The Winter Art Fair Off the Square (formerly the Winter Art Festival) was started in 1989 as a companion
show to our summer Art Fair Off the Square. The show is held in the
Exhibition Hall of the spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Monona
Terrace Convention and Community Center, which is located 3 blocks
off Madison's Capitol Square. It takes place on November 14 and 15, 2015 and the hours are 9:00 to 5:00 on Saturday and 10:00
to 4:00 on Sunday.
Our Winter Art Fair Off the Square features 144
Wisconsin exhibitors with a wonderful selection of pottery, paintings,
fiber, glass art, wood, photography, jewelry, graphics, sculpture and more.
In addition, on Saturday the art festival features a very successful Silent Auction of artwork contributed by our exhibitors. Part of the proceeds benefit our Youth Scholarship Fund.
There is a Young Collectors' Corner where only children under twelve are admitted to purchase artwork of their choosing. Much of the art is the same as in exhibitors' booths but at a much reduced price. See our WAAC Winter Art Fair Off the Square Gallery for photos of the fair.
Musical entertainment ranges from Celtic to New Orleans blues to classical with special performances by advanced piano students of area piano teachers.
