Wisconsin Regional Art Program (WRAP) is an art exhibit administered by the UW-Madison's Department of Liberal Studies and the Arts. WRAP exhibits began in 1940 to encourage creative growth of Wisconsin's non-professional artists from rural areas. 

Exhibits are held throughout the year and include a workshop day for participating artists and the public. A guest artist gives a lecture or demonstration and critique of the exhibited artwork.  State Award works are eligible to exhibit at the 2014 Annual State Art Exhibition and Conference which will be held in September at the Center for Visual Art in Wausau, WI.

The month of March was a big highlight at the Tomah Arts Guild!   

The Tomah Arts Guild would like to thank B. Squat Woody and Rick Sampson and friends, our hosts for the 2014 Bards 'N Ballads show! The duo gave a marvelous performance and gave the audience a treat with guitar and banjo music!  
The Woody Sampson duo are members of the ‘Riverbenders’, the house band for the popular variety radio show, ‘The Big River Radio Wave’ broadcast by Wisconsin Public Radio. 

A special thanks goes to our Bards; Peggy Zahrte, Lynn Clark, Jackie Burlingame and Karen DiCarlo who added a special flair to the evening with humor and touching stories!!
