O' LAKES - A local art league in Land O' Lakes will soon open their art exhibit to the public.
The Headwaters Art League will put on the exhibit at the Gateway Lodge on County Road B. A reception will be held from 4 to 6 pm on Friday. The group leaders want to use the event to promote communication between local artists.
"We hope to have a number of our artists participating in the show here," said Art League Founder Barbara Nehring. "Some to explain how they do their works and what inspires them."
The group hosts watercolor Wednesdays at the Artisans building in Land O' Lakes during the winter. The league helps promote their local artists so they can compete at art competitions across the state.
"We also sponsor the Wisconsin Regional Art Show, which is a competitive show," explains Nehring. "It allows our artists to enter a show and then win awards that might take them to a state exhibit."
The league currently has about 20 members, and they hope that they can get more artists to join them. If you would like to join the Headwaters Art League, you can contact Barbara at (715) 547-3333.
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander couple thought they were empty nesters. However, an experience volunteering made them open their doors back up to kids who need a temporary home. The Zoerb's adult children moved out years ago. But at any moment they could get a call from social services that make them bring out their parenting skills for another round. Rick and Danielle Zoerb work together as realtors putting people in homes that are the perfect fit. However, the husband and wife know their home can be a good fit for others too. "There's no reason for kids to have to fall through the cracks," said Dani. Rick met a child at a mentorship program a few years ago. It was a meeting that opened a new door for him and his wife. "There was no hesitation on our part when we felt the situation was deteriorating for this young boy," said Rick.
