"WRAP art shows have changed my life in a big way for which I will be forever grateful. It has been just one year since I have gotten involved and I am a happier/healthier/stronger person/artist because of it. I've met many wonderful new artist friends and am having a great time. Suddenly I am understood, what a relief, since I've surrounded myself with sensitive creative artists."

New feature for 2020 — view the judge and workshop presenter’s pre-recorded talk

The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing us to cancel in-person events like WRAP workshops. Art is an important part of how we retain and share our humanity during uncertain times. While we can’t currently view and appreciate art in person, we can explore other ways to keep art in our lives. Please click on the link below to view a pre-recorded presentation from this year’s Madison Regional WRAP juror and speaker Laurie Talbot Hall. Note: clicking the link will download the presentation to your device, and then open it in PowerPoint/Keynote. Since this is a large file, we recommend viewing on a laptop or desktop computer.
