American Impressionists - Woodson Art Museum

Edward Willis Redfield, Winter in the Valley, ca. 1905-1915, oil on canvas
The Woodson Museum in Wausau's new exhibit opens tomorrow and runs through February 21st.  Entitled "The Lure of the Artists' Colony" it features works by John Singer Sargent, William Merritt Chase, Mary Cassatt and others.  The museum also has a wonderful permanent collection so allow plenty of time to see that, too.  It hosts the world famous"Birds in Art" exhibit every fall but their permanent collection is every bit as interesting and full of beautiful paintings. It's a nice day trip but the last time I went I stayed overnight at the Jefferson Street Inn downtown which was very nice and close to the museum.  The Woodson is well worth the trip!!
