Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will host its first Woodlands Art Expo this weekend, March 24-26. The fun event will include woodland artists and demonstrations, workshops and seminars, plus traditional games. The three-day event is free and open to the community.

"The Woodlands Art Expo is designed to bring contemporary and traditional woodland artists together in a teaching and learning environment where students of every age can appreciate and participate in the various art forms as well as learn about marketing their own arts," shared Roxanne Delille, event organizer and FDLTCC dean of indigenous and academic affairs.

The event will feature demonstrations from talented artists from around the region on a wide variety of mediums including Dana Trickey (quill working), April Stone (black ash basketry), Thomas Howes (wood bending and steam box work), Jessica Gokey (working with beads), Jeff Savage (stonework), Joyce LaPorte (no-face dolls), Moira Villiard (painting), Karen Savage-Blue (painting), and more.

The Woodlands Art Expo will also feature workshops on business planning and marketing for artists featuring Jozef Mikitin, Heart Berry and Moira Villiard.

The Woodlands Art Expo is free and open to the community; however, registration is preferred. For more information and registration, visit or contact DeLille at [email protected].
