AVA is gearing up for its first annual Christmas Tree ornament competition. The competition is part of the AVA's Art Under the Tree holiday show. Art Under the Tree is a show to promote art as a Christmas gift.

Art Under the Tree
will open Friday, November 24. The Ornaments will be unveiled at the a wine and cheese open house Friday evening December 1, beginning at 5 pm.

People's choice awards will be presented to the artists whose entries are voted most popular in both the Art Under the Tree and the Christmas Tree Ornament competition.

Both Art Under the Tree and the ornament competition is open to everyone. We're hoping to see a lot of entries as all proceeds from sale of the ornaments will go to the Aspirus Langlade Hospital Auxiliary. The auxiliary is raising money to purchase a wireless EKG unit for the Birnamwood Clinic.

Instructions for the ornament competition and the Art Under the Tree entry form are here:
