Shawano Art Alliance reuniting

The Shawano Art Alliance will reunite, five years after disbanding, for an art show Labor Day weekend at Badger's Best Furniture and Bedding in Bonduel.

"The organization kind of broke up as we all got older," said Judy Bryant, a painter in the alliance. "We used to do shows all over the state together, but it got to be too much after a while. We still enjoy the art and we still do art, but we're just not the active participants as we used to be."
