If you’re looking for a reason to take a road trip to historic Cedarburg, look no further than the Cedarburg Artists Guild’s Annual Juried Exhibit and Sale, on display Aug. 10-Oct. 13 with an opening reception Friday, Sept. 6, 6-9 p.m. Approximately 100 artworks by Guild members will be on display, with media ranging from oil, watercolor and acrylic to sculpture, jewelry, fiber and photography. All artists hail from Ozaukee or Washington Counties, but aside from this uniting factor, expect a diversity of theme and styles in this full-spectrum show.

Cash prizes will be awarded to winning artists during the opening reception and visitors will have the opportunity to vote on the People’s Choice Award beginning on Aug. 10. All artworks are displayed at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, W62 N546 Washington Ave. Admission is free.
