Fall and Art in Central Wisconsin

14 Oct

Art Among the Ice Age Trail:  What better time than fall to travel through Wisconsin and visit artists at their homes showing their art.  The art work ranging from pottery to paintings to baskets weaving, glass blowing and much more mixed with the rugged surroundings and brilliant fall colors made it a breathtaking experience.

The Ice Age Trail, one of the only eleven National Scenic Trails, is a thousand-mile footpath highlighting  Wisconsin’s Ice Age heritage. We walked two miles of it, leaving the rest for another time.

In addition to visiting artists’ studios, some in homes and some in barns, we  stopped at the Rising Star Mill, built in 1855 is one of the oldest flour mills, now turned into a museum.  Some pictures below of the trip and the fall colors.
