Downtown Waukesha continues to build a reputation as one of the area’s visual arts hot spots. The West End Artists Group, which supports and promotes the arts in Waukesha and surrounding communities, presents several “art crawls” throughout the year to showcase the city’s many galleries.

Situated at the literal and figurative center of this suburban creative hub is the Almont Gallery (342 W. Main St.). Showcasing the work of three local artists, the Almont will open “Tres Chic: A Wearable and Decorative Art Exhibit” on Jan. 1, 2010.

On display will be new pieces of fused and painted glass jewelry and glassware by Almont co-owner Lynn Gaffey. Katie Holleback will also unveil new decorative stained-glass pieces. New to the Almont, painter Connie Pelzak works with acrylics on canvas and board, and incorporates actual dipped leaves into her unique pieces.

The new exhibit will run through Feb. 16, 2010. Although a date has not yet been established, all three artists will be on hand for a reception at some point during the first week. For more information, call the Almont at (262) 542-1522, or visit www.almontgallery.org.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
