Appleton-based actor/film producer (and NEWAA Member!) Dan Davies was recently recognized internationally as Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy at the Golden MOVIE Awards Africa for his role in "A Trip to Jamaica." He's the first American to receive a Golden Movie Award for his role in the No. 1 money-maker in Nollywood history, a feat which will be listed in the 2018 Guiness World Record Book!

Dan spent part of the summer in Iowa, Illinois, and Florida shooting a psychological thriller called 'Mr. Thursday.' A few scenes were also shot in Appleton, Wisconsin. The film stars D.B. Sweeney (Memphis Belle, Eight Men Out, Spawn, Lonesome Dove, The Cutting Edge, Gardens of Stone) along with our own Dan Davies (Ed Gein: The Musical, Tempting Fate, The Runners).

Thanks to Dan's big heart for NEWAA and his home community, we have the honor and privilege of hosting the extended trailer and preview of 'Mr. Thursday' in our new HQ at Foxley's Gallery in Creative Appleton Downtown.

This LIMITED SEATING one night only ticketed event will include a 'Mr. Thursday' sneak preview and trailer, with behind-the-scenes stories about making the film, working with celebrity actors, production challenges, and more! Dan's entertaining presentation will include unique, informative, and funny stories about filming in Africa, Jamaica, and all over the U.S. Audience Q&A to follow.

Guests will also have the opportunity peruse our vast array of original fine art by over 30 NE Wisconsin artists. Craft beer, wine and a variety of hot & cold beverages and light refreshments will also be available for your enjoyment this special evening.

Stay tuned for event details as they unfold!

(Note that NEWAA artist members, arts organizations, supporting businesses, and patrons will get first access and discounted tickets for this world premiere event.)

The Fun Art Sho!

Date:1/6/2018 - 2/24/2018

Cost: Free   Start Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm

Location:Gallery of Wisconsin Fine Art

Address:303 Water St, West Bend, Wisconsin 53095

Event site:     

Event Description

Laughing at someone's art is generally unacceptable.

But.... looking forward to the Gallery's next show in January 2018, we think it will be time to focus on some REAL FUN and frivolity in our lives. Normally, we will be experiencing the post-holiday doldrums, credit card blues, and the dreaded Wisco-winter weariness - to say nothing about more politico stuff that could literally do us in.

So, just laugh it all off with a "FUN" Art Sho!?!?

Come see (and/or exhibit) artwork that reflects all degrees of fun, frivolity, levity, satirical punnery, amusement, wit, and humor. Everything which emotes an acceptable smile or giggle in mixed company, to a gut wrenching, laugh-till-you pee, belly aching scream!
